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.
Our studio applies 15 years of expertise within three core services we see enabling regenerative systems and driving positive change.
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.
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.
Concept, manufacturing + prototyping
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.
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.
Preparing implementation at scale for pre-industrialization.
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.
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.
Being at the vanguard of shaping change allows us to work with visionary institutions and businesses who are ready to think of their role within a broader value chain and lead their respective industries towards regenerative practices.
Technically Speaking: Building B.I.L.L. interviews
PCH engingeers 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.

PCH on Instagram
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 ↗
Interview with PCH on B.I.L.L., our sneaker-repair bot for Nike
As B.I.L.L. has moved to its second location in Nike EHQ we chatted to two of our engineers about their work for the project.Read it on Medium ↗
What if 3D design was so intuitive, you could use simple language to express yourself?
PCH has always looked for new ways to harmonize technological capability with human imagination. In the first of our Eye on AI series we introduce BLANK AI, the AI-powered, 3D surfacing assistant we developed to do just that — and show its potential to rethink collaborative concept creation.Read on Medium ↗
PCH embarks on circular textile project with CISUTAC
PCH Innovations has joined the Circular and Sustainable Textile and Clothing (CISUTAC) consortium, a project committed to advancing repair and disassembly through automation.Read more about the project ↗
Graft book feature
We were happy to be asked to contribute our thoughts on new mobility to architecture, urban planning and design studio, Graft's latest book: Identity.Explore the book ↗
Innovating for Regeneration
Innovation has been PCH’s business since 2006 but also an internal studio pledge that we uphold — sometimes by design, sometimes by necessity. We took some time to reflect on how our innovation journey has changed not only what we make but what we make it for, and why.Read on Medium ↗
