Our vision and mission

With our innovative transformable structures, we want to fascinate and inspire you.

To achieve this, we combine creative engineering with the principles of sustainable development. We push structures to another level whilst continuing to strive for resource efficiency, and acting responsibly.

We work in a relationship of trust with all our stakeholders to design and make fast, foldable, quality spaces using wonderful, reversible deployment. This unique expertise is recognised worldwide.

Origin

The name Konligo is derived from kunligo, meaning ‘connection’ in Esperanto.

Our deployable objects, structures and spaces all rely on their connections, enabling them to demonstrate their mesmerizing kinetic motion, while contributing to a robust structural performance. The hinged connections give rise to the unique shapes and fascinating transformations we are widely recognized for. The arising spaces invite people to connect.

Our company is built around a team of highly motivated and creative founders, all sharing the same core values: Konligo is what drives and connects them.
