we will come up with innovative product ideas. Due to our location in the world's manufacturing epicenter Shanghai, the selected ideas are

developed into product designs that are adjusted to the local factories for mass production in China.

Soon Design2Gather started to grow rapidly due to the unique focus on end-user experience. In the recent years Design2Gather became an award winning international product Design Company. Their design team is ready to help customers from the very start of a problem statement or design challenge up until mass production of the desired product.
