Our Story


Products to Inspire

Every product has a story. A reason why a product looks the way it does from function and practicality to aesthetics. All our products are designed with the belief that everyday goods can be extraordinary. We strive to ensure the user is getting the most unique experience and to create a everyday item in a completely re-imagined way.

Meet the Designer

“As an industrial designer I want to show everyday products don’t have to look the way they do. It’s possible to have products take on different shapes and new experiences. I don’t want to limited to the conventional “how the way things are suppose to look and feel”. Lots of people have told me my designs look different and I take that as a compliment every time. Being different is what we strive to be.”

John Lioe is a industrial designer from Seattle, WA. Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest. John attended University of Washington and received his BA in Fine Arts. He attended Academy of Art University for his MFA in Industrial Design.
