Florian Ortkrass and Hannes Koch were both born in 1975 in Germany. The two met at Brunel University before going on to study at the Royal College of Art. Random International was founded in 2005 and is based in London, with an outpost in Berlin, the studio today employs a large and diverse team.
Random International is a collaborative studio for experimental practice within contemporary art. Using science to develop a new material vocabulary, its work invites viewers to consider the man/machine relationship through explorations of behavior and natural phenomena.
In more than a decade since the studio’s inception, the focus of Random International’s artistic practice has continuously evolved, and today it embraces sculpture, performance, and installation, often on an architectural scale. Their highly collectable work creates a bridge between objects and products by merging monumental design and graphic artwork.
Randoms International are acclaimed for their interactive installation Rain Room which can be permanently found at Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
