Hyper Studio

HYPER STUDIO is a Madrid-based creative studio focused on the design of immersive experiences that bridge the physical and virtual realms. It explores the relationship between individuals and their technological environments, whether through cursor movement on a screen or body movement in a physical space.

Founded in 2016 by designer and developer Cristóbal Baños and architect and cultural manager Diego Iglesias, the studio’s portfolio includes interactive spaces, dynamic identities, web platforms, digital strategies, information architectures, and curatorial work in digital art. Projects have been undertaken for both public and private institutions, such as the Academia de España in Rome, the Centro Cultural Medialab-Prado in Madrid, the City Council of Logroño, and the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London. Additionally, collaborations with international brands include Iberia, Swatch, and Sony Music.

Work from HYPER STUDIO has been exhibited at various venues, including MIRA.mov: Exploring Visual Languages at the MIRA Festival in IDEAL (Barcelona, 2023), Festival Lovisual (Logroño, 2021), Uncertainty at the Spanish Pavilion in the XVII Venice Architecture Biennale (Venice, 2021), Centro Cultural Cigarreras (Alicante, 2020), Madrid Design Festival (Madrid, 2020), Max Estrella Gallery (Madrid, 2019-2020), Casa Antillón x Casa Banchel (Madrid, 2019), Museu de Belles Arts de Castelló (Castellón, 2019), 4YFN Four Years From Now Congress (Barcelona, 2019), Pública 19 International Meetings of Cultural Management (Madrid, 2019), Swatch Creative Natives Festival (Madrid, 2018), Becoming at the Spanish Pavilion in the XVI Venice Architecture Biennale (Venice, 2018), OFF Program at ARCO Fair (Madrid, 2018), and Luna de Octubre Festival (Madrid, 2017), among others.

In 2019, HYPER STUDIO initiated MMMAD, the Urban Festival of Digital Art in Madrid, transforming the city into the international capital of digital art each year. Across its four editions, the festival has showcased the work of more than 250 artists from over 30 nationalities and collaborated with some of Madrid’s most significant cultural institutions, including Colección SOLO, Espacio Cultural Serrería Belga, Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Goethe-Institut Madrid, La Casa Encendida, Medialab Prado, TAI Escuela de Artes, and TBA21, among others.

In 2022, HYPER HOUSE was established as a creative space located in the Vista Alegre neighborhood of Madrid, with the aim of exploring the relationships between the physical and digital worlds. The space serves as a hub for emerging creative communities, fostering the exchange of ideas, concerns, and knowledge to strengthen Madrid’s cultural fabric and expand its reach beyond the local context.
