Shifting from recovering and insuring accidents to proactive prevention, Generali, a global leader in the insurance industry, called on us to co-design their first-ever physical product: AirSafe, a smart device monitoring the air quality in homes. Leveraging the power of IoT systems, we helped bridge the digital and physical realms to keep families safe, adding a dedicated app with an intuitive interface that changes color depending on the air quality to monitor CO, smoke, particles, gas leaks and more. Functioning also as an ambient light, its design was inspired by the twisting shape of the Generali headquarters in Milan.
Prototyping was an integral part of the process, allowing the Generali team to evaluate every single step of the process carefully with a real, tangible object.
For our latest collaboration with Vimar, our team of product designers introduced the Elvox Voxie line of intercoms flaunting minimalist silhouettes, ergonomic controls and an elegant matt white finish. With an essential and geometric aesthetic, the final result lends itself to any situation, whether retrofitting an older building, detailing a new one, or even modernizing the office. Facilitating a simple and straightforward installation, Voxie was made to update or renovate existing systems with ease, eliminating the need for new junction boxes with a direct application on the wall or flush-mounted box.
As part of over three decades of partnering with the global technology leader ABB, we defined the design strategy for the award-winning ABB Emax 2. Compared to other switches on the market at the time, the attention to its design – both in terms of ease of use for the users of the product, and when it comes to applying design to build a brand in the sector – sets ABB Emax series apart from the rest, having made it a benchmark for the entire sector.
