All of our products are designed by us, Steffen and Michiel. We design items for a market that still today is far too small. Once an idea has the Spek factor, it gets produced by social workshop. The current collections revolve around DIY barrel ageing and sweets with cocktail flavour.
WHAT IS OUR STORY?
As product designers, we are always working on the hunt for new cool products ideas to develop. After a couple of years of trying all sorts of things (chairs, lamps, bean bags), are ideas slowly grew towards the gifts market. Within this market, the niche of ‘gifts for him’ fits like a glove.
WHAT ARE OUR GOALS AND VALUES?
Our products are transparent. Quite literally you can see through most of our products, but also the production has to have no secrets whatsoever. Spek products are fresh and playful. They give you something unexpected, or you have to put some effort into the product in order to get a result. Spek = new. We only develop ideas and products that are new (to the world). Very important, Spek is low-tech. We don’t like power plugs, internet of things and datasheets.
WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT US?
Spek = new. Somewhat like inventors, we blend/remix ideas to create products that are truly new (to the world).
