Our design approach starts from relevant stories challenging the present flows to create the zeitgeist of tomorrow. This explains the drive for advanced technologies, embracing new materials and approach modern themes like lifecycles, digitalization and the growing demand of shared furniture. These narratives are critically approached by architects, ergonomically shaped by designers and carefully crafted by engineers.
