it all began small

In 2009, as part of my master's thesis at the University of Helsinki, I created the Tick table leg system. For more than a year, I spent countless hours making miniature wire models to work out the Tick system.

production today

Our Ticks are manufactured by medium-sized and highly specialised companies in southern Germany using state-of-the-art CNC bending machines. The tubular parts made of permanently elastic steel are welded by hand, sanded and then given a weatherproof and environmentally friendly powder coating (except for the stainless steel variant). The packaging is plastic-free.

The Tick table system enables individual und sustainable furniture outside the mass market. It offers the possibility to get creative and play, be it with a plate from a carpenter, a cupboard door or an old board that is given new life. The flexible tick system turns to both long-lasting designer pieces and temporary furniture.
