Since then, we have worked with architects, urban designers and public authorities all over the world, designing solutions for their urban projects.

Inspired by your urban projects

 
 

Almost two decades ago, we started out working on industrial design consultancy projects such as custom urban furniture and signage design for architects and urban designers. After working with several high-profile clients, something interesting happened. People were contacting us to ask how they could buy the street furniture from these bespoke projects. They liked it much more than the other commercially available options. 

Our clients look for designs which help their urban projects stand out. Well-designed, user-friendly pieces, that are built to last. We knew that we needed to design a range of urban products which would appeal to them. Our aim? For each piece to add something extra – the finishing touch for urban spaces. With our objective clear, we created our own line of urban furniture, cycling solutions and playgrounds. 

It didn’t stop there. People kept looking to us to design the things they couldn’t find – a user-friendly two-tier bike rack; a smart cycle hub; imaginative playgrounds…the list went on. 

Award-winning design

 
 

The result was three product lines – including cycle parking, playgrounds and street furniture. Many have won design awards; all are inspired by the vision of our clients. With our Neko Design consultancy service we have designed the perfect urban elements for landscape architects, urban planners, local authorities, architects and more.

 

Neko’s designs can be found in many great projects of all sizes, where they add innovation, eco-design and a splash of colour.

Collaboration is key

 

 

With offices in Spain and Mexico, we work together on projects across borders as one team and one studio. Our team at Neko is made up of curious and creative professionals with different areas of expertise – and we’re passionate about improving our public spaces through design. We believe in the power of collaboration and our aim is to work with partners and distributors worldwide who share our vision and ambition.

Awards

We set ourselves an ambitious goal to win at least one international design award each year. Most recently we won an iF Design Award and a Red Dot Award, and our designs have won awards and been exhibited and published all over the world. These are some of our accolades:
