This simple phrase is at the very core of everything we do. We believe that at the intersection of art + technology anything we can dream, we can make.
We are artists.
The best ideas are born of diverse thought - they connect the disconnected into something new and unexpected. We are Renaissance men and women who develop these ideas through interdisciplinary collaboration.
We seek to explore the evolutionary cycle between creativity and tools. The rapid development of technology brings new ideas and art that could not have existed before its inception. In turn, these new creative possibilities shape the development of technology. The evolutionary relationship is a cycle that will continue as long as we continue to explore our imagination.
One part creative studio.
One part machine shop.
In the creative studio we create unique handcrafted furniture and art. In the machine shop we craft small-batch high-tech tools for 21st century creators.
