Our studio was founded on the belief that it is our role, as designers, to challenge convention, to anticipate future problems and implement flexible solutions.
From aircraft interiors, airports, public transport and high speed trains to hotels and consumer products, our diverse portfolio enables us to draw from our experience across different sectors to deliver new innovations.
This unique way of thinking has enabled us to deliver many award-winning, industry-changing designs.
