Inside School/SS99’s São Paulo Studio
School/SS99 is a small and independent branding studio based in São Paulo, Brazil. The company itself was inspired by Alexander McQueen’s Spring/Summer 1999 catwalk, which the firm notes “was the first time a fashion brand mixed technology, brand experience and art direction at the same time on a runway show.”
This connection of branding, experience, and art direction is something that easily spills over into the firms office. Housing a total of 5 employees, the studio is made up of several rooms which all carry the white/black/gold color scheme – and all containing great design finds. Even the restroom doesn’t miss a beat.
My favorite room is the lobby / reception, which is perfectly designed to reflect the image of the company. The main workroom is lined with magazine racks and contains a large worktable where all employees can be found.
