Initially conspired in Berlin some 15 years ago Swiss+German designers Roger Kellenberger and Stefan Ripperger founded Envary 2012 in Hong Kong. Rooted in various creative backgrounds the duo strives to blend their different influences into bold work, using an intuitive and sense-making approach to problem solving. With a multilateral in-house team plus a group of global creatives we unite expertise in product design, brand development, customer insights, user innovation, design for manufacturing and strategic design thinking for business or government.
We are a nimble band of designers & strategists taking on projects or whole ventures
Powered by its crafty workshop mentality our multi-disciplinary team designs ideas from vision to reality
Lined by an 18 feet ideation wall our studio space is all-around set up to take ideas into reality. Getting physical with tools, materials and mockups on two work benches, extensively using our material library or sketching designs on large ash wood tables is an essential part of our design process. Founders Roger and Stefan are always knee-deep involved. Driven by transformative and non-formularic concepts, we believe in outcomes designed iconically and with 21st century users in mind.
Our name is our credo: Diversely exploring a variation of views as in form, appearance or function, we take ideas into reality, yet diverge beyond the ordinary.
