Designing with Biology. Innovating with Intention.

There’s a better way to make products. That starts with better materials. We empower product designers with knowledge and access to a new breed of performance ingredients and materials that expands the possibilities beyond commodity oils and drives towards a post petroleum future.

Where New Materials Take Flight

Our WING™ platform spans biotechnology, materials science, and fabrication (prototyping) all the way through to consumer engagement. This vertical integration enables cost effective, rapid iteration at commercially relevant scale across industries to create materials and products that can outperform the competition.
