neo-utility was founded in 2009 by Kip Kotzen. Recognizing that there were great products that were not making their way to the American market, neo-utility began to forge relationships with brands from around the world. neo-utility began as both a sales agent and a distribution company, selling to design and museum shops across North America. with the addition of full online store at, all of these brands and products are now available to purchase in one place.
