My name is Nicholas and I founded Tuenne in 2011. We pronounce the name “2N” – The first letters of my dog's name North and my name Nicholas.
The idea of TUENNE was conceived while I was a student Majoring in Industrial Design at Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Additionally, while at RISD, I spent one year studying Glass Blowing, Mold-Making and Glass Casting. I have numerous years’ experience in Graphic Design, Product Design, Manufacturing Techniques, SolidWorks, Sketching, Concept Ideation etc. A formal education in Industrial Design has taught me how to research and solve problems with practical, simple and elegant mechanical solutions.
Taking my love of Design, Outdoor Sports, and Dogs, I created Tuenne. I am an avid Climber, Biker and Surfer and I have been enamored over the years by the aesthetic of the gear on offer in those sports and used it as inspiration in 2N's Pet Products!
Hope you like what you see!
