SAWDUST & SOFTWARE
Origins is an experimental design and fabrication studio based out of Vancouver, BC.
On paper, we are trained architectural and graphic designers, artists, digital fabrication specialists, and entrepreneurs. At heart, we just want to get our hands dirty.
We operate at many scales, from furniture to built environment.
We are agile. Our multi-faceted approach to design and making gives us the ability to shift gears and disciplines quickly, focusing our attention on the projects and problems that really speak to us.
We believe that good design should be honest, humble, and useful above all else.
We believe the pieces we craft should be as beautiful to look at as they are fundamentally simple to use.
We believe that the techniques of tradition and technology should carry equal weight in contemporary design culture. Our expertise in digital fabrication technologies is always supplemented and subsequently grounded by a rigorous approach to our hands-on craft.
