About

ESI DESIGN TRANSFORMS PLACES INTO EXPERIENCES

ESI Design, an NBBJ studio, is an experience design practice that seamlessly weaves the physical and digital worlds together to create immersive experiences with enduring impact.

From our roots reinventing the Brooklyn Children’s Museum into one of the country’s first interactive museums, ESI Design has defined the field of experience design for over forty years, fundamentally changing how people connect with brands, organizations, cultural institutions and, most importantly, each other.

Our multi-disciplinary team creates solutions that are permanent, yet flexible with designs that grow and evolve to meet the changing needs of both our clients and their audiences.

In 2020, ESI Design was acquired by global architecture and design firm NBBJ. Together, we’ll provide unified services that integrate architecture, interiors and experience design resulting in more impactful and streamlined designs. We’re excited to also bring immersive experiences to a wider range of industries. NBBJ creates innovative places and experiences for organizations worldwide and designs environments, communities and buildings that enhance people's lives. Founded in 1943, the firm is an industry leader in designing corporate office, healthcare, commercial, civic, science, education and sports facilities.
