Ibride established there publishing house in 1996, with the aim of cultivating our otherness, creating objects which make all the difference.
Since its creation, ibride has blossomed through a series of unique collections, where each and every object, the fruit of personal intuitions and convictions, embraces its own mythology.
The latter is in fact a contempory mythology, populated with images, encounters, travels, animals, and permeated with numerous references to the history of art itself. The concept of family ties, binding all our collections, is at the heart of our work, and is designed to instill a special emotional bond into the objects which surround us in our daily lives. Each new collection audaciously aims at asserting both these emotional bonds and our reputation as independent designers.

As practicing architects in Seattle, founders Seth and Jon began expanding their creativity through product design and art exhibitions. In 2007, the scribbles on the
back of a piece of paper led to what is now known as graypants. That year the company launched their flagship lighting series Scraplights, made entirely from
repurposed corrugated cardboard. Scraplights quickly became the foundation for the principals that graypants embraces to this day – responsible design, responsible materials, responsible production... and of course, having fun. In 2012, the Amsterdam studio was founded to become a hub for local European production and distribution to over fifty countries throughout the world. In the Netherlands, graypants partners with a social works program expanding their idea about responsible production and providing craft-based work to those who need it the most. Graypants continues to evolve its custom portfolio and has its product lines Scraplights, Steplights, Kerflights and Chronalights sold throughout the world.Graypants strives to make beautiful, award winning designs all over the world.
