Outofstock is a design collective, born out of a fortuitous meeting in Stockholm, hence the name Outofstock. Gabriel Tan and Wendy Chua from Singapore, Gustavo Maggio from Argentina and Sebastián Alberdi from Spain met at Electrolux Design Lab 2005. They connected, kept in touch, and after a reunion a year later, decided to collaborate. This collaboration grew into an integrated studio offering interior and product design services and they have not looked back since.

In 2009, Outofstock was awarded 'Young designer of the year' by Elle Decoration magazine Spain. This accolade is succeeded by the launch of their Arbor desk, Hull table and the Glide easychair with international labels in the following year.
