Environments for Vision and Innovation

“A studio is more or less artful to the degree that the artist who occupies it is committed to the continuing education in his or her formal discipline.” Wikipedia. The emphasis here should be put on the word committed. A true artist is committed to creativity, a never ending concept that furthers the artist’s discipline. The environment or studio contributes to the ability for the designer or artist to focus.

Impact’s offices embrace the concept of ‘Studio’ where product design and material experimentation are always in a state of innovative challenge. Our staff and designers work together to explore a proposed concept, a concept developed either by one of our designers or by a customer. We collaborate, we investigate, we build and evaluate prototypes; we are “artists, designers, woodworkers, metal sculptors, manufacturer, and more.” Our products have always been acknowledged for innovative design, usefulness, durability, and sustainability.

Dieter Rams, an acknowledged champion of design, has always professed "Less, but better" in his approach to the concept of design, whether the design is for a space or a product. His less, but better thinking turned office and industrial environments into studio environments and his product designs into sustainable products.
