Natural fiber composite

R & D in collaboration with professor Seth Stem (RISD) and BASF.

Exploring Possibilities

We produced the seat and back of Seth’s chair to demonstrate the properties of natural fiber composite and create a template to replace plastics. Durable, comfortable, and handsome, the end result helps push eco-friendly products into the market.

Designed from the ground up.

Our team modeled the geometry and machined the aluminum mold for the BASF Hemp Chair completely in-house. We created the initial manufacturing methods and systems for its production.

Material Report

Our hemp formula contains 72% natural fibers — 22% more than the average composite. Use of this could drastically reduce dependence on nonrenewable plastics.

Acrodur, BASF’s water-based acrylic resin, is free of formaldehyde and other hazardous chemicals. No VOC’s or noxious gases are released upon temperature shock.

Simplex Fire Alarm

With Simplex, we made the TrueAlert Es the most widely used fire alert system.

We partnered with Simplex, now SimplexGrinnell, a global company specializing in fire protection systems, to create the concept and direction for the TrueAlert Es, the most widely used fire alert system in the world.

Creating a visual language

Creating a visual language

Our team designed the concept and direction for Simplex Grinnell’s entire family of alert systems. We did this by creating a visual language for fire, smoke and security.

Using working prototypes, we met with focus groups to collect data about how people best respond to fire alert systems. The end result: an iconic fire alert system that’s used everywhere from Airports to the RISD Museum.

Making safety easy.

Working with SimplexGrinnell, we designed TrueAlert ES as a highly flexible, cost-effective alert system that’s easy to install, maintain and expand.  It provides better protection, more value and lower costs for engineers, installing contractors and building owners.  This makes it a great tool to advance safety and security of the places we live, work and play.
