The Brand started in early 1980's when Oliver left Art School and today the company is the industrial vehicle for the expression of his ideas and creativity through the Brand. Over the years the freedom of independence has allowed the Brand to swing in and out of various different fields of design such as the housewares, the clock and watch industry, and now electronics. With a focus on high quality and perhaps less on mass consumer volume, the Brand has a distinctive style and has attracted many famous and prestigious luxury hospitality brands as customers. The Brand has also been blessed by winning several design awards, including on two occasions the prestigious The GOOD DESIGN® Award which is the world’s most prestigious and oldest Design Awards program. Founded in Chicago in 1950 by architects Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray James and Edgar Kaufman. 
It is simple affordable luxurious modern intuitive design.
