Dare to create change in people’s lives? We help courageous companies to bring positive change with industrial design.

"Product design should contribute to a positive change in people's lives."

 
That is what we believe. Sometimes such a positive change may be small but yet important, like helping people to exercise more with an activity monitor, like we designed for Philips. Sometimes an intended change can be large, like helping people fight illness with a medical product.
 
We partner with courageous multinationals, mid-sized companies and start-ups to create and design such products. During our design process we continuously keep people in mind. We design, create mockups & prototypes, run user research and test interaction and ergonomics on real users, creating a long-lasting meaning for people.

 

 
 

New courageous steps in industrial design

You might feel the need to make new steps with your company and improve on industrial design, meaning and interaction.

Maybe you share our vision and want to create unexpected solutions and contribute to people's well being with long-lasting meaningful products.

We'd love to help you on this courageous enterprise with our team, our broad experience and wide range of skills. Just like the way we helped our clients Philips, Potok and Zeleritaz Sports to create activity monitors, a medical bio-inactivation air treatment system and patented inline skate wheels.

End-user perspective during design, engineering and prototyping

We believe it is interesting to partner with a design firm that is focused primarily on meaning and the end-user to balance all the other issues that are at stake during a product development project. We continue to challenge you and try to take the side of the end user during concept design, engineering, prototyping and iterations.

 

Design and engineering iterations that are worth the investment

Great industrial design, iterations, multiple prototypes and optimizations, ergonomic form testing, quality engineering and user testing come with a price. Bottom line is that good product design adds strategic value to your organization.

We believe it is possible to create sustainable positive solutions for end-users and make good money as well.



Design for sports
 

 

Product design, interaction design and in-house electronics design

We integrate product design with in-house electronics development, so that we can create the technical platform that makes interaction possible with users and makes products smart. It gives us direct influence on the way how buttons behave, how feedback is created, how sensors work and how fast software and processors react on human actions. This helps us to create the best user experience.

 
 

From design strategy to fully functional prototypes

We work both for start-ups, mid-sized companies and multinationals like Philips, Swisscom, TÜV and Decathlon.

Our services include the full package from design strategy to prototypes and in some cases manufacturing support.

During the design process we will always use mockups and prototypes to test user experience, run user research and test interaction and ergonomics.

Whether we design for health and medical applications, for consumers or professionals, we will always try to design products that will have a long lasting meaning for people.

Design for professionals

Our industrial design services

We create new unexpected solutions and quality industrial design for innovative start-ups, mid sized companies and multinationals like Philips, Swisscom, TÜV and Decathlon.
 
insight, design strategy, meaning, design approach

Design Strategy

We thoroughly study the core meaning, users, use applications and design styling for a new solution or product, using research and creative tools, leading to a solid design strategy document.
system design

System Design

Complex products require a solid system design with mechanical parts collaborating with multiple electronic components and embedded software.
concept design, sketching, new concepts

Concept Design

Hand sketching, creating quick mockups, testing on users and in our team, digital sketching and high quality automotive 3D surface modelling form the core of our concept designs.
interaction design, interface design

Interaction Design

Parallel with the concept design, our team creates interaction schemes, works on usability & ergonomics and designs interfaces.
product engineering, 3D CAD engineering, product development

Product Development

The newly created and visualized concept develops further using 3D CAD software. We create innovative technical solutions, filling in more details on components, materials and connections.
electronics design, pcb design, electronics development

Electronics Design

Our in-house electronics department designs and develops intelligent products with microprocessors, wireless communication, storage and embedded software, always with the focus on design, ergonomics and the end-user.
prototyping, testing, interations

Prototyping & Iterations

Prototyping and testing is a continuous process during a design project to check usability and user friendliness. When shape, functionality and interaction are good, the files are ready for final engineering optimizations at a manufacturing company.
medical design, medical engineering

Design for Health

We design and develop semi-medical and medical devices, personal health devices, products for elderly care and rehabilitation, including support in the field of medical certifications.

dare to create change in people's lives?

We want to use our industrial design expertise and product development skills to help people reach healthier, safer or better life conditions. That sounds pretty idealistic, and so it is.
 
Of course we also know about the dynamics of business and about the need to make money. We believe you and your company can do both: make good money and create products that contribute in one or another way to people's well being. Maybe by achieving more joy and better performance in sports, maybe with a sophisticated medical device, maybe with a smart home automation consumer product or a professional safety tool.
 
We partner with courageous companies, from start-up to multinational, and design products that contribute to a positive change in people's lives. We design both consumer products, medical devices, spaces and professional products. You find our products on markets in Europe, the USA and Asia. Our products are used in many different places like care homes, paper manufacturing facilities, sport courts, construction sites, hospitals and dentists practices.
