For new technology to be successful, it must work in practice. Product development is based on a collection of methods and techniques. It is a field that focuses on the creation of new products and technical solutions. Product development is problem solving and optimization of limitations.

We work in the following areas:

  • Industrial design
  • Product development
  • Interaction design
  • Human-machine interaction.
  • Hygienic design


We combine knowledge, insight and methodology. We have a variety of different approaches that we use, depending on the character of the project. There are for example interviews, observations, case studies, use of panels, idea generation, morphology tables, conceptualization and detailing.
