We hold our relationships with our designers, vendors and clients most precious and place integrity before all. Our Mission is to facilitate the design, manufacture, sales and support of innovative, heirloom-quality design products through:

_locating all of our manufacture in California utilizing trusted and reputable craftspeople; over 90% of our manufacture is performed within 50 miles of our headquarters ­

_making sustainability the primary factor in all decisions and constantly looking to lessen our environmental footprint

_actively supporting our partnerships with our stakeholders (clients, designers, fabricators, representatives, showrooms and industry), valuing integrity at every turn

_giving back to our community and environment through volunteerism, carbon balancing and by support of other local and/or sustainability-minded businesses and non-profit organizations

_promoting the arts by commissioning new designs, creating internships and supporting local arts education and activities

_being a force for positive change

blankblank builds its reputation on creativity, craftsmanship and client service.  We believe that if we act consistent with these values, success will follow.  For us, success is a growing reputation due to positive relationships with our stakeholders and the ability to give back to our local and global community. We want to build a company that will, in fifty years, still be selling and servicing its original products, leading the industry in creativity and responsibility and benefiting from improvements to the environment and global economies that it helped to transform.  Click here to access our “Giving Back” page, or here to watch our video on sustainability.

“Authenticity is combined passion and work.”  — Leon Ransmeier, Industrial Designer

“Good design is innovative. Good design must be useful. Good design is aesthetic design. Good design makes a product understandable. Good design is honest. Good design is unobtrusive. Good design is long-lasting. Good design is consistent in every detail. Good design is environmentally friendly. And last but not least, good design is as little design as possible.  — Dieter Rams, Industrial Designer
