'NI:DLS

It's rooted in the territories in which we live, with their several alternatives.
It's a constant search for alternatives to modern materials.
It's a utopia; thinking to break free from the unbridled use of wood.
It’s a virtual shop, design side by side with the user.
It’s attention to a highly craft product.
Who has never sunk his own hand in a bed of pine needles? We consider them useless, to be disposed of. And it's from here that our studies on the material start.
What to do? "If it really worked we could easily redefine many fields of design."
From here comes the idea of a line of tailor-made skateboards, for a new mobility.
This is ‘NI:DLS.
