Marquise Stillwell

Marquise Stillwell, the founder and principal of Openbox, created a company that represents a culmination of more than 20 years of experience in designing and implementing fresh models for businesses and cultural organizations. The Openbox vision is, above all, human-centered: focusing on improving the lives of people in the communities its clients serve, whether it is through a film project; extensive business design work; or its deep resources for design research and innovation.
 
Marquise also brings his passion for supporting diverse cultures and bringing about positive change to his many philanthropic and creative activities, from teaching with two Danish design schools: CIID in Copenhagen and the KaosPilot in Aarhus; to co-founding the magazine Deem Journal, focused on design and social practice; and also collaborating with his Openbox colleague Petter Ringbom on various films including Shield and Spear (2014) and The New Bauhaus (2019).

Marquise serves as a board member for the Lowline Underground Park, Stae, Artmatr, Urban Ocean Lab, and Pioneer Works. He is also a member of the High Line Advisory Committee.
