Lost Values

Our projects range from technology and design solutions that could be commercialised in the near-term to more far-reaching experiments that are intended to inspire and challenge assumptions about how we use technology and how we will deal with various forms of distance in the future.

Each of our projects can be viewed in different ways, and we don't want to constrain your imagination. Some are more complete than others. Some are more exploratory than others. Some are self-directed, others are driven by external briefs. It would be a mistake to interpret them as fixed visions for new products. Instead, consider them jumping-off points for discussion and further refinement towards something meaningful to you or your organisation.
