Productinnovatie is gewenst om steeds betere producten te maken en daarmee markt te veroveren of te behouden. We helpen daarbij met creatieve, frisse concepten en hoge kwaliteit design, van idee tot productie.
Productinnovatie gaat om de concrete vernieuwing van een product. Sterke motivaties die tot productinnovatie leiden zijn onder andere het signaleren van een nieuwe markt of frustraties in de markt over slechte functionaliteit van een concurrerend product. Maar ook nieuwe inzichten, verbeterde ergonomische mogelijkheden of verduurzaming kunnen goede redenen zijn om uw producten te vernieuwen.
Proces van productinnovatie
Een succesvol proces van productinnovatie verloopt voor u in een aantal fasen:
Wij kunnen u helpen met productinnovatie
Of het nu gaat om het ontwerp van een eenvoudig product of een portfolio van complexe producten. Juist omdat bij ons het proces van industrieel ontwerp bestaat uit zowel design, product engineering en in-huis elektronica ontwikkeling. Dan hoeft u niet tussen partijen te zitten en bent u verzekerd van een goede afstemming tussen het industrieel ontwerp, elektronica en de interactie.
Our approach to product innovation
Why clients choose us
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 Electronics 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.
A selection of companies we work for:

"During my time at Bluelarix I experienced Andreas' creative thinking not only in his approach to design but also to business. His exceptional skill at managing projects and client relationships allowed Bluelarix to be an agile and dynamic design studio able to take on projects both large and small. I would not hesitate to recommend Andreas and Bluelarix for any project requiring creative design or engineering."
