Studio Pi-a United Kingdom

Studio Pi-a (named after the Pia Mater, the innermost covering of the brain) is the moniker under which British doctor, designer and inventor Luke Hale works. Hale sits at the crossroads between the many varied ways in which we understand and interact with our surroundings, and is fascinated by the many ways in which art and science may overlap and merge. His latest invention—an app named Lungy—is designed to guide people visually as they breathe, and is just one example of his mission to combine science and design to bring the technological possibilities of the future into peoples’ everyday lives.
