Hand Held Pro DPA 22

A design project: concentrating on concept-finding as a basis for a form development.  We focus on ergonomics, shaping and usability, based on an intelligent product concept.

Idea generation, sketching, form-giving, production technology…are main topics of the project. It is to develop a concept and to design a hand held object, dedicatet to a special user group – such as professional users.

Problem definition, briefing and a structured design process is part of the project – but focus is on the form giving process from idea through form exploration – from rough to detail.

The project by intention focusses in “classic” design skills in the field of form design. It’s dedicated to first years students in the bachelor program to strengthen the ability to deliver intelligent interactive design concepts including an industrial standard design level.

Machine Safety Projects DPA 23 DPA 24

In cooperation with an industrial client we explore the field of machine safety in the field of industrial production.

Interaction of the operator and the machine safety equipment.
 Machine safety, a necessary part in the production process helps to save lives and reduces injuries. But in many cases, the machine safety equipment reduces also the fast interaction of the operator and the machine. So many of the safety equipment is unwanted, not seen as necessary and fooled in the production process. Aim of the project is to find solutions, how this conflict can be reduced.The project will analyze a typical existing situation as basis for the conceptual design development. Supported by the client SCHMERSAL we will develop a visionary concept in the field of “safety in production machinery”

The ideal machine safety equipment would be invisible, without any restrictions to the operator and production process, only acting when necessary and free of costs. Real machine safety equipment features nothing of the ideal conditions. New concepts are needed.It’s about a new and different man machine interaction, automatic detection of human behaviour, optimized design of safety equipment and new technologies for safety equipment.
