We are driven by creating products that help ordinary people to reach healthier, safer and better life conditions.

Why clients choose us

Both multinationals, midsized companies and promising start-ups choose us as partner for their product design projects.
The reason for choosing us is different for every company, but mostly has to do with our vision on people-oriented and meaningful product design. The reasons we normally hear from our clients are:

human focused design

We are focused on creating meaningful products, that will be an improvement for the user in terms of experience, interaction and ergonomics. Our extensive experience in the field of usability, ergonomics and interaction design helps in achieving this.

quality design styling

We describe our design style as Northern European moderate minimalism. We combine this with highly skilled designers and Class A surface modelling to come to high quality product designs.

 
 

product development, prototyping and testing

We both design and develop products to fully functional prototypes. It does not stop with just a visualized concept.

We run 3D CAD modelling, simulations, build prototypes, run extensive tests, create 2d drawings with bills of materials and information about mould texture, surfaces that should not have sink marks and injection points, colors, etc.

And we have a large network of manufacturing partners that can help you further with final engineering, industrialization, certifications and start up of manufacturing.
 
 

international

We are used to run projects successfully in cooperation with international teams of our clients. On our side we speak English, native German and native Russian, which proved to be a large asset in many complex projects.

integration of electronics

We have many years of experience in design of interaction and integration of electronics in our products. If you already have an electronics development partner or you develop electronics in-house, our experience helps to communicate effectively with your team or partners.

ISPO Best Sport Product Gold Winner 2015 / 2016 for the Zeleritaz DWS Z1 Detachable inline skate wheels
The DWS Z1 is a sleek, streamlined, high-performance and eco-friendly wheel system that weighs less than 155 grams, yet it’s highly durable due to its unique aluminum rim. The wheel has unparalleled strength and speed. Additionally, it requires less material and time to replace. The elimination of a non-recyclable plastic core makes the process of changing wheels better for the environment and it’s revolutionizing the skating industry.

JAKA BENEDIK

Winner Consumer Voting ISPO COMMUNITY:
"The interchangeable rim/rubber concept is a perfect example for ecological engineering. It's also a great example for how to implement proven principles into the action sports industries. In addition, the user will carry less weight and spend less on the exchange of wheels."
