IAMMI is a design studio founded in 2020 by Portuguese designer Nicolau dos Santos and French-Italian art director Stephanie Blanchard. The studio is focused on blurring the lines between classic and contemporary design through the exploration of new and unconventional combinations. The intention is to challenge traditional notions and arouse emotions throughout irony and provocation.


IAMMI’s creative process is driven by intuition and deep listening, engaging in extensive research to develop projects that evoke emotional responses, prompting to take action. The studio pays meticulous attention to context, process, and semantics, ensuring that the final result achieves the highest level of expression.


IAMMI undertakes a diverse range of projects, both self-initiated and client-commissioned, constantly experimenting with various techniques and materials, pushing the boundaries of design. As IAMMI believes in the timelessness of ideas, the approach focuses on capturing the essence of an idea rather than conforming to fleeting trends.


Overall, IAMMI combines innovation, unconventional thinking, and emotional engagement to create thought-provoking and impactful designs.
