OXO

Headquartered in New York City’s historic Chelsea neighborhood, OXO (pronounced Ox-Oh) has been designing and manufacturing revolutionary home products for over 25 years. Founder Sam Farber chose the name because whether it’s depicted horizontal, vertical, upside down or backwards, it always reads “OXO”. The company was born in 1990 after Sam noticed his wife Betsey was struggling to hold and use an old-fashioned vegetable peeler due to her arthritis. Following extensive research, hundreds of prototypes and dozens of design iterations, the first 15 OXO Good Grips kitchen tools, including the now iconic peeler, were introduced. OXO’s thoughtful, “question everything” process and relentless attention to detail helps uncover the best solutions for life’s everyday tasks. Just like those original 15 kitchen utensils, everything they do is rooted in the philosophy of Universal Design–the idea that their products should be usable by as many people as possible all around the world. Today, they offer over 1,000 products across five brands and covering almost every area of the home, all created based on this principle.
