Established in 2008 with Benjamin Luddy and Makoto Mizutani, Scout Regalia is a Los Angeles based, multitasking design practice obsessed with the design and fabrication of space, furniture, products, and interiors. Scout Regalia can be translated to "humble ornament," an homage to finding the splendor in something simple, or celebrating the inherent design of everyday living.

"We're inspired by the outdoors, exploring new landscapes, road trips, mountains, the desert, the Pacific Ocean. Pretty much everything you can access within a few hours from Los Angeles. California is an incredible incubator for creativity." - Ben & Makoto
