Ucon established their opening collection in the early summer of 2001 with the vision to develop a lifestyle brand anchored by creativity, quality tailoring, innovative appliqués and ethical production. With a passion for the work of talented artists and the design community around, the brand embraced collabora- tions to build a creative environment for the brand.
“Inspired by our friends, the city we call home and the places we choose to travel: The approach we take towards product design demonstrates a bias for simplicity and utility.” This journey is anchored by a sincere foundation for quality pieces that are constantly challenged by the theory that you are only as good as your last product."
Ucon Acrobatics creates goods designed to enable your journeys and exploration; bags and backpacks for men and women often with an additional functional aspect. Staying true to our core values during sev- enteen-plus years in business helped us tocreate a company we’re proud to run andwork for. We strongly believe in our idea of innovative, modern, functional and es- pecially minimalistic products for a wholenew generation of creative consumers. Ourfocus on making the best products possible with sophisticated fabrication, technical know-how and open-minded philosophy has brought us to where we are right now.
The brand’s studio in Berlin-Friedrichshain,an old cow stable which the team restored from ground, is ideally located within a district where the merging of art, progres- sive design, architecture and fashion is a long established tradition.
Appreciating the variety: a kaleidoscope ofcultures all in one place. It’s the little thingsthat others might pass by in the blink of an eye that keeps us inspired. Daily tasks are adventures to be lived, not problems to be solved. Ucon aspires to move easy. Balancing the everyday whilst challenging ideas to evolve. Never compromising on quality or values as individuals.
Balance and agility in everyday life.
