Allect’s mission is to foster an unrivalled level of creativity, innovation and excellence, accelerating growth and ensuring the group’s success.

The Allect Design Group was founded to bring together some of the finest names in architecture, interior and product design, while maximising their ability to achieve excellence, and promoting their growth in new markets.

Our company name is derived from the Latin word ‘allecto’, meaning to ‘entice and allure’, a sentiment that resonates with all brands within our stable — the power to elicit an emotional response through the beauty and craft of discerning design.

Our multi-brand structure across design disciplines is as yet unseen in the industry; it will encourage synergy between brands, whilst ensuring they operate in an autonomous and responsive manner.
