Projects Studio Awards

We are an Industrial Design Studio in NYC. We balance our strong background in ergonomics and our design sensibility to create unique and engaging designs that solve problems and convey feelings.

Our Story

In 2008 Manuel Saez founded manuel saez & partners. As the former design director and Humanscale, the world's largest designer and manufacturer of ergonomic products for the office, Saez used his understanding of the power of diversity and collaboration to bring together a collective of expert talent from around the world. This group covers all creative disciplines from research, strategy, design, engineering, and sourcing to graphics, brand development, user experience, and new media.

Today, we believe that balance is the key to success in life and design. Timeless and engaging brands and products result from a calculated balance between beauty and function (reason) in the context in which they will be used.

Our Vision

We see design as a powerful strategic tool that creates value.

Our Philosophy

We believe that great designs successfully balance both the emotional side- beauty, and the rational side- function, in the context in which they will be used.

Working Values


The state of being humble and unpretentious. One of the best predispositions to learn and teach, being humble allows taking and receiving feedback in an open manner. This encourages positive thinking, putting the best interests of the group first, and even personal growth. A healthy dose of humility always lets you put the overall good of the team first.


Straightforwardness in words and message. Clear, honest communication is crucial for personal and corporate growth. Using frank, respectful language speeds and focuses any communication. Directness is a virtue.


Optimists believe that people and events are inherently good and things will work out in the end. A positive attitude will always get positive results. Problems are opportunities.


An eagerness or strong desire to achieve and improve on past accomplishments. Ambition is about self-growth, self-development, self-expression, and self-improvement. Ambition provides the motivation, energy, and willingness to pursue goals. Without it, nothing will be accomplished.


Be accountable for a job well done. Each individual possesses the best expertise in evaluating their own performance. In order to succeed, they must take responsibility for things within their control.
