Prototyping

In addition to sketches, illustrations or 3D renderings, we are able to provide on very short notice prototypes and even single production pieces for validation before the final industrial production phase.

Materials

From metals to fabrics, papers, leathers, plastics and recycled materials, we have a very wide choice of creative materials. We are in constant search of the newest and best materials and have a large sample library available in the studio. Our library include an extensive variety of cover fabrics, recycled and / or water-repellent, papers and leathers for packaging.
