CO-CREATION

IXX invests in a network of creative professionals. If we feel we are inspired by one's ideas or work we sit together to discuss the possibilities for collaboration. We create chances. The label of each product contains the names of the (assistant-)designers that have contributed to the development of that specific product. Our logo IXX symbolizes the synergy between 'me' (I) and 'the people around me' (X and X)… "The whole is more than the sum of parts".

"Our designs are never the end of a thought process
but the beginning of a dialogue, an exchange of ideas."
