Mike Vanis and Cindy Strobach

London design studio Unit Lab was founded by designer-maker Cindy Strobach and designer-engineer Mike Vanis with the aim of bringing science out of the lab and into everyday life. Having met at the Royal College of Art, the duo launched their studio in November 2015 with the Gravity Ruler – a desktop tool for measuring both length and weight – and have gone on to work on a number of projects that translate scientific theory into physical objects. Alongside its core projects, Unit Lab creates workshops and installations for schools, museums and cultural institutions.
