Both small and large companies choose us as partner for their product innovation projects because of the unique combination of people-oriented product design and interaction, directly linked to technological knowledge.
The most specific reasons we normally hear from our clients are:
1. human focused design
We design first of all for people. Our goal is always to design meaningful products, that mean an improvement for the user in terms of experience, interaction or ergonomics. We have extensive experience in the field of usability and ergonomics (including publications in the specialized “Journal of Ergonomics" in the Netherlands)
2. quality design styling
We deliver a high quality design, with a Northern European style, that we would describe as moderate minimalism and restraint, combined with meaningful solutions for the user.
3. integration of electronics
Because we have our own electronics department, we can integrate interaction and electronics into products quicker and easier, whether it's about consumer electronics, electronic products for care applications or professionals.
4. one-stop design & product development
Recognized high quality concept design and product engineering, both in 3d modelling and in 2d technical drawings with a high level of detail and knowledge (for example, we are working for the German TÜV Rheinland Group, Philips and the French multinational Decathlon)
We work for international companies as well and our design team consists of different nationalities. We are used to run projects successfully in cooperation with international teams of our clients. We speak english, german and russian at our office.
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.
Benedik-Design, Founder (SLV)
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."
