Social Studies was founded by architect and product designer, Shawn Weiland and designer, Lauren Woodward, with the purpose to tell unique stories through architecture, interiors, objects and branded experiences. We combine a high level of taste, intellectual ideas and thoughtful craftsmanship to each of our projects. 

We believe in a hands on approach to design, that is why our design process is about making things just as much as designing things. Whether we are creating a physical space or a brand identity, we develop a tactile material palette enhances the unique story of each project.
