Our design studio, founded in 1989, was at first mainly dedicated to the world of children, with creations of hundreds of toys, care products, tableware, educational tools, furniture…
To design for children requires a foolproof command of constraints such as safety standards, ergonomics. This demands also a wide cultural understanding and an open mind.
We are European, Parisian, and we enjoy to grow our tradition of creation to serve customers worldwide.
IDS Alain Pineau is now a renowned signature, that became a think tank accompanying its customers with a true vision of brand strategy.
To achieve this, we can extend our work to the Identity, Architecture and also Communication Design.
All that matters is to find the right codes for the best “story telling”. Regardless the kind of project, we have only one methodology: to listen, investigate, develop and finalise, for the best answer.
Since more than ten years now, we focus on projects with strong social and environmental values, such as for PlanToys, Classic World or Italtrike.
