Company Background
designobject celebrates the impact design has on our lives by offering an online collection of smart, well-designed objects, printed matter, media and ideas. The designobject product line ranges from lifestyle accessories and furnishings to independent music, all produced by forward-looking designers and artists.

The company was founded in March of 2000 by Joshua Distler. Recognizing that both independent producers and the larger design audience suffer from fragmentation, designobject seeks to build community by augmenting its product offerings with an online forum of ideas created by and for design enthusiasts. Contents include essays (written and visual), interviews and experiments in animation and audio.

designobject, inc. is a privately-held California corporation with a corporate and shipping office in San Francisco, California.

designobect has recently launched version 1.0 of its website with over 30 objects. As the site continues to evolve we are looking to further our relationships with like-minded individuals and companies that produce, design or distribute inventive design. designobject seeks a wide range of international products and concepts to add to its portfolio.

The articles section of the website is a place for dialogue: a place to share views on design, to advance visual experimentation, and to divulge why the existence SUVs drives us to the brink. Here designobject seeks individuals or organizations who wish to contribute their unique voice.
