Product of Your Environment is a Product Design and Ideas studio. The company is the brainchild of Rebecca Chitty, an MA graduate of Central St.Martins with a background in Illustration, Art Direction and Set Design. It launched in 2006 at Designersblock, London showcasing 3 products; the ‘JigsawJigsaw’, ‘Castles In The Sky’ tower-block-shaped sandcastle bucket and the ‘Exorcise Book’ that was immediately snapped up by ‘Colette’ in Paris.
What we can do for you
We help cultural institutions and brands create best-selling products and attract new audiences. The company has evolved from designing and developing their own-brand home and gift products, stocked in Tate Modern and the Design Museum amongst others, to specialising in creating bespoke product ranges for Museum and Gallery shops and licensing ideas to other companies to develop and sell worldwide. Our e-shop can help with gifts for all celebrations. We stock our own-brand home and gift products that cater for every occasion - even an Exorcism!
Using humour as a way to help people engage more thoughtfully with the products we use daily, we aim to make our interactions with them more meaningful, unexpected and fun. We subvert the meanings and roles of everyday objects to transform them into playful products that ‘speak’ to you and invite you to reassess your relationship with them.
It is important to us to create products that people will value and keep for a long time, rather than adding to the ‘throwaway culture’. Heritage and the bringing of historical places to life is also very important to us - from coal mines to Art Deco palaces - and we love to be involved in projects where we can contribute to this.
In everything we do we aim to ‘Make Everyday Funny’...
