Materiality, locality, and process are part rumination, part meditation and part guiding principles for YHHS’ design. We want to work within our local area, using materials specific to place and process to inform design decisions. By doing this we hope to offer a unique, vernacular style as well as a new blueprint for sustainable brands. Essentially, necessity is the mother of invention and limiting ourselves to a handful of materials and colors has so far resulted in amazing textures, colors and forms we wouldn’t have reached for without focusing in.
