OXO was founded in 1990 with a focus on universal design, which means that OXO products are made to be easy to use for a wide span of customers. For OXO, that means designing products for young and old, male and female, left- and right-handed, and those with special needs. Headquartered in New York, OXO is recognized globally by many prestigious institutions, including Harvard Business School and the Royal College of Arts, as an example of how establishing a well-executed universal design philosophy not only results in making products that are beneficial to customers, but also serves as a sensible business model. OXO products have won numerous design awards and are included in the permanent collections of many museums worldwide. OXO is dedicated to providing innovative consumer products that make everyday living easier.
