The Burdick Group, located in San Francisco, California,
applies the disciplines of industrial design, interior architecture,
graphic and interactive media design to the development of
information and entertainment environments, furniture and
products, for clients worldwide. In our work, we seek
"functional change" resulting in unique solutions that have
changed the perception of what a museum, exhibition,
retail environment, desk or chair can be.
The cross-fertilization of ideas that occurs from working within
a variety of disciplines broadens the thinking we apply to each
of our projects and encourages an innovative approach.
The unifying aspect of our work is the singular philosophy
we apply to each project, regardless of scale.
In our development of information and entertainment
environments -- be they a museum, exhibition, showroom,
visitor center or retail store -- our goal is to "fuse content with form"
so that the design of the environment reinforces the content or
product message. We seek methods which will attract,
engage, challenge and inform the targeted audiences.
As pioneers, in the late 1970's of the use of
interactive compute technology in public environments,
we continue to look for ways to appropriately integrate
multimedia - both computer and video -- into our work,
to expand the visitor's experience.
