Karlssonwilker Inc

Karlssonwilker inc. is a design studio located in the heart of Manhattan, founded by Icelander Hjalti Karlsson and Jan Wilker from Germany.

The two of them (plus one intern) are working on all sorts of projects, and from time to time there are parties on their backyard rooftop. Their work has appeared in multiple design publications and they have received numerous awards.

In 2003, Princeton Architectural Press published their Tellmewhy, a book that chronicles their first 24 months in business. Since then, nothing has really changed. The partners frequently lecture and give workshops on design around the world, and they continue to work with an eclectic list of clients, including A, the B, C, D, E, the F Club, G, H mag, I, J, and K.
