Our name is our mantra!
KISS keep.it.simple.stupid. is a design company that creates design in a simple, functional design language. We create beautiful, honest products which avoid excess. Both functional and aesthetic, and of affordable high quality.
The name KISS refers to a more convenient way of arranging our everyday lives and making life easier. Therefore, several of our designs are intended to have more than one function. We find great inspiration in designing intelligent, multi-function furniture that can be adapted to different needs – when it makes sense.
We love to create furniture that can function in any kind of home. Furniture that can be adapted to different spatial contexts and satisfy different functions in daily living. Functions that can change over time as new needs arise. All without compromising the simple design or the functional and aesthetically high value we strive for in our design.
KISS is an abbreviation of the design principle “Keep it simple, stupid”, which is a design philosophy derived from the American Navy of the 1960s. The philosophy has simple, ultra-functional design as its goal, and a requirement to avoid unnecessary complexity. Our name commits and defines our everyday living and products.
