M / M (Paris) was founded in 1992 by Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag. As part of their work as designers, their activities extend to art, music and fashion. They have overcome the boundaries between disciplines, and as self-proclaimed graphic designers, they understand their work strategically from a creative point of view.
Michael Amzalag studied at the "Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs" in Paris. Mathias Augustyniak on the other hand studied at the "Royal College of Arts" in London. From their office in Paris they have established long-term collaboration links, namely in the area of art (Philippe Parreno, Pierre Huyghe, Liam Gillick, Dominique Gonzalez Foerster), music (Björk, Madonna, Benjamin Biolay, The Micronauts ...), fashion (Yohji Yamamoto, Jil Sander, Balenciaga, Stella McCartney, ...), with magazines of all kinds (Vogue Paris, iD, Purple Fashion, Arena Homme Plus, V Magazine, Frog, Eden, Documents sur l'art), as well as several institutions of Arts (Palais de Tokyo Museum of Modern Art in Paris, Centre Pompidou, Le Consortium, Deste Foundation, Serpentine Gallery).
