Fascinated by the dialogue between space and culture, Maysam Al-Nasser did her Masters thesis under the title "Space and Cultural transformation" in which she studied how space can leave its impression on a culture and even reshapes its customs and habits. She also examined the opposite affect which culture has on space, and how it could reflect itself on a place.

Maysam was born in 1982 in Bahrain and received a degree in Architecture from Edinburgh College of Art in 2007. Founded her design studio 1:1, dedicated for conceptual Architecture, Interior and Furniture design in 2012, and has since been interested in Art, Architecture and the space in-between..
