We're on a mission to simplify your everyday

Distil is an independent design studio founded in 2011 on a mission to simplify life by creating problem-solving products that are a delight to use.


A well-designed everyday object can help you focus on what matters instead of juggling all of those tiny, unnecessary things—because when a worry is off your mind, you can breathe a little easier.


Freedom from mundane frustrations makes life extraordinary


We believe that good design is good for you.

We’re fueled by enthusiastic crowd-funding (with 8,484 backers to be precise). In fact, lots of lifetime fans found us way back on Kickstarter after mumbling "heck, that's a good idea"...

We tackle design challenges by listening to what annoys you about your daily routines. Because, like you, we experience frustration and wasted time, too—and nothing makes us happier than hearing we've helped make your day a little bit easier.



Even something meticulously crafted and complex should ultimately provide you with an effortless, intuitive experience. Life is hectic enough—leave it to us to fuss over the details.



By questioning assumptions and putting ourselves in your shoes, we’re able to create objects that feel like they were made just for you. Because usually the answer isn’t more things. It’s better things.



We love making useful things that you love to use! Our favorite objects are those that not only look great, their functionality makes a noticeable, positive impact on our lives.

We've said 'we' quite enough...
