Identity, experience, utility — and sophistication.

Background knowledge and a clear stance are essential for good design. Good design, in turn, makes innovation tangible for users and ultimately raises a company’s profile.
At Tribecraft, we drive innovation by combining beauty with utility. Prettification won’t cut it.

Our design expertise:

  • User experience in real world- and digital environments

  • Industrial design for consumer goods, capital goods and transportation

  • 2D and 3D interaction design

  • Design for public, residential and work spaces

Design also matures during the sketching process. The tension between vagueness and distinct details helps designers to investigate their vision.
Our extensive collection of sample materials and processing technologies inspires us to find solutions with new aesthetic, technological and tactile qualities.

In addition to parametric CAD we program algorithmic designs for complex structures that cannot otherwise be modeled.
Our designs often involve textile parts. Sewing prototypes in-house speeds up development and ensures we have a sense for the fabric.
Design models are a preview of the finished product and aid decision making with clients during development. Shown: dual-flush actuators.

Our toolkit and skillset include context analysis (such as participant observation and customer journeys), generative modeling, Class A surfacing, ergonomics, materials and lighting simulation, digital and analog prototyping, a textile workshop, and a materials collection.
