M–L–XL is an office for production and research across different disciplines, focusing on furniture, graphics, exhibitions, typography and publishing.
The studio was founded by Marco Campardo and Lorenzo Mason, a synergistic duo of designer-researchers, working through a plurality of languages, skills and knowledge.
M–L–XL grows out of a variety of several distinct practices and professional experiences, from which it gains its transdisciplinarity approach.
Among them a graphic design and art-direction studio (Tankboys), a publishing house (Automatic Books), exhibition curating, teaching and holding lectures and workshops.
Recent projects include Forato (005), a lightweight stool, Venezia (004), a sans-serif typeface, Occasional Radio (013), an irregular on-line radio and Horns (009), a glass-blown neon lamp.
Furthermore M–L–XL has curated and produced shows (The Breakfast Pavilion, Club House, Heavy Formal Exercises etc), in which design is used to create environments for social and cultural events.
