A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step —- Lao-Tzu, Tao Te Ching
Materials – We believe that a small thing can have a large impact. The things that surround us derive their properties from the smallest components and their interdependencies. That’s why we like to examine, unravel, take apart and create something new constructed out of the smallest elements we can find.
Changes – We believe that research leads to knowledge and innovation, a process that is neither linear nor random. Research needs to be both deep and broad, carried out by a constantly changing team in constantly changing locations. Inspiration is everywhere, but without changing yourself you will not see it.
Senses – Fundamentally all human beings communicate through their senses; they can hear, feel, touch, smell and see the world around them. We like to trigger your senses, not only sight but all of them. When you see our work, you will want to touch it, hold it and maybe even smell it when nobody is looking, that’s what we want to evoke …
Value – By using those material qualities in a logical but innovative way we upgrade common things to valuable objects that enhance our lives; functional objects that have very personal relationships with users.
