Added value design research
Setting comprehensive design requirements is essential for flawless development of a new product and a successful launch to the market.
In order to to retrieve the new product’s key success factors, we analyse the competitors’ products attributes, regarding forms and styling, function and ergonomics, construction and applied technology.

Form and function product design
We develop design concepts having in mind ergonomic principles and the ease of use, as well as the current design & styling trends.
Design attributes of the concepts are linked with the outcomes of the design research.
Technical constrains of the concepts are also discussed and linked to possible ways of production.
- Inspiration Mood Boards
- Design Sketches
- 3D CAD Form and Detailing
- Photorealistic Renderings
- 3D Printing Models
Design for manufacturing
Production feasibility is a main concern from the early stages of the project. In this phase we break down the chosen design concept geometry into parts and mechanisms and we form the necessary assemblies.
As production means are gradually defined, we contact sub-constructors for technical feedback and cost estimation.
Finally, we work closely with the client for the realization of prototypes.
