Chris Hardy

Design Director

Chris, a mechanical engineer and industrial designer, believes nearly all problems are, at heart, design problems. His love for design and materials blossomed while he was lacing up bicycle racing wheels at a young age and continues today through pursuit of crafting beautiful home products that simplify, organize and beautify ones’ living experience.
