The OI Design Studio
We design out of our gorgeous studio in Chicago’s industrial West Loop neighborhood although we travel nationally and are very effective at executing remotely. It is a highlight when we are able to host our clients for design meetings in our beautiful, sun-drenched, and plant filled space. Our office is equipped with state of the art technology that allows us to present design concepts to clients who join us in the office, and to clients we work with across the country.
