Industrial Design Manifesto
Working at both ends of the design spectrum, from single pieces made together with craftsmen to mass produced objects developed in collaboration with manufacturers; the studio is not defined by a particular style, but rather by questioning objects while considering their context and cultural associations embedded in them. We take inspiration from everyday things, which by a simple twist, become something unexpected.
