Who decided a spherical crystal ball would be the right medium for seeing meaningful visions? Who first looked at the lines in a human palm and saw an interface for accessing the future?
Form is an integral part of making the future accessible. Whether it’s robotics, autonomous vehicles or a crystal ball, Woke studios excels at bridging radical, innovative concepts with beautiful, approachable design.
Before journeying too far into the future, we’d first like to revisit the past.
The year is 1954, and Hormozd is hosting a group of friends and family at his home in Yazd, a small village in Iran. He’s the village palm reader and his audience has come to him for their fortunes. Then and now, it’s a scary and beautiful thing to look into the future. Sometimes you need a trained eye to guide you. Hormozd offered that guidance for many, many years to many, many people.
Hormozd’s story and work resonated deeply with his grandson, Afshin, who found Woke studios in 2013. Design is a lot like fortune telling, after all. Like palm reading, it’s a way of expressing something new.
Come in and have a seat, the future is waiting.
