OUR APPROACH

  Combine style and responsibility

DDD guides the selection of its products, which are homeware items, gifts and everyday items, according to the values supported by the company. In addition to the essential requirement to possess a clean and timeless design, these important values are sustainability, quality, accountability, transparency and ethics.

We believe that current consumers are becoming more aware and are now ready to make more informed choices in their purchases. Although they are open to more responsible alternatives, they do not have the time to do extensive research to change their habits. We want to make it easier for them and give them access to a selection of design products based on sustainable and responsible values.

Here are the 3 rules and the 12 criteria that we use to guide our selection:

RULE 1

Design

The product has a refined and timeless aesthetic and does not belong to a fashion

or a trend. The product will last

in time.

RULe 2

Durable

The product has a high level of manufacturing quality as well as an exceptional guarantee. We advocate quality ratherthat quantity.
