Goodbye messy makeup bag. See you never.
It all started when…
our founder was riding the Houston metro to her job Downtown. A graduate student at the time, making ends meet by working her way through school, she was constantly on-the-go. It was a professional office job at a corporate architecture firm, so the typical 'student grunge' look would not suffice. She always carried her makeup bag and a change of clothes with her. One day while riding the metro, she yet again had to dump her makeup bag out on the seat next to her to find the eyeliner, notoriously buried at the bottom. It occurred to her: there has to be a better way. A few sketches later, and Renzoe Box began to take shape.
But her dreams of becoming a renowned architect got in the way, and she never pursued her idea. Renzoe Box stayed locked away on the pages of her sketchbook for years.
Fast forward to 2017. Now a working professional with her own firm, she was still on-the-go and still digging through her makeup bag. It didn't make sense, and those sketches were still haunting her.
One day, she got to work. Those sketch turned into a digital model. That digital model into a few (dozen) 3D prints. The 3D prints into a prototype.
