GOOD DESIGN REALIZES PRODUCT ADVANTAGES, MAKES THEM VISIBLE
AND CREATES ARGUMENTS FOR YOUR SALES STRATEGY

DESIGN IS A MARKETING INSTRUMENT

Addressing the customer requires a clear message, which can only be conveyed in competition with a convincing design. Good design realizes product advantages, makes them visible to the customer and creates arguments for the sales strategy. In order to use design successfully, it must be involved in all phases of product development and part of the corporate strategy.
In the first non-binding consultation, we discuss innovative ideas about your product and its environment. In order to achieve economic ratios of tool and part prices, we advise and discuss sensible manufacturing processes in this context. The resulting specifications form the basis for our offer in 3 phases. You have one contact person from the design, model building, construction, implementation of your new product to market launch with print materials, advertisements …

EXPERT-SERIES I PHYSIOMED ELEKTROMEDIZIN AG

SERIES OF MEDICAL DEVICES FOR STIMULATION CURRENT TREATMENT

“Stimulating!” was the accurate assessment by the doctor’s assistant when she saw the latest generation of medical equipment for stimulus – current treatment, ultrasound therapy and vacuum treatment. The different model types are defined by the design of the front panels and use one housing. All models can be stacked in the necessary combinations. The main connections are found at the front in an organically shaped plug cavity. All models were developed totally from design through to series production using ProEngineer, thus reducing development times and lowering costs.

WATER MASSAGE I AQUAJET S.R.L. ITALY

CONTROL UNIT FOR WATER MASSAGE

Continuous strings of pearls surge round the stressed – out manager, small water jets massage his tense back and make the workaholic forget about everyday life. The recreational program saved as “Iguaçu” has worked perfectly again … The receiver in the shape of a wave already provides a formal indication of the function of the product. Haptics, as well as ergonomics are defined almost automatically in the remote control. Both housings, made of recyclable, graded ABS shells, are naturally fully waterproof and can withstand any “underwater dive”.

SATELLITE RECEIVER I FTA LUXEMBOURG

RECEIVER FOR FTA Communication Technologies S.a.r.l.

A brief flicker and numerous figures with brown hair romped around on the screen. I wasn’t really familiar with the language or the broadcaster’s logo which appeared in the top right – hand corner. A large M – strange – but anyway, the satellite receiver by FTA definitely worked. Reduced to the main elements, all controls are concealed behind the concavely curved front with a display. The model variants range from a simple basic unit solely for reception through to a personal digital video recorder with an integrated hard disk for recording the required movies. Thanks to intelligent design, all models are produced using one tool.

OFFICE CONTAINER SYSTEM I TOPSTAR

OFFICE CONTAINER SYSTEM FOR TOPSTAR

We have redefined office mobility with the rotating containers from Topstar. The modular system enables you to individually configure your office container. No fastening devices or tools are required for their assembly. A tube of steel is placed in a base cross made of glass – fibre – reinforced polyamide with double rollers. This tube is locked by a cone. The rotating container for the particular application location is defined by “threading on” different elements. The larger tabletops and storage units compromise 240° semicircles. To open them, the storage units must merely be rotated until they are aligned with the unit above.

Product design from first sketches, models/pattern/prototypes, implementation through to series maturity in cooperation with the Topstar development department.

SADDLE COVER WITH BOX I TCHIBO

PROTECTIVE SADDLE COVER WITH STORAGE BOX

It’s summertime, it’s hot and you’ve parked your bicycle in front of the beer garden. A brief summertime thunderstorm roars over, it rains and the saddle gets wet. In earlier days, the old “household remedy” was the plastic bag stuffed beneath the saddle and pulled over it when necessary. In cooperation with Tchibo, we transferred the idea to a product. Today, Tchibo offers an elegant box with reflector and a saddle cover in it, which can be pulled over the saddle at any time and ready to use with a flexible cord.
