We are a Berlin-based, creative engineering studio for exploratory technology.

We develop daring concepts, models and technologies to help humans and machines work together more beautifully.
Whether building empowering AI systems, unlocking new R+D opportunities, designing immersive experiences, or reimagining robots as ambassadors for circularity: we help our clients use technology as a medium for meaningful change.

Services

Our studio applies 15 years of expertise within three core services we see enabling regenerative systems and driving positive change.

Exploration

Strategizing, ideating + thought-leadership

Future Vision Strategy
We dive deep into our clients’ organizational heritage to understand their existing strategic frameworks, identify new growth fields, and develop strategic scaffolds to support the transition to a more mutualistic industrial ecosystem.

Deep-tech Research

We identify emerging technical opportunities and conduct analyses based on scientific research, patents and industrial applications. We then run risk assessments, before defining the prototyping milestones.

Development

Concept, manufacturing + prototyping

Concept Design
Using sketches, renders, CAD, hands-on experimentation and industrial tools, we run design and prototyping sprints that challenge traditional technology perception and interaction and reimagine craftsmanship.

Iterative Engineering

We provide state-of-the-art machining and engineering to our clients and technical partners. With our clients, we define the path from design & functional PoCs to integrated prototypes and Minimum Viable Products.

Pre-Industrialization

Preparing implementation at scale for pre-industrialization.

MVP Fabrication
We develop data pipelines, AI algorithms, SW architectures and infrastructures for a wide range of outcomes: Industrial PLC, AI + ML applications, robotic OS, system architecture design, intuitive and empowering human machine interfaces.

Pre-scale Testing
We provide end-to-end development from MVP to pre-series. Our MVPs are tested on site, we perform FMEA before certification, staff training and handover to servicing and maintenance partners.
