Founders

Chris Streng
Chris has always been interested in the relationship between objects & emotional response. He uses his understanding of our collective cultural lexicon to create opportunities for emotional reaction between person & object. Chris studied architecture & product design at Domus Academy in Milan, Italy, industrial design & interior architecture at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design, as well as anthropology & human geography at Marquette University.

 

Daniel Streng
Daniel believes that the goal of design is to solve human problems—questioning everything from the premise to the business model. Interested in disruptive aesthetics, Daniel is careful not to be disruptive to the extent that selfhood is lost. By testing the limits of objects’ identities, he discovers their key elements. Daniel studied art and design at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design.

 

Both founders sit on the School of the Art Institute of Chicago’s Design Council. Together, they have won numerous awards, including multiple IDEA awards, Good Design awards, Red Dot, & SPARK among others.

History

Chris Streng & Daniel Streng began their careers operating separate studios in the United States, and working with clients in Milan, Tokyo, & New York.

In the late '90s, the two came together to found Streng, which may seem like an obvious choice, but the brothers’ collaboration was actually accidental. Design event organizers began soliciting work from the two separately as well as a pair. Then clients began calling for the other brother. This happened so often that Chris & Daniel realized, “We’re perceived as a team—it makes sense to function as one.

Today, the brothers have assembled a dynamic group of designers whose impressive talents have grown the company to be the accomplished firm that it is. Streng partners with Fortune 500 companies, small businesses and start-ups to guide them through the process of creating disruptive products that resonate with consumers.

Locations

Working closely with our clients to provide the best service requires making ourselves available whenever and where ever needed. We are able to meet local needs best through regional locations that can service our relationships at any moment.

New York
Located in New York’s legendary Pencil Factory, creativity surrounds Streng New York—literally. We share the building with some of the nation’s top photographers, music engineers, bloggers, typographers, film makers and more. Whether watching a film shoot out our front windows, or passing an indie musician in the office hallway, inspiration is everywhere. A view of NYC’s breathtaking skyline is a nice perk, too.

Chicago
Our roots reside in the Midwest. Streng Chicago is located in the Fulton Street corridor west of Downtown, and has been in the well-known Albany Carroll Arts building since the late ‘90s—although we’ve had to acquire more space there to accommodate our growing team! Packed with artists & designers, the Chicago Tribune recently said that this Arts Building is “capable of producing more creative content in a few hours than you've experienced in your entire lifetime.”
