Our services

Interaction and product design

Through a carefully constructed creative process, we develop insights into refined and exciting products, both tangible and digital, and hybrids thereof. We work on various forms of products covering websites, Internet of Things, exhibitions, and digital services - from prototyping to implementation.

  • Design direction
  • Concept development
  • User experience design (UI/UX)
  • Digital product exploration and development
  • Electronic and digital prototypes
  • Web front- and back-end development
Technology and user explorations

We address questions of technology from a human perspective. We investigate how technologies are understood in and through culture. For us the diversity of human cultures is a resource in technology and product development.

  • Technology exploration projects
  • Product invention workshops
  • Cultural probes
  • Strategic insights through user and cultural research
Visualisation and communication

We have developed a rich array of methods and techniques for novel visualisations of concepts and ideas. We use illustration, photography, and filmmaking actively in our work in order to generate new perspectives and uncover potential.

  • Technology visualisations
  • Photography and filmmaking
  • Exhibition design
  • Data visualisation

By virtue of sharing offices, we frequently collaborate with our crafty friends at Skrekkøgle and Bengler. Beyond the bounds of our office we draw on a vast network of expert practitioners in industrial design, 3D, film making, electronic and mechanical engineering.


Our work and research has been featured in a range of media outlets, a selection of which you can see here. Every now and then we also hold lectures and talks.
