Creatively rethinking the way in which people dwell, Klein Agency focuses on simple solutions to living well. With a background in architecture and their previous art studio, LMBRJK (www. lmbrjk.com), Klein Agency is built on experience, an understanding of design processes, and a desire to give spaces, products and brands new, unexpected identities, rich in materials and attentive to details. Klein Agency understands and applies its’ design process in a holistic way, creating for its clients new untold stories, where all components come together in an elegant and coherent narration.
Maša and Jon Kleinhample started Klein Agency in 2015 in Antwerp, Belgium, with an idea to weave together their independent areas of expertise into one creative venture. Formally trained as an architect in Los Angeles, Jon designed for Neil Denari in Los Angeles, Asymptote Architects in New York and in Berlin for Barkow Leibinger Architects. In 2012 he started his first independent venture, an art studio - LMBRJK. With a policy advising background and long nights amidst international politics, Maša took a career turn and today acts as an integral creative and managing partner of Klein Agency. Jon’s pedigree along with Maša’s Slovenian background, which intertwine a mixture of geometric acrobatics and a rich appreciation for raw materials, is what forms the principles behind Klein Agency. The couple migrated their studio to Southern California early 2017 and today they design out of their agency in the Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles.
