Fig40 is an industrial design firm that collaborates with some of the world’s most progressive thinkers to make objects that matter. Our goal is to design objects that do good while doing well.
Our practice is structured to craft solutions that are approachable, neighbourly and elemental. We take a contextual approach to designing objects, integrating the entire product development spectrum from concept development to mechanical design, implementation, promotional support and product education. The result is work driven by a pragmatic idealism that embraces the greater good while remaining grounded in performance.
