FUTUREFORMS is an award-winning art and design studio based in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2009. Founders Jason Kelly Johnson and Nataly Gattegno have collaborated on a range of projects exploring the intersections of art and design with public space, performance, advanced fabrication technologies, robotics, and responsive building systems. Recent projects have included fine art objects, furniture and lighting fixtures, art pavilions and sculptural shade canopies, as well as large scale urban art installations and art master plan consulting.

From 2002-2018 the studio was called Future Cities Lab.
