Consisting of three symbiotic divisions, Sprouting Sprocket LLC is housed by two locations. The Carpinteria workshop houses Studio and Laser Chops happenings, while Hütte Hut takes root in its dedicated facility in Santa Barbara.
Both trained at Art Center College of Design, Brian and Katrina Manzo received Bachelor of Science degrees in transportation design and product design, respectively. After freelance consulting for car, footwear, and consumer electronics industries, the pair joined forces to form Sprouting Sprocket, LLC in 2011. Sharing an emphasis in holistic design and design strategy, their dynamic partnership fluxes through varying modalities and mediums manifested through a marriage of contemporary technologies and traditional methods.
