A world class network of skilled collaborators, craftspeople and manufacturers allows us to create holistic teams, that can be adapted to project specific challenges, resulting in an exciting, inspiring and successful design outcomes.
Each project begins with the drive to thoroughly understand the creative challenges facing our clients, partners or collaborators. It is this knowledge coupled with our expertise in delivering designs from concept to completion that equips us to create relevant and progressive solutions. We focus on solving problems and minimising compromise, creating solutions that surpass functional and aesthetic expectations, whilst ensuring relevance, manufacturability and efficiency.
We have successfully designed and developed a wide range of best selling products, a number of which have resulted in novel intellectual property, which has led to successful patent applications. Our approach is aided by broad experience in engaging with everything from proof of concept prototyping to high finish ergonomic studies and from photorealistic visualisations to the production of CAD files for manufacture.
