MM-L is an architecture and design studio based in London, founded by Miska Miller-Lovegrove. The studio works on architecture projects, exhibition design and installations in the arts and cultural sector. MM-L projects are often considered a dialogue between space, volume, light and weight, with an emphasis on sensitivity to materials.
Polish-born Miska Miller-Lovegrove has worked as an architect and designer for thirty years. Her studio approaches each project by observing and investigating the cultural context of a space to understand it’s intrinsic character and materiality. Regardless of the scale of a project, there is an attention to detail in the delivery of a design concept, driven by a personal commitment to Miska’s professional practice. The results are a delicate balance of textures, combining the heritage of natural materials and the innovation of modern production.
As a founding partner of Lovegrove Studio, London, Miska has extensive experience of industrial design research in material innovation and manufacturing techniques. She led on many conceptual and progressive architectural projects such as Solar Seed, a self-sufficient living concept prefabricated in advanced materials, Toyo Ito’s Mediatheque in Sendai, Japan, and the Lovegrove Studio office building. Through her experience at Lovegrove Studio, Miska brings an experimental, industrial design thinking to architectural projects.
In 2009 Miska co-founded the Creative Project Foundation which aims to promote contemporary Polish design across the world with the objective of facilitating mutual dialogue between the design sector and industry. As part of her work for the Creative Project Foundation, Miska co-curated and designed the Young Creative Poland series of exhibitions in London and Milan. In 2011, Miska was commissioned by the National Museum in Warsaw to design the exhibition We Want To Be Modern: Polish Design 1955-1968.
Since 2016 MML Studio has collaborated with Mathilde Bretillot Studio in Paris on various projects such as Concept Craft Store in Bangkok and the Exhibition Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick at Somerset House in London.
More recently, the studio was commissioned to design the first edition of Draw Art Fair which took place at Saatchi Gallery in London. The design of Draw was successful in visually reinterpreting and re-thinking the scenography of an art fair by creating an open, minimalist backdrop which allowed the artwork to take centre stage.
Miska’s latest architectural projects are a London apartment and the complete renovation and extension of a sixteenth-century building in Poland.
