On Their Design Philosophy
“Our work is influenced by many different elements but always seeks to strike the harmony between form and function. Foregoing the superfluous, we aim to find solutions within details that allow us to define the right form, informed by simplicity. Approaching our work in a pragmatic way allows to create singular objects that are at once useful and aesthetically surprising.”
On Scandinavian Design
“It is the heritage of a real tradition and design culture that seeks to provide simple and functional objects to as many people as possible. It’s about quality while reflecting and attention-to-detail, being at once minimalist and humble with great respect for each single material.”
