VISION

WHY "KAIRN" ?

"We are willing to orientate people on the innovation path"

Cairn \ˈkern\, nom masculin : Amas de pierres élevé par les explorateurs des régions polaires ou par les alpinistes, afin de marquer leur passage.

Cairn is the name of an amount of stones built by explorators to mark the path and create a landmark for the others and orientate people. Every hikers or mountaineers put their stone and contribute to build the cairn, beyond the storms. As mountain addicts, this name makes a lot of sense for us. We are willing to orientate people on the innovation path, and improve their life experience with objects.

PHILOSOPHY

KAIRN has been created by two buddies early 2017. Yes, it’s not that old.

We are not an umpteenth global design agency. We don't master every aspects of the process. We believe that everyone cannot do everything. We focus on what we do the best, because we love what we do.  We have a very contrasted work experience. We got the chance to integrate companies in France, Switzerland, Austria, USA, Spain, Andorra and Italy. We heard about the best practices. We are used to put filters such as engineering, economical or marketing, to make products viable. But we believe in a user driven process, added to expertise and passion to make the best products. We love to go away from our comfort zone, and explore what is the best way to reach the client's goal.

We find relentless inspiration from our surrounding environment. We are also curious and used to meet people or cultures, to see what's going on here or there. We strive to questionnate the status quo. WE GO BIG OR GO HOME.
