Since 1999 we develop products. clients are particularly manufacturers of serially fabricated consumer and investment goods who produce these manually or industrially. Especially items of every day use are in our focus.
We make great demands on our work, with the object to endow a product with an easy, understandable handling and an optimal function, as well as a distinctive and appealing look. highest quality of materials and production standards as well as sustainability are fundamental aspects.
during the development process we think about meanings, serviceableness and what will happen after the product's life cycle. these - amongst other - aspects run into into the design process.
curiosity and profound knowledge about materials and production methods are our substantial benefits. computer-aided processes as well as traditional manufacturing techniques are implied. here we can rely on long approved co-operation partners.
for us, looking back is as interesting as looking forward. we like to think out of the box, and query habits every now and then. our collaborations are based on openness and respect.
