Think Tank Team

WHAT WE DO

We're very disruptive.

The Think Tank Team is passionate about inventing experience-centric future products and technologies. We aim for real-world impact by turning our disruptive concepts into products that connect objects, environments, information and people. Together we combine new designs, materials, technologies and approaches to create the products of tomorrow.

We draw inspiration from Henri Poincaré, who stated: “It is by logic that we prove, but by intuition we create.” We start our work by looking for problems and seeking inspiration in the needs of everyday life, then seek impact by creating prototypes and technologies that have a strong potential to become products. To that end, we re-imagine existing products, create new product classes, and explore new materials, technologies and affordances.
