Our Experience

Our roll-call of past projects is unusual – they're not just design concepts, they resulted in highly successful products that are out there, being used.

What do we do differently?

Every successful new product design needs several important ingredients:

  • Innovative ideas – a different perspective breeds new insights
  • Context sensitivity – products that not only respect but delight
  • Fresh aesthetics – whether a design for now or to last down the years
  • Creative engineering – innovative approaches to technical challenges at every stage
  • Physiological awareness – achieving natural, predictable physical interactions

Each of the products that leave our stable contains these essential ingredients, and sets them apart from their competitors.
