the neological institute

Language is a powerful tool, not only to express but also to inspire new meanings, future dynamics and alternate realities. Hence, on June 30th a first edition of our workshop/performance “The Neological Institute” was organised during DRS2016 (Design Research Society Conference) in Brighton (UK). The performance was inspired by a […]

Antwerp à la carte : on the future of food & the city

Within the context of the expo ‘Antwerp à la Carte’, featured on the 5th floor of MAS, Pantopicon sheds a light on the future of food and the city. Three future worlds were created and translated into a tangible experience by means of ‘what if’ questions and a selection of speculative design works. The impact of future food developments on the city were explored by means of an animated cityscape and a spoken narrative. […]

About us

Founded in 2004, with headquarters in Antwerp (Belgium) and a satellite studio in Toronto (Canada), Pantopicon features a multi-disciplinary and international team, working with clients in both the public and the private realm.
We are Pantopicon

We are a foresight and design studio. We enable people and organizations to see, design for and act upon the challenges which tomorrow might bring. Through speculative and analytical means we craft tools and processes, stories and strategies, products and experiences to stimulate debate, inspire action and catalyse change.

what clients ask

what we offer

We enrich the imagination
We use futures as a way to enlarge and enrich the imagination space, as a source to inspire better, more future-proof organizations, products, services and systems.
We spark debate
Through writings, lectures, objects and other home-brewed speculative experiences, we inspire people and organisations to debate future developments. We enable them to explore and jointly understand the challenges and new meanings these developments bring about.
We reframe challenges
We design and facilitate participatory processes to take our clients on a journey to explore and act upon future challenges. To do so we use homemade, design-flavored methods as well as more traditional approaches such as scenario-analysis and systems thinking. We help each client envision the kind of player they wish to be in tomorrow's markets and societies, as well as the pathways to achieve that position.
We catalyse change
We support communities and organisations to tackle challenges by co-envisioning new tomorrows. We help set the stage and create the conditions for co-designing innovative and engaging solutions to bring about positive change.
We make
We make the future tangible through narratives, objects and spaces as to transform perceptions and enable better ways to anticipate possible tomorrows today.
We train
We train people in the methods and techniques to explore and envision the future from within or across their organizations.
