Studio ck is a design studio started by Chris Koroknay in 2007, whose 30 years of design experience working in multi-disciplinary design firms, and working independently, has produced projects in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia.

Retail, hospitality, and exclusive residential interiors have been the main focus of the studio. At studio ck, listening carefully, and then distilling the clients’ visions, will shape the final design. We want to design and build exciting interior spaces.

Part of what makes up a dynamic design studio, is a stable of interesting projects and clients. The ability to work on a variety of project types, from residential to commercial, can create a cross-pollenization of ideas and techniques. Team-work can result in a fantastic resolution of problems, and can lead to much more creative idea generation, than is possible individually.

This is not a guru firm, where just one person dictates the design, but rather collaboration between focused design talent and clients who see design as part of their edge over their competition.
