De­sign dons

Transat­lantic duo with their tech fin­gers in many taste­ful pies

Australian T3 - - RADAR -

TIMEAGAINTO­don “in­ter­est­ing ”glass­esanD SQUINT lov­ingly at those ge­niuses of the de­sign world who toil to cre­ate beau­ti­ful prod­ucts we covet and, in some cases, own. This month, we’re giv­ing you two for the price of one with In­dus­trial Fa­cil­ity.

Lon­doner Sam Hecht and Cal­i­for­nian Kim Colin founded the de­sign stu­dio back in 2002 and have gone on to work with the likes of Ep­son, Whirlpool and Muji. Their phi­los­o­phy is to keep things sim­ple and rooted in cur­rent con­di­tions, think­ing about ex­actly how their de­signs will ac­tu­ally be used by peo­ple.

Not a novel ap­proach, sure, but a very ef­fec­tive one – and in their case, it goes for ev­ery­thing from fine fur­ni­ture to in­no­va­tive tech.
