In 2019, Mason Studio began exploring the public health issue of social isolation in the aging population. We examined how design can reduce social isolation and loneliness, and the stigma around aging and aging in place.

La Banane

In any environment, the experience of the guest is influenced and engaged by each of the senses. This is especially essential in a restaurant environment where every element is crucial to the overall dining experience.
