We think about the design, the media and the user experience when we create interactive objects for installations, architectural design, connected objects and objects in motion. Our work is strongly influenced by forces of change, ergonomics, forms of motion, shapes and structures created by nature and by the social fabrics of the people which was created through time and is still present in our collective memories.
From fully working demos to prototypes and final products, we build interactive works of many different scales, with selected materials, cutting-edge processes and fully integrated electronics including power, communication systems. Fabrication experts, programmers and designers work together to create an unique eco-system of skills and resources for each of our client's project.
We design innovative virtual worlds that can change dynamically with sound, video cameras and other data coming from sensors located in the real world. We develop projects around the ideas of interactive animations, navigation inside a story, diverse ways of seeing the world and playfulness.
We work with large and small companies to consolidate what's already in place and to develop digital innovations for our clients.

We design the visual elements that will trigger our natural attraction to playfulness and complexity.
