DESIGNER | Samantha McKenzie
Samantha McKenzie’s personal story plays a big part in the conception of the Studio Acustico business. The silver lining to dealing with vestibular migraine, was her raised awareness of the negative impacts of noisy spaces. She gathered local craftspeople and spent two years in research and development, focused on human centred design and the desire to create an acoustic lighting collection with triple impact – to make spaces look, sound and feel better.
‘I always start with how I want a space to feel. Design is not just about the visual elements, it needs to cater to all the senses,’ says Director and Interior Designer Samantha McKenzie.
