A creative bureau producing

cultural content for unusual people,

organizations, and institutions.

New York City



What makes artists and entrepreneurs so similar?

They are both humanists, innovators, interdisciplinary thinkers, passionate about their craft and knowledge. Both tell great stories, work best under constraints and are usually “initially wrong” to end up “ultimately right”.

At the crossover of these two worlds stands Studio 55.

We are a creative bureau who conceives, analyses, initiates, consults, coaches, curates and connects.

Whatever we do, we try not to forget John Howkins’ rules for entrepreneurs in the creative economy: Have fun, learn endlessly, be kind and ambitious, treat the virtual as real, admire success openly, be nomadic and (re)invent yourself!


Moving in the fields of visual arts, fashion and design, we work for brands, cultural and educational institutions, individual artists, and creative entrepreneurs.

By conceiving and providing strategy and business guidance to these visionaries, we help them to better unfold and sustain their creative ventures.

By producing original creative content and building bridges between people, organizations and institutions, we help to tell stories, promote unorthodox perspectives, challenge the obvious, and foster divergent thinking and solutions.



PLAY ground presents our current most favorite pastimes. Art, video, animation, new media and simply amazing projects are featured as plain visual stimulus.
