Hulger is a London based innovation studio who conceive and co-design radical technology products. The name Hulger is inspired by Nicolas Roope’s grandfather. Hølger was a lawyer who lived contentedly with the same phone, the same car, the same old grandfather clock that ticked slowly and contentedly and the same leather arm-chair for decades. He was of a generation and culture that had resisted the wasteful churn of built-in-obsolescence. He bought lasting products that improved with age. He invested in beautiful technologies that didn’t generate a fear-of-missing-out with every subsequent release.
