We are a Berlin-based, multi-disciplinary studio that develops divergent strategy and technology for regenerative systems.
We believe current modes of living, building and being are often at odds with our innate evolutionary purpose to thrive. This is why we seek out clients that prioritize meaningful growth, waste reduction, contributive value creation models, resilient infrastructure and the transition to carbon-free energy.
Our studio applies 15 years of expertise in immersive research, hands-on experimentation and high-fidelity prototyping to three fields we see enabling regenerative systems and driving positive change.
We work closely with our clients to understand their organization’s heritage, to challenge their existing strategic frameworks, identify new growth fields, and develop organizational scaffolds to support a circular and regenerative model.
- Immersive research activations
- Corporate narrative framing + modeling
- Divergent technology roadmaps
- Regenerative product + service portfolio development
We code intuitive and engaging software ecosystems that communicate with machines to increase precision, productivity, and engagement within our clients’ operations. For us, technology is the medium through which we enhance not only quality of work but quality of life.
- Empowering human-machine interfaces
- Digital simulations
- Data analytics frameworks
- Integrated MVP prototype development
- Embedded IoT ecosystems
- Full-stack SW development incl. ML, CV, AI algorithms
- UX design
Circular Robotics evolved as a combination of regenerative systems thinking and intelligent automation, to accelerate circular business practices and help our clients fulfill their Sustainable Development Goals.
Synthesizing creative, human-centered experience and deep-tech, we create industrial robots that repair, reduce material waste and advance recycling; and engaging machine installations that inspire consumers to actively opt in to sustainability.
- Sustainability impact assessment
- Service design for product reuse
- System programming + sequencing
- Automation feasibility studies
- Collaborative automation cells
- Semi-automated machines
- System deployment + certification
Being at the vanguard of shaping change means we always get to work with exciting clients but we're not always allowed to name-drop. What we can say is this: we collaborate with visionary institutions and businesses who are ready to think of their role within a broader value chain and lead their industry towards regenerative practices.

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
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
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
Sourcing for Circularity
As part of our summer research project, PCH product designer, Gianna, teamed up with textile engineer, Konstantin Utz, to explore existing textile material databases in order to simulate a perfect material sourcing journey for circularity.Read on Medium
