A design studio specialising in product design, and driven by the Bauhaus ideal that all functional items should be produced and made with artistic vision and highly honed skill. Established with a special focus on the cultural diversity and stories of the UAE.
Working within these two fields of thought, we create design experiences, whether large scale installations or outstanding products. We adhere to the spirit of curiosity and exploration; by discovering innovative functions and versatility to respond to a user’s need or to achieve its purpose more elegantly.
We work with tastemakers, forward thinking clients, and fellow professionals to produce amazing design outcomes and projects.
