Rebar is an interdisciplinary studio operating at the intersection of art, design and ecology. Our mission is to create objects, spaces and ideas that inspire people to re-imagine the environment and our place in it.

Our studio produces artwork and design solutions that shape the landscape and public realm, rooted in the belief that human interaction, community and a sense of wonder form the basis of the good life. We engage with large projects and small, from city and regional scale plans to design objects that fit in the hand.

Founded in 2004 and based in San Francisco, Rebar has created work at venues and institutions around the globe, including the Venice Architecture Biennale, ISEA Dublin, ExperimentaDesign Amsterdam, SmartCity Paris, the Benaki Museum Athens, the Harvard GSD, U.C. Berkeley and the California College of the Arts.

The Rebar workspace includes both a cutting-edge design studio and a full metal fabrication and wood shop for project prototyping and design development. We believe that material experimentation is an integral part of the design process that leads to better art, better ideas and better design solutions. More >>

The artists, designers, thinkers and makers at Rebar are trained in a variety of disciplines to form a team with deep, broad and diverse expertise. Add in a rotating cast of apprentices, collaborators and volunteers, and the studio stays buzzing at all hours. More >>
