On Their Design Philosophy
“We try to employ the principles of good design and craftsmanship in the pursuit of forms that are familiar yet provocative. We believe that a clearly expressed concept and element of surprise can compel someone to acquire an object, and that nuance and craft can compel them to keep it. We value imagination, the practical, the beautiful, the useful, and the strange.”
