True innovative design utilizes unique relationships set in a contemporary context. This is accomplished not only by the use of new materials or techniques, but also by understanding the implicit relationships formed therein. Within these relationships are woven historical references, technological innovations, and philosophical trends that combine to make the project significant to our current times. Our team collaborates with the client to develop a vision fully explored through the use of samples and mock-ups. The goal is to co-create a unique, contemporary design that expresses our clients’ personal style.
