Merging design craft with emerging technology
21st Century Designers
We are an international team of industrial + graphic designers, electronics + software engineers, filmmakers + architects. We work at the boundaries of technology to create transformative experiences in service of humanity, the planet and our future.
Real invention comes not only from discovering human needs and business opportunities, but also from exploring the unique strengths of raw materials. Tellart specializes in turning opaque, intangible technologies into materials for sketching, experimenting and prototyping.
Pioneering physical + digital experiences
Since our founding in 2000, we have been part of a core group of design pioneers defining the Internet of Things. We are known for bringing the digital beyond the screen, into the physical objects and spaces around us.
Embracing new technologies
Technology is rapidly becoming more complex and opaque. New technologies like machine intelligence, synthetic biology and programmable matter now promise to further disrupt our material culture. We are expanding our R&D into these new areas.
Taking the long view
Tellart is actively working with a council of experts including materials and data scientists, urbanists, futurists and policy makers to collectively anticipate the downstream systemic implications of decisions we make today.
We are optimistic that technology—when given form through responsible design—can lead to objects, environments and systems that widen our perceptions and connect us in new ways to nature and to each other.
