The unique partnership between New York-based industrial designer Bradley Price and Toronto-based industrial designer Joel Yatscoff is based on a friendship. Their collaboration, which began when working together as interns at Karim Rashid Inc., has developed into a young and energetic business venture alongside their individual careers in product design, furniture design, and branding. Their mission is to contribute to the rebirth of a design culture in North America through innovative, intelligent design that is progressive and optimistic in outlook. NYTO seeks to conceive products that earn their right to exist because they reward both user and manufacturer alike. These ideals are built upon a solid intellectual foundation, encompassing a rational approach to problem solving, an understanding of manufacturing processes, and the power of brand.
