Profile

Oato. was founded in 2012 by Pim Snijdoodt
and Stefan Tervoort just after both graduated
as Product Designers at the University for
the Arts Utrecht.

The company name ‘Oato.’ comes from the
sentence: One and the Other. It was built on
the idea that they’re two individuals with their
own qualities and personalities, blend
together to strengthen each other.
