Mercury Bureau
is a Toronto-based studio working across object, exhibition, and graphic design. Mercury Bureau’s work is founded in a love of the varied forms and materials of objects; the way we live with objects and the difference they make in our lives. These inspirations are used to develop new aesthetic and functional possibilities for meeting our everyday needs. Drawing from Krepakevich’s background in art and geology, Mercury Bureau creates focused, sculptural products that achieve complex results with the simplest means.

Biography
Studying geology in his undergraduate degree, Shane Krepakevich first started making objects as an artist. His skill set as a designer developed organically through nearly a decade of activity in the Canadian contemporary art scene, leading to work with Montreal-based lighting studio Lambert & Fils. Leaving Montreal for Toronto, Shane focused his talents in design by launching Mercury Bureau. His work as a designer is undeniably influenced by his practice as an artist. Shane is investigative at heart and uses this experimental drive to create individual solutions and expressions for Mercury Bureau.
