Distil Union is a micro-collective of two industrial designers and one graphic designer who are having fun (and working hard) creating solutions to real-life problems. In our years as designers at Philips Electronics and Digital Lifestyle Outfitters, we worked on hundreds of products together, mainly Apple accessories. But design is just one teeny part of those companies… We've started our own design company that also develops and delivers the products that we want to see on the shelves. Huzzah!
We believe design is about creating a better user experienceFor our debut product, it just made sense to tackle the first not-so-great device interaction we face: waking up with our iPhones. To launch Distil Union, we completed a successful crowd-funding campaign on Kickstarter to raise the $50k necessary to produce an alarm dock for iPhone we named Snooze, along with Weave, the red fabric-covered Apple USB cable.
The products we love are easy to use. They make us smile with an unexpected functionality or mix of materials. They have integrity, and often there’s a compelling story behind them. We can't wait to bring our products to the market, and to share with you the stories behind them...
