design form-finding materialization fabrication project management exhibition design


I’ve been working with Veronika for more than 15 years, and over the course of this time she has become an invaluable asset to the production of art. Veronika is involved from the early design stages to outsourcing, fabrication, finding new ways of producing art and project management, until the pieces arrive at my studio, and even after, when it comes to exhibition design and display.

Veronika Schmid (owner-director Gill Schmid Design, formerly Impossible Productions Ink LLC) has been working closely with internationally renowned artists since 2001, facilitating the production and fabrication of high-end art pieces and sculptures. She works closely with each artist to understand their unique artistic style and sensibility.

She has amassed a vast knowledge of a multitude of fabrication processes, both in the digital and traditional realms, and has facilitated ground breaking innovations in the field of 3d printing (in 2008 producing the largest ever 3d printing sculptures at 3x3x3 meters), along with investigating and setting up innovative multistep processes, providing the most advanced digital 3d modeling and sculpting.

As an architect and designer she has always worked at the very cutting edge of ideas, having been exposed to a wide range of design/ architectural methodologies and approaches through her professional experience and teaching, but always with a deep understanding of traditional/ established and historical design issues. She has been teaching advanced graduate design courses at the most respected architectural universities, such as Columbia University, Harvard GSD, The Architectural Association and many others for more than 15 years.

Gill Schmid Design is recognized for its contemporary, elegant and innovative design sensibility, with a specialization in high-end luxury and one of a kind design solutions. With an expertise in digital fabrication and design, veronika schmid is very well versed in large scale fabrication and construction and has been working on a wide range of scales from miniature jewelry projects to medium and large scale sculptures, along with large scale architecture and construction.

Veronika has worked with many artists and fashion, jewelry & product designers over the past 15 years, and has built up an impressive network of international fabricators & engineers. Rather than fabrication in house, for each project she will find the best/ most appropriate fabricator for the project/ budget, and also coordinate various fabricators for multistep processes. Her project management skills guarantee delivery of the highest quality, from point of inception to delivery at the studio and postproduction by the artist, down to exhibition design and installation on site.
