We design products
at the interface of design, material and process technology.


Materials reach our senses in an immediate way. They arouse curiosity and challenge us to explore. In studies and experiments, we reveal new potentials and applications of materials and technologies. We design material and we design using material.

We develop products in the fields of living, office and accessories. Of particular importance to us in this context is not the particular form, but the design of typical features. Design is the shaping of principles and structures, content and contemporary forms.
