Tangible Interaction creates sensory installations where people participation is key. Our work taps into some of the most basic human instincts, to play and explore. It also generates talk value through a shared experience.
Tangible is led by founder and Creative Director, Alex Beim. Our team is a diverse mix of talent spanning graphic, industrial and audio design as well as programming, electronics engineering and production.
The Tangible studio was established in 2006 and since then we’ve produced branded interactive experiences for companies including Ford, Verizon, ESPN, Heineken, Samsung, Nokia, Adidas and MTV. In the entertainment sector, we've collaborated with Blue Man Group, Sensation White, Arcade Fire, Green Day, Coldplay and Chemical Brothers.
Tangible also creates public artworks. CODE Live (2010 Winter Olympic Games), City of Turin, the Vancouver Aquarium, Siggraph, Cine Kid and Illuminate Yaletown are just some of the clients and venues we’ve produced installations for.
Our range of experiential products is available for rent or long-term licensing. It currently includes the Digital Graffiti Wall, Zygote Balls, Social Mosa (Twitter and Instagram Wall) and Telophase.
Located in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, we operate globally. Tangible Interaction also has partner companies in the Netherlands, Italy, UAE and the UK.
