We are Charles & Shai and together we form a creative duo currently based in Brussels, Belgium. Since the start of our collaboration, our work has been our instrument to understand and relate with the world around us.

We both hold a Bachelor of Architecture from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, where we also met, and became partners.

Situated at the crossroads of art and architecture, our activity focuses on the interrelation between people, spaces and places in the present-day context. We are drawn to artificiality, architectural scenography, manipulations, and defining identity in relation to space. With our experimental approach, the outcome of our work is consciously kept undetermined and is the result of the interlacing of our imagination, observation and action.
