We’re designers who join up the pieces. Physical and digital. 2D and 3D. Exterior and interior. Here’s a flavour of what we’ve done.
Land-e is an exercise in sustainable design, we asked: how could we treat this classic car in a similar way to architects renovating an historic building? We looked at how classic cars can be reinvented and retrofitted, extending their lifespan and making them just as useful today as they were when they first rolled off the production line.
The McLaren Speedtail is the ultimate hypercar from a legendary manufacturer. McLaren’s most aerodynamically efficient hypercar ever. For a multidisciplinary team like us, this was the perfect brief. We needed to create functional luggage that would feel like a natural extension of the brand, and fit perfectly into the car’s limited internal space.
The LEGO Foundation is committed to helping children learn through play. It works with partners all around the world to bring play to children in difficult circumstances. We needed to bring its mission and ethos to life within its head office campus in Denmark – and that meant getting playful.
Even classic brands need to keep pace. When Passoni, the legendary Italian masters of bespoke titanium frames, wanted to create a bike for the 21st century and beyond, they asked us to help them make that leap.
When TRL, the centre for innovation in transport, and Imperial College joined heads, it was a meeting of engineering minds. They came to us asking: ‘what could an autonomous urban public transport vehicle look like in the future?’ Together, we investigated the intricacies of passenger safety – developing an inclusive vehicle interior that was high form and high function.
This experimental project gave us the chance to lead the conversation around an interesting trend: nomadic living. Most evident in California, professionals have been opting for the freedom and affordability of life on the road. We asked, how could we design for this lifestyle?
The ARC is a grassroots community space in North London. It offers a café alongside events and classes, and houses a foodbank that feeds 300 people every week. They approached us wanting to make use of a large empty roof space to grow food. This forward-thinking rooftop urban farm would be a flagship designed to inspire similar initiatives tackling food resilience in the capital.
The Very Light Rail project is a potential game-changer: a new type of tram that’s much easier to integrate into city centres. Having worked on concepts for the design of the tram, we were invited to develop ideas for an interchange shelter.
The purpose of The LEGO Foundation is to open access to ‘Learning Through Play’. Working closely with the in-house team, we were asked to design a range of interactive tables – modules that would inspire imagination, exploration and discovery – all central to a child’s development.
The LEGO Foundation supports children across the world by providing play resources to schools in developing countries. Create With Anything enables children to use discarded materials in play. Our task was to prototype systems and activities for all ages and abilities.
IKEA is known as a brand for the home, but while we tend to think of furnishings, its commitment to ‘Life at Home’ goes further. Our task here was to open up ideas for how it could coherently expand its offer into services.
