Tät-Tat, founded in 1994 near Zurich, produces playful design items that charm the eye and delight the mind. The husband and wife design team—Benedikt and Brigitta Martig-Imhof are former teachers who work hand in hand with social work programs and institutions throughout Switzerland and Germany, employing up to 300 special needs persons. Tät-Tat designs its activities around its workforce’s best traits, and their little mobiles and decorations are very much from the hands of some highly talented people.

Several thousand tons of electronic waste are dismantled at the facility annually, Tät-Tat has reimagined and repurposed this typically discarded material.
