About Knog:

Unboring things. This is our design philosophy. Whether it’s inventing tech for the outdoor market, or just Friday afternoon drinks, it’s never dull here. “Here” is usually Melbourne, Australia. But it’s also Sydney, San Fran, Plymouth, Bogota, Munich, Paris, Osaka…wherever we happen to be meeting other outdoorsy customers. Since 2002, we’ve been redefining the relationship between form and function. It’s not a zero sum game. In short, if something looks beautiful on the outside, its creators have probably given the same care and attention to its insides. Well, we have anyway.
