We are a creative engineering studio.
From vision to exploratory technology and experiences, our place between disciplines helps us serve clients looking not only for unique ideas but also the means to build and test them.
Whether building AI systems, unlocking new R+D opportunities, or reimagining robots as ambassadors for circularity: we help our clients use technology as a medium for regeneration, inspiration and empowerment.
Our studio applies 15 years of expertise to services that guide conscious, end-to-end technology development.
In our quest to make desirable future visions tangible today, we embark on a divergent journey with our clients. Unlike traditional foresight, our methods span different tools, philosophies and dimensions while remaining rooted in our client’s own DNA.

Technically Speaking: Building B.I.L.L. interviews
PCH engineers Florian and Christian give us a detailed glimpse into the process behind developing B.I.L.L.
As B.I.L.L. continues its journey from Niketown London to Nike’s European Headquarters in Hilversum, we sat down with two of the PCH engineers behind it, Florian Born and Christian Kokott, to talk about their unique processes, challenges and the tech that made it happen.

Our client work and studio experiments yield a lot of research, ideas, hard-working prototypes and hard-won wisdom that don't always fit on our website. So, we decided to give some of this work (and the magic in between), a common home on Instagram.Follow us ↗
Our business is in the development of technology and strategy towards a more planet-conscious future.
But creating the conditions for change rests as much on how we communicate as what we communicate.
Applying AI to Industry
Recently, our teams embarked on some research and development explorations to better gauge how AI can be applied to industry. The New Foundations series of articles on Medium is a collection of our experiments, learnings and insights.Read the articles ↗

A tech temple from 1880 to 1920, MaHalla today is a space where technology, art, music and spirituality converge. We invite all our friends, clients and partners to visit and slowly fill this space with their own ideas, and craft its journey with us.Visit the website here ↗
