Dyvik Kahlen is a London/Porto/Oslo based office established in 2010 by Christopher Dyvik and Max Kahlen operating across various scales and sectors in the UK, Holland, Germany and Norway, collaborating with clients ranging from public institutions and developers to artists, curators and private individuals.
Underlying our work is a desire for objects and spaces that are comfortable and strangely familiar, as much as a fascination for rational and neutral form. Our aspiration is to create good spaces that improve the quality of life of those who inhabit them, be it through a piece of furniture, a building or an urban plan.
We regularly contribute to the academic discourse as critics and lecturers for academic institutions in London and abroad. Currently we are running ADS5, a Postgraduate Master Course at The Royal College of Art.
Christopher graduated from the Architectural Association in 2008, where he met Max Kahlen and began the collaboration that led to the founding of Dyvik Kahlen in 2010. He's currently running a Postgraduate Master Course at The Royal College of Art.
Max studied at Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design and then at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London, where he graduated with Honours in 2008. Max was a tutor at Architectural Association from 2009 to 2015, running design units in the First Year, Diploma School and Media School. He's currently running a Postgraduate Master Course at The Royal College of Art.
