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 grow our tradition of creation to serve customers worldwide, with joy.

Now Pineau & le Porcher is a renowned signature, that became a think tank accompanying  its customers with a true vision of brand strategy. Because a great product is essential but it must also contribute to a global brand strategy that we define with our clients. 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 if it’s a small or a major project, we have only one methodology: to listen, investigate, develop and finalize, for the best answer.
