ABOUT

We are founded on the partnership between creative directors Nichole and Robin, forged at the highly acclaimed studio One & Co and deepened at HTC where they designed and shipped globally-recognized products.

We have a knack for distilling complex new technologies into iconic products — and a fundamental belief in the power of design.

Our ambition is to create new archetypes: products that stand the test of time.

OUR CULTURE

We’re nurturing a studio culture that values creativity, a variety of perspectives, and the hands-on humble work it takes to manifest something new in the world.

As a woman-led company, we’re striving to bring balance to our own business — and to the practice of industrial design at large. The products we create touch millions of lives and women must have a bigger impact on shaping them.

If you’re interested in working at level we’d love to hear from you.

NOT JUST CLIENTS. COLLABORATORS

We’re committed to the success of your product. We’d love for you to think of us as partners.

We invite you into our workshop, pulling back the curtain to help you understand the process and the key decisions along the way, bringing you into the story and thinking behind the design.

We share our knowledge and experience freely, guiding you through the complexities of bringing a new product into the world.
