What we do

Objects

Trained as industrial designers we have a deep-rooted belief in rational function and sustainable aesthetics. Our methodical approach is focused on revealing the essence of each design challenge to allow us to create holistic and durable solutions. Fundamentally we look at design as an exercise in creating value. 

Spaces

Different ambitions occupy different spaces, but for us designing a successful interior or exhibition is all about getting the fundamentals right. Lights, acoustics and accommodating for the people and objects inhabiting the space. Often on these projects we collaborate with architects from our network.

How we do it

The most important work we do is the continuous communication with our clients, whether developing a new product, mapping out a strategy or simply giving advice.

Analysis

The aim is always to acquire a deep understanding of each project and each product. The identification of the exact needs and desires of all parties involved is key in order to define the essence of the project. In addition to this we also tries to lever our influence on clients to make decisions believed to be better for them, the product, the end user or the production process.

Idea Generation

For us communication is the most important tool in our studio and in our projects. Whether it is with producer, manufacturer, each other or anyone else with a relevant input, it provides inspiration and insight. Dialogues within us are, we would like to believe, of positive nature: nothing is labelled as wrong or right, in the end the goal is to always get closer to the essence. An inquisitive and open- minded process is of great value to us.

Materialization

Visualising the ideas, by giving them a material form, is an important communicative tool. Visualisation will often involve hand- drawn and digital sketches, model- making and mock- ups as well as 3D visualisation and detailed technical plans.

Production

The pre- production phase of the project calls for great attention to details. This implies the production of technical detailing, cost – and manufacturing analysis as well as packaging and life cycle analysis.
