We believe in the five senses …
to stimulate our creativity…vision, touch, sound, taste, smell.
Our sensorial inputs come from the walks of everyday life…colours from a street poster, a tactile sensation of a corroded surface, sound from a video installation, the taste of an unknown spice, the smell of cut grass. Inputs which we often absorb subconsciously, effecting mood and reflections, constantly tuning our outlook and approach.
Our mission is to capture these sensorial attributes and translate them into our projects to trigger off exciting new emotions and reasoning…be it for small objects or large interiors, giving a new sense to our work.
