Our Process //

1) IMAGINE IT (YOU NEED AN IDEA)

We introduce you to a unique product development process centered around materials.
We inspire new ideas by cross-pollinating and re-imagining materials and processes over a variety of industries (medical, industrial, consumer, aerospace, automotive).
We use the emotional experience of interacting with materials and the characteristics of those materials to provoke new ideas (experience-driven).
We bring to your table 20+ years of experience, a library of thousands of materials, a broad spectrum of key supplier relationships and collaborations with material & research resources across the globe.
