Design
is One.

How we differ

— Timeless design

What we value most is design that doesn't follow trends. We are also convinced that design is universal. The same thought process shapes a chair, a house or a logo. That's why we work in an interdisciplinary way across all boundaries. Our strength lies in grasping the essentials, getting to the heart of things and then breaking new ground to realize them. We always try to listen to things in order to find the right form that will endure.

— Reverse branding

For us, branding is an in-depth process that begins with finding an identity and does not follow a prefabricated template. In contrast to the usual approach of creating the brand in a brainstorming session, we look for the identity that already exists. By listening and feeling our way in, we uncover the core of a brand without bending it or putting on a mask. It is often unexpected or invisible elements that ultimately give the identity strength. The result is an inner clarity about who you are, who you are for and what suits you and what does not.

— Paper Art

We see packaging not as a canvas on which to print the latest graphics, but as a functional design object and the most important point of contact with the brand. Invisible product characteristics become tangible through feel, material and form. Every detail is a statement of philosophy, attitude and self-image. We develop our own prototypes on site as well as small series for the high-end segment.
