Who We Are

We believe that purposeful design has the ability to change the way people work, live and interact with each other.

Started in 2013, Pophouse is a design studio located in Detroit, Michigan. We are a team of interior, industrial and environmental graphic designers and strategists focused on positively impacting people through design. Leveraging industry research and business intelligence, we create a meaningful strategy that informs our approach to design.

Our team translates this design narrative throughout every aspect of our projects including finishes, space plans, custom furniture, branding, wayfinding, signage and artwork to transform spaces into ones that highlight culture, increase productivity and optimize business outcomes.

This alignment of science and art is what we call Thoughtfully Assembled Spaces.
