Industrial revolution brought people comfort and convenience. Overall, people start to experience an easier and pleasanter way of life. But, like everything which is stress less, it ended in boredom. All products surrounding us became uniform. No differences for the sake of big quantities’ efficiency.

And then came the information revolution. Now everybody wants to express himself. Customized products are now wanted. No more uniformity! We hate standard products and services. We like to put our money for things made for us, only for us. We want to feel free and show to everybody who we are.
