are designers, investigating new materials and methods for the quick modification of existing buildings and spaces. These modifications are used to “tune” buildings, converting previously inert surfaces into active surfaces that can meet new architectural criteria.

Our first functioning product, proSolve370e, is an example of our interest in new, complex topographies for smart surfaces. We seek new processes that can transcend the current reliance on tooling, and derive new forms for innovative technologies that occur on a molecular level, yet are significant enough to transform spaces.

elegant embellishments is a design bureau, interested in systems that respond to a new set of invisible criteria for physical space. Our 'prototypes for building' act as catalysts for the re-interpretation of architectural spaces.
