Besides the obvious benefits to our local economy, employing home grown talent has other far deeper advantages. By keeping our design studio and woodworking shop under the same roof, we utilize an entirely holistic and collaborative approach to solving design problems. Our woodworkers have a strong relationship with the designers who lean so heavily on their expertise. We prototype and develop new ideas in house, together. The conversations often go in both directions and the learning is mutual. This feedback loop is used to constantly reinvigorate the whole design process, improving our products one project at a time.
