Urban Matter Inc is an interdisciplinary experience design studio based in Dumbo, Brooklyn. It was founded in 2012 by Shagun Singh, Valeria Bianco, and Rick Lin.
Shagun Singh is an interaction designer with a background in architecture. Valeria Bianco is an accomplished creative director and product designer. Rick Lin is a creative technologist with an interest in film and video and a background in sculpture and installation.
Together, we create work that tells stories, visualizes information, and inspires interaction. We believe that compelling narratives and thoughtfully designed spaces make our lives better. Working at the intersection of design, technology, and community, we craft environments and experiences that delight, surprise, and engage.
Urban Matter Inc has worked with a variety of partners and clients, including government organizations like the New York City Department of Transportation and cultural organizations and nonprofits like the New Museum, The Bronx Museum of Arts, Brooklyn Arts Council, Architecture for Humanity, The Red Hook Initiative, Feast Conference, and Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership among others.
Our Silent Lights project was awarded the Artplace America grant for excellence in creative-placemaking and the Black Rock Foundation grant for interactive art and civic participation. We’ve also won the Community Arts Fund Award from Brooklyn Arts Council, the Local Arts Support Award from NYSCA, and the Urban Arts Program Grant from the NYC DOT two years in a row.
