Bjarke Ingels Group
The Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) is a team of architects, designers, builders and thinkers working across architecture, urbanism, research and development. BIG was founded in Copenhagen in 2005 by Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and expanded to New York City in 2010.
d line has actively sought to collaborate with Ingels and home automation studio Friday Labs and together we’ve pioneered a state-of-the-art smart lock system operated via mobile phone; strong, ergonomic and facing. Accompanied by a matching lever handle also designed by BIG, this new departure for d line is the first piece in a fuller collection by Bjarke Ingels.
Ingels himself has a strong international reputation for programmatically and technically innovative-yet-conscious buildings that respond to the evolution of contemporary life. For this work, Ingels has won multiple awards, and in 2016 was named one of TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World.
BIG is extraordinary and non-standard in both thinking and resolution and because of this, BIG’s projects very often call for products and fittings that share these same qualities.
