We’re a team of designers, enthusiastic about the opportunities that new technologies open up. We believe in design as the key to apply them in a meaningful way—it’s our toolkit to drive real innovation and bring ideas to life.
Boost was founded by Max Mahal, Lucas Rex and David Kaltenbach (f.l.t.r.) with backgrounds in interaction design, product design, and craftsmanship.
We initially set out to found a hardware startup with Shortcut in early 2017. We went through two accelerator programs and collaborated with market leader Ottobock to push things forward. After eight months we pivoted to focus on design services for other clients — and it’s been great. The work is exciting, often challenging and we get the opportunity to work with amazing people and companies.
Boost is our way to venture. We like all aspects of building a business. The studio is our vehicle to pursue our profession while staying independent.
