_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

“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.
