Modern-twist is a result of founder Kat Nouri's ongoing search and passion for products with attention to that extra little something — detail. Their focus is on design that goes one step further to be tasteful and different while maintaining practicality and functionality. Modern-twist is a collaboration between Kat Nouri and an extremely talented group of independent designers (mostly from the San Francisco Bay Area) who share a passion for clean, minimalist design. The products are interesting to the touch, playful to the eye, and versatile in use. Drawing on the diverse culture of the San Francisco area, some of the designs have been inspired by traditional objects. The idea is to create products with modern means, using materials or objects in a new way, often combining industry with nature and giving the products an organic feel. Modern-Twist brings a clean, versatile aesthetic to the home. With a background in U.S. manufacturing, Nouri strives to manufacture Modern-twist products responsibly. U.S. and overseas manufacturers that produce Modern-twist products share their values in respecting the environment, workers and consumers. Modern-twist donates a percentage of the proceeds of all products to environmentally & socially conscious organizations.
