  • Our aim was to produce a design that was visually striking and that maximized performance for the user. Because the foot was replacing something that was ergonomic and felt natural to use, i.e. a real foot, the design had to be unobtrusive and intuitive, giving the user back their ability to walk normally without the hassle from a hard to operate product. We are delighted that the resulting design has won this prestigious award.” The Red Dot design awards have been running since 1955 and are one of the biggest and most renowned design competitions in the world.

  • Our business depends on developing high performance technology for microscopy based applications and providing this to our customers both in the form of OEM modules and finished products. We started working with DesignEdge about 5 years ago and their involvement has transformed our business.

  • Design for us is as important as functionality. We manufacture premium end inkjet printers and want to produce products that are stylish and have a distinctive feel. Design is important to us but this isn’t the case industry wide. Many companies still see cutting out design as a way to cut costs. But with stylish products on the market this can only be to our advantage”

  • The requirements for an attractive looking and robust product even goes down to the inside of the unit. The unit is aesthetically pleasing but maintains its core functionality that fits into a wide variety of deployments. If customers look inside they are usually very impressed, every fine detail has been planned meticulously. If people go on tour of a car plant or if it appears on TV great design promotes a strong brand.” The applications are limitless and Ubisense is now looking to use the technology to help early stage dementia sufferers.

  • There is a relentless drive for ever smaller electronic products and storage technologies are responding to this call allowing product designers to work at smaller geometries. Designers need to attempt to differentiate these products at this smaller size. The company believes that the concept designs shown at CeBIT will inspire designers and manufacturers of next generation, smart mobile accessories. The new applications and products are limited only by the imagination of our manufacturing partners.”

  • We have made educational robots for 30 years, longer than any other company. With our latest Roamer the challenge was to bring our experience and creativity together within state-of-the art technology. In these situations the challenge is to ensure the design quality matches the vision. DesignEdge met that challenge going further, adding value to the concept with excellent detailed design. The devil is always in the detail and here they were exceptional, we are moulding some components to tolerances that moulders claimed impossible.”

  • Inca is an industry leader in the development and manufacture of inkjet printers for the printing industry. When developing the SpyderX platform, we recruited DesignEdge to utilize its in-depth design knowledge combined with its awareness of the print industry and high volume manufacturing; and its input was key to the platform’s success. Customers have since commented on how great the product looks and how the ergonomics of the machine maximize their productivity. Our business depends on cutting edge, innovative and top quality design and DesignEdge was the perfect partner to cooperate with!”
