We create objects, spaces and material concepts for and with our partners with the aspiration to create a better, more circular future. 

We approach our projects analytically through contextual research and combine aesthetical, ecological and functional aspects to create holistic and future-proof solutions.

We investigate the possibilities and boundaries of locally sourced materials and raw matter through co-creative processes and craft-oriented design – a combination of local traditional knowledge and innovative design methods. By navigating the tension between old and new,  vernacular design and highly innovative materials, novel solutions are created.

Through multi-disciplinary collaborations with material producers, scientists, designers, architects, innovators, academics, experts and craftspeople, the results of our investigations cover a broad range of typologies. This includes research, processes, materials, products, spaces, exhibitions and consultancy.
