bdStudios is a design partnership that embraces diverse points of view with a common vision - To create products that serve the needs of our customers, inspire the market with new approaches and protect our world through responsible design. 

As founders we couldn’t be more different.  While we’re both trained in industrial design – One from California the other from Tehran - We come from completely different worlds.  Our different generations, different cultures, different influences and interests all combine to be a dynamic design team that brings a compassionate world view to our projects. 

We have over 40 years of combined multi-faceted experience in business and product development. Our projects are selected from both in-house inspiration and clients who seek to grow through innovative new product development.
