Zigelbaum + Coelho are showing until 31 March 2011 at Riflemaker, 79 Beak Street, London, W1F 9SU.

Zigelbaum + Coelho is a post-industrial design studio founded by Jamie Zigelbaum ( b.1978, Boston, Mass, USA) and Marcelo Coelho ( b.1980, Campinas, Brazil).

Operating at the intersection of design, technology, science, and art, their work utilises physical, computational, and cultural materials in the service of creating new, but fundamentally human, experiences. Jamie and Marcelo began collaborating while students at the MIT Media Lab. They have lectured, published and exhibited internationally. Jamie Zigelbaum

Jamie Zigelbaum builds and studies next generation computer interfaces, augmented objects, and human experiences. His work is multidisciplinary, straddling design, human-computer interaction, media theory, and cognitive science.

Jamie received a Master of Science degree from the MIT Media Lab in 2008 working in the Tangible Media Group. Before coming to the Media Lab, Jamie received a Bachelor of Arts in 2006 from Tufts University where he majored in Human-Computer Interaction.
