Helium Concept was founded on 6 June1998 under the direction of Annick Schotte and Damien Bihr.

Since its creation Helium Concept has developed sensitive products that are close to the nature of their function. As Annick Schotte sees things, products should breathe simplicity and economy of means in relation to their use. Designed to be made in small series by Helium Concept, these products are analysed in family contexts before being released to the general public for everyday use. Besides reflecting a state of mind, they shape and take part in the feelings of users.

HeliumConcept® is the commercial brand name of products developed by NaosDesign sa.
