The Mission

We believe that living with less stuff, in less space, frees people to experience and enjoy more of life. 

We believe that the best life is one that is independent, by design.

IN|DE Labs


In the lab, we get down to business. We see a future where people reduce their housing costs dramatically by residing in fewer square feet that are better designed. We’re currently ideating highly functional, affordable, modular units that can connect like Legos to give their residents more or less space as life evolves.
