An industrial design agency for
movers, shakers & change-makers
It's time to do things differently. Time to rethink our products, our spaces, our experiences.
We work with people who challenge the norm to change behaviours and perceptions. People who embrace new technologies as enablers for better ways. People with a vision for building a sustainable, regenerative future.
People who believe design has the power to drive that change.
Our priorities aren't flexible...
Our industry has a lot to answer for. We're not interested in adding to that list. Every product needs a reason to exist.
We're about people
— products and experiences that enhance lives, promote well-being and build community.
We're about our planet
— new materials, manufacturing methods and business models that take responsibility for their environmental impact.
... but the way we work is
In the spirit of doing things differently, we don't operate like most studios. For starters, we don't have a studio at all.
Instead we're actively building a virtual collective, hand-picking talent across disciplines and around the world to pitch in when you need them.
Our team scales to meet the unique challenges of your project so you get exactly, and only, the people you need.
A few of the things we do
Whatever stage you're at with your idea, we can bring creativity, clarity and confidence to the process.
Holistic user experience
Design for manufacture
We prefer to see our "clients" as collaborators. Our best work happens when we get to work with people who care about the same things we do.
Size doesn't matter - we've worked with global brands, innovative start-ups and individual entrepreneurs. If you have a vision that will drive positive change, we want to help you make it a reality.
