1. What is your company’s product/service?
Product design studio and consultancy. We have worked on several self-initiated projects and collaborated with commercial clients from the automotive industry to develop and produce a series of ‘flat pack’ design accessories that utilise plastic hinging technology.

2. Where was it founded and where do you now have offices?
Founded in London, based in London and Geneva.

3. Number of employees at peak (and now)?
The company is composed of me and Max Frommeld. We met at the Royal College of Art in London where we both studied Design Products.

4. What was the hardest thing about building the company?
Finding clients.

5. Where do you see your company in three years?
We see ourselves potentially expanding but not necessarily. We enjoy having a few clients and producing quality and durable projects/work. 

6. Do any other Ecolint alumni work with you?
Nope.

7. In what ways (if any!) did your Ecolint education help you in founding a company?
The main advantage of my Ecolint education was the bilingual diploma enabling me to be fluent in both French and English and therefore avoiding all language barriers.
