The brand Teenage Engineering was founded in 2005 by Jesper Kouthoofd, Jens Rudberg, David Eriksson and later joined by David Möllerstedt, who previously headed the audio department at EA DICE. The brand not only drives a clear strategy focusing on high quality products, but also on outstanding design.
The merging of quality and design has also found its way in their brand and product collaborations.
In 2018, Teenage Engineering announced a new line of audio equipment products, Frekvens, in collaboration with IKEA. The modular system takes visual cues from Bauhaus design.
In 2019, Panic announced Playdate, a new handheld video game console designed in collaboration with Teenage Engineering. The device features a mechanical crank which is specifically credited to Teenage Engineering.
In 2021, Teenage Engineering announced that it will partner with the British-based Tech company, Nothing, to operate the design aesthetic of the brand and their products. Teenage Engineering later worked on the audio for the "ear - Nothing's first product.
