Bespoke Functional Art
BREAKFAST is a studio of multidisciplinary artists and engineers that conceive, design, and fabricate high-tech contemporary art installations and sculptures. BREAKFAST has over 15 large-scale pieces that can be found in various museums, arenas, and lobby spaces throughout the world.
Founded in 2009 by Andrew Zolty, Mattias Gunneras, and Michael Lipton, BREAKFAST sets out to develop interactive artwork that leverages online data in new and profound ways. What separates BREAKFAST from other studios is their unique ability to develop entirely new ideas while having all the necessary skillsets under one roof to produce the piece. By bringing the artist, designer, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and software engineer to the same table, BREAKFAST can conceive ideas that are at the cutting edge of creativity and technology.
BREAKFAST’s goal is to create installations that appeal to the widest of audiences and attempt to extend that experience via the web to people around the world.
