We offer a complete product range of Dental Chair, Defibrillator, Puma Phone, Software and LCD-TV set
A dental chair all of one piece. Trustworthy, ergonomical, hygienic and convincing patients, dentists and assistants alike. A piece of architecture for practices which has a calming and harmonious effect and abstains from fashion elements. Interface: The multi-touch surface, which has a reduced appearance, perfectly integrates into the light and pleasant design of the dental treatment unit. User interface design and product design form a holistic concept for a trusting dialogue between doctor and patient. The user interface design has two important functions: the procedures and the diagnosis become transparent for the patient, while the doctor profits from the precise and intuitive use of the user interface.
The Primedic™ defibrillator for professional use ensures easy operation and unrestricted functionality for mobile emergency and reanimation medicine. Its robust housing and integrated bags stand for reliability even under extreme conditions. The device is operated step by step via a display in an unmistakeable "lay mode". In order to exclude operating errors under great stress the buttons and icons on the display were revised and given a clearer design.
Messages powered by the sun: A power supply system is hardly necessary anymore. On fair days pure solar power is sufficient to communicate with this compact, casual smartphone. A solar cell integrated at the back of the device makes this possible – and is one of the special features, with which we equipped the mobile phone we created together with Kuhn Consult. The device is produced by Puma and Sagem. That is why the development of the product was closely connected with sportswear collections and lifestyle topics.
Die Software Vitoflow bietet ein automatisiertes Verfahren für den hydraulischen Abgleich. Falsche Einstellungen an Pumpe oder Heizkessel aber auch Bauliche Veränderungen können dazu führen, dass Heizkörper im Haus sehr stark unterschiedlich warm werden. Dies führt dann zu unter- oder überheizten Räumen und einem erhöhten Energieverbrauch. Durch den hydraulischen Abgleich kann dies behoben werden. Schritt für Schritt leitet es den Heizungsbauer durch den umfangreichen Prozess, spart damit wertvolle Arbeitszeit und ermöglicht auch ungeübten Heizungstechnikern die Durchführung. Nach Anschließen der nötigen Hardware an die Heizungsanlage läuft der Messvorgang und berechnet die optimalen Einstellwerte für Pumpe und Heizkennlinie. Die Ergebnisse werden auf Wunsch direkt in einem vorgefertigten Formular protokolliert oder in der Software gespeichert.
With an exceptionally clear design, reduced to horizontal lines, of a high and lasting quality with glass and polished aluminium. Individual with its exchangeable inlaid work. Magical and fascinating because of its form and material. A bestseller which has been awarded many times, among others with the iF Product Design Award and the red dot Design Award.
This sub laptop appears elegant and not at all technical with its extremely flat case and the combination of aluminium, chrome and piano lacquer case. The material, surface and design change the familiar type and turn a technical product into a personal accessory.
Loewe “Reference 52” fascinates with its straightforward design, material and workmanship that is second to none. Despite an outstandingly narrow profile, no compromises are nevertheless made when it comes to the extensive range of functions. You do not require any additional equipment such as a receiver or recorder: the integrated receivers for DVB-T -C and DVB-S including HDTV reception as well as the installed hard disk recorder (500 GB) mean that everything is on board to guarantee outstanding TV comfort. Not only the Loewe picture optimization function “Image+”, but above all the 200 Hz technology guarantees brilliant and crystal clear pictures.
Noticeably facilitating. Highest demands on safety and comfort in the bathroom are being fulfilled, but also those on a fresh and modern aesthetics – far beyond conventional design for the handecapped. Phoenix Design has developed the sanitary system 815 for Hewi, market leader of barrier-free system solutions. In doing so, we have proven that a design approach dedicated to ethics and attitude may overcome not only physical but also social barriers. The sanitary system 815 follows the basic tenets of classic HEWI brand design: a formal language based on basic geometrical forms with minimalist use of materials. The discerning design consciously does not differentiate between people with or without handicap, thus overcoming widespread social discrimination in and by design. In contrast, functionality goes the extra mile to allow users to lead their life as independently as possible. A large selection of functional sanitary accessories for wash stand, WC and shower can be complemented by comfort elements like stools or a wash stand accommodating a wheelchair. Comfort, care and barrier-free usability thus turn into a matter of course – noticeably facilitating the users’ everday lives.
A product’s success mainly depends on three factors: It has to stand out from the wealth of competing products, it has to please and visualise a use relevant for the customer. Raindance E 150 combines all these factors and thus has immediately become a bestseller.
The Hansgrohe Raindance Select hand shower impresses with its clear design language. The flat, round showerhead measuring 150 mm in diameter and fashioned in brilliant chrome merges seamlessly with the ergonomic, comfortable grip. The principle of the integrated design is carried through to the intuitive and easy operation of the jet selector. The user can switch between the different types of jets using EasyClick, a key integrated into the overall shape. From a voluminous rain jet right through to a 5-jet massage stream, the hand spray offers comfortable shower pleasure.
The design of the new Kobold VR200 vacuum robot was developed in close cooperation with the Vorwerk design department. Clarity and coherence distinguish the new Vorwerk design language. The powerful silver and the robust anthracite colours emphasize technological pre-eminence, while the classic white symbolises freshness and cleanness. The striking outline of the top surface mediates between the external shape and the all-around laser scanner. The Vorwerk colour scheme allows for intuitive user operation. With its D-shape and a lateral brush, this agile vacuum robot delivers a perfect vacuuming result down to the last corner. The robot orients itself in a room via laser scanner and moves across the floor systematically. Rotating brushes as well as a low-noise and maintenance free engine achieve an efficient cleaning result. Longevity in terms of shape and function.
Classics mostly begin with a revolution. Caro, too. A washstand, 140 cm wide and level as well as a small basin and a generous shelf. Architectonically straightforward on the outside, the basin flowing and gently formed. The result: even after 18 years still in- creasing numbers of items. The moral responsibility for the environment has been taken into account here.
The brand defines the scope. For Phoenix Design, the human being and the brand are the guiding principles for design. For the Signature Series by Ronbow – a series specifically targeted at the European market – we have developed seven washstand series. A soft and unobtrusive design which still is typical for the brand defines their unique character. Clear and poetic in their form, harmonious and organic in their transitions: that’s how the individual lines are a real enrichment for the modern bathroom of today and tomorrow. This is a magical symbiosis of comfort, craftsmanship and fascinating complexity: no two pieces are alike -- luxury in a new format. Reduced and lively at the same time, consistently functional and all with the user in mind. High-quality materials, finish and aesthetics make for a culture of beauty, independent of the times.
With regards to performance and perfection, the new SLR lenses from Carl Zeiss push the limits of technical feasibility. They are based on a holistic design strategy. The lens shade, usually an accessory, has been seamlessly integrated into the lens. Luminous yellow labeling, known from the professional cine world, facilitates reading in the dark; the window scale focuses the view on the just needed relevant information. The all-metal frame ensures high stability; rubber setting rings enable precise manual operation. The flush, fine satin-finished surfaces allow users to experience the precision inside.
The Metropol Classic series of mixers by hansgrohe is a modern interpretation of the classic bathroom style: its reduced design featuring classic elements creates a modern elegance for the contemporary bathroom. Metropol Classic reflects the core values of classic even in modern architecture and interior design. Its look comes with golden accents at base, grip, and jet nozzle. Matching the elegant ambience, the design combines precise edges with brilliant surfaces. Softly undulating shapes expand to form the characteristic, rectangular and opulently accented base. The innovative EcoSmart technology reduces water throughput.
Typically unique and differentiating. For SHAPES (a distributor of Scandinavian design), Phoenix Design has designed the luminaire series SUMMERA. The suspended luminaire “SUMMERA by Phoenix Design” sums up European design culture – playfully simple: clear shapes, serene colours, uncomplicated functions. The reduced and clear design language with its sophisticated heritage look and feel is reminiscent of Bauhaus, being the archetype of an industrial luminaire of former times. Thanks to its flexible colour concept, from cable to canopy, SUMMERA can be combined to match a wide range of interiors. Innovative: the very easy assembly – the magnetic docking principle at the canopy allows for quickly exchanging the luminaire shade. The luminaire can be arranged as a single object as well as in a group. Varnishing in CMF trend colours like rose and gold can be combined with silver, white and black.
Bat - Mobility in Darkness. The night, a short time frame rife with opposites. Filled with darkness and mysticism, but also with beauty and fascination when we fill it with light. It seems as if we human beings feel the urge more and more frequently to be active in this precise time frame and to enjoy the silence of the night. We want to be out and about as individuals and discover our surroundings while feeling safe and self-confident at all times. The Bat concept is a flying light with accompanies you wherever you are and which shows you the way. It's next to you when you go jogging, it tracks you on the ski slope or sees you safely home. Bat is small and compact when it is transported. Unfolded, it is agile and creates a lighting atmosphere where otherwise none would exist. Bat is intelligent, tracks its environment and is able to react to you and your gestures. Now there is a new kind of interaction: the interaction between human being and mobile light.

The bar stool series KINETICis5, consisting of bar stool, leaning aid and stand-up table, is a lightweight group of furniture which can be re-positioned in new constellations again and again, especially for spontaneous team sessions and informal talks. The series is height-adjustable, foldable and stackable.
Integration into the architecture, absolute clarity with regard to its operation and a uniform design inside as well as outside are the characteristics of this door station for objects up to 60 living units. Although the door station is secured against vandals and meets the requirements of protection class IP 45, it has a fine, high-quality appearance.
Reduced to the essentials. The point about glass shower cabins is that you do not see them. Fittings basically only interfere with the visual transparency. Not so in the case of the PURE hinges designed by Phoenix Design for HÜPPE. Focussing on formal and functional clarity, we managed to avoid all compromises and develop a design that’s really reduced to the essentials – puristic to the point of invisibility. Just launched on the market and already honoured by numerous design awards – that’s already a clear sign of the uncompromising aesthetical quality of the hinges we have designed for the frameless and partly framed glass shower cabins of the “HÜPPE Enjoy PURE” series. The flush-fitting interior surfaces follow the clear line, facilitating cleaning. And the mechanism allowing lifting and lowering by 5 mm assures a satisfyingly close door fit. It’s the details that provide perfect bathing comfort.
The recipe for success of this fitting lies in strategy. A lot of (high-quality, functional) design for little money. Minimalist on the one hand but also characteristic with exciting combinations of dynamic slopes and a horizontal pin handle on the other hand.
HÜPPE Xtensa pure – Transparency elegantly guided. The walk-in idea combined anew with innovative sliding door technology. Phoenix Design perfectly connects the benefits of a comfortable access with added safeguard of a sliding door model into a new product generation, the comfort-walk-in. The highly transparent sliding door disappears almost completely behind the fixed segment of HÜPPE Xtensa pure. By omitting the usual upper guide rail of a sliding door, no sliding door has ever been as transparent as this series which still provides extensive splash protection. Innovation for the bathroom.
Open for exchange. Bathroom ceramics and fixtures converge. And two strong brands do the same: Phoenix Design has designed the series PuraVida, made by both Duravit and Hansgrohe, comprising more than 50 individual products. In doing so, we have brought together two long-standing Phoenix Design clients and leading bathroom suppliers – and we fulfil the need for a consistent offer of elements matched to each other. PuraVida represents a new, lively and free handling of forms – a sensual play with contrasts between surfaces and flowing volumes, white and chrome, even a bi-material look: organically shaped, white varnished undersides create the appearance of the faucet literally growing out of the ceramic. While safeguarding the independent brand typology of both manufacturers, bathroom ceramics and fixtures enter into a clompetely novel symbiosis. Reduced and alive at the same time, consistently functional, entirely in the interest of the user.
Comfort is more than just convenience. With P3 Comforts, Phoenix Design has given comfort a modern slant and reinterpreted the original meaning of the French “conforter” (to strengthen). The soft overall form and gently rounded corners bring a touch of calm and order to the bathroom. The narrow design of the surround introduces an additional lightness that combines with the large radii to present a rimless look and maximize the interior. The interplay of the different levels is an all-pervasive feature of the range: separating the wet and dry areas further by raising the tap platform produces a practical flat shelf surface. iF Design Award GOLD Jury-Statement: The subtle, soft design of this bathroom line convinced us: the rounded corners, the slight inclination of the bath and the hidden plughole are elegantly solved details subtly accommodating the user’s demand for well-being in the bathroom. The range is a good example for minimalistic design paired with a consistent use of material.
We surprise and touch – with aesthetic innovations that make sense. The AXOR ShowerHeaven 1200 unites purist design with top engineering. Different jet types provide a luxurious shower experience: the unique PowderRain jet, the large-area soft Rain jet, and a relaxing, meditative mono jet integrated into one head shower. At the push of a button, the individually adjustable wings will open up that have PowderRain sprinkle one’s entire body from the side, while the head area may be excepted – a pure 3D wellness experience. Integrated ambience lighting elements with state-of-the-art LED technology illuminate the shower while being energetically efficient. The warming light colour is particularly important for achieving a sense of well-being, presenting not only the shower but the people in it in their best light.
HÜPPE Design pure – strikingly straight-lined. The partially framed swing door series combines a reduced purist design with high quality and flexibility. The profiles designed by Phoenix Design impress with clear-cut and yet filigree styled lines. A highlight is the striking door handle optimally matched to the product and haptically impressive. Functionality combined with well-thought-out features for individual design: 6 mm safety glass, model diversity, optional Anti-Plaque, a host of decors and sizes, bi-color design, in- outwards opening, optional barrier-free installation. For achievement-oriented customers who value style and design.
Montreux authentically links the age of the Belle Epoque with modern technology. The subtle interplay of decorative elements and harmonious proportions holds the great attraction of this fine, traditional range of fittings and the matching accessories.
To, fro, down, up: marvels of interaction Phoenix Design has been designing products since 1987: products to touch and switch on, to open and look through, to understand and to be amazed by, to act and interact with... It was never about the product alone, but always about its relation to the user. To and fro. An interplay. We call it: designing interaction. Since 1988, Phoenix Design has always been asking their interns for the same parting gift: „Design a yo-yo!“ Design interaction: not only between yo-yo and wrist. It also involves exchange with freshmen and experienced designers who can learn from each other. To, fro, to; also down and up; steady on the move, different, new.
Metris E, the range of fittings, combines what seem to be contrasts at first: a formal basic architecture and an elegant outline. Five models with different heights redefine the available space between the fitting and the washbasin – the so-called ComfortZone – to meet different demands.
ypically unique and differentiating. Phoenix Design creates recognition value and ensures design differentiation. For the Signature Series by Ronbow – a series specifically targeted at the European market – we have developed the bathroom furniture series “Wide”. The bathroom of today and tomorrow transforms into a room to live in, a place for relaxation. Natural, honest materials featuring comfortable, individual and artisanal elements define the spatial architecture. Reduced and lively at the same time while consistently functional, and all with the user in mind. Subtle luxury – a contemporary form offering more joie de vivre.
User first. The Hybrid Air conditioner made by Midea not only supports the room climate but also air quality. Not only the users’ well-being but also their health is being promoted by this product. In order to keep room quality constant at all times, an integrated filter cleans both the prevalent room air and inflowing outside air. Moreover, this air conditioner features an innovative self-cleaning function. Thanks to UV light and integrated brushes, the filters get cleaned and disinfected regularly. The light sign which is visible during cleaning through the perforated plastic front allows the users to sensually experience this technology, thus supporting the increasing need for safety and security of the people in the room. In its basic character, the language of forms is convincing thanks to its discreet appearance, thus perfectly blending into the living environment. The clear, natural and likable appearance underlines the role of the device as a reliable partner within the user’s personal private sphere.
Fascinating like an encased gemstone for modern urban settings. Timeless design, exuding a magical atmosphere in the dark, efficiency and variability were the key ideas behind this product concept. The result: the new Astro range of luminaires. The numerous configuration options provide convincing technological and formal answers to the various requirements of urban settings. The optical unit forms the luminaire core, an integral system of LEDs, reflectors, assembly unit and surrounding passe-partout – ensuring a high level of efficiency and visual comfort, with three different directional characteristics.
Perceptibly relieving. Phoenix Design makes complexity disappear in a fascinating way. For the Signature Series by Ronbow – a series specifically targeted at the European market – we have developed the bathroom furniture series “Stack”. Modularity and adaptability through fashionable updates turns “Stack” into an architectural object with functional beauty expressing order and clarity. Multifunctional: the bench used as a shelf. The asymmetrical handles add a graphical component to these bathroom furniture items. Furniture for an “intelligent” location offering more leeway and liberty.
For Viessmann, Phoenix Design designed a high-quality, maintenance-friendly low-temperature boiler, created for deployment in industrial facilities and office blocks. The design should be adaptable to different installation sizes and refer to the corporate design. So the device was consistently designed and equipped with ample surfaces. Central elements comprise the walk-on cover for easy component assembly as well as the easily pivoting boiler door for convenient service and cleaning. The design gives proof of quality, creating confidence in the entrepreneurial values of performance and longevity.
Pure luxury – that’s what they are, the basin mixers AXOR UNO Zero and AXOR UNO Select. The new collection within the AXOR brand is perfectly integrated into the concept of the timeless bathroom. Increasing urbanisation limits space: the unobtrusive and pleasant design of AXOR UNO makes valuable space appear more ample. This collection does not dominate; rather it serves as a complement, setting a subtle exclamation point. In terms of style and function, AXOR UNO adapts to any discerning claim – it’s smart thanks to its intuitive handling, and archetypal thanks to its confident character. Shaping the style are the precise contours and the elevated proportions in the golden section of the faucets, lending a particular aura and providing a marked effect for the entire room.
he RainMaker Select 460 Showerpipe can be easily mounted in front of the wall. Overhead and hand showers pamper with different spray modes: a strong and a soft one enriched with air. As a third option a pleasantly massaging “Stream” spray is available. The ShowerTablet Select 700 is used to control the shower as well as serving as a storage area for utensils. The Select buttons indicate with clear icons that a push of the button is sufficient to turn the different showering functions on or off. The Showerpipe is available in high-quality white-chrome, which fits perfectly within the bathroom ambience. iF Design Award GOLD Jury-Statement: This shower system convinces with its clear lines and understated design as well as with its multiple applications. Furthermore, the control element for various spray and jet types serving as a shelf for shower products is a particularly great feature. For us, this product is a good example for a perfect combination of functionality and design.
neigborSWAP – local networking against food waste. In Germany alone, 11 million tonnes of food are thrown into the garbage each year although they were still fit for consumption, 61% coming from private households alone. At the same time, increasing urbanisation makes people wish for more social networking. What can we do against this development? How do you get people to treat food with more consideration, and which role can social networks play here? The result has been developed in dialog with users, via different personae and scenarios: neighborSWAP, an app as a local shopping network. It enables people to do collaborative shopping as well as share left-over meals, unused food or home-grown produce via a sharing functionality. At the same time, it inspires users to adopt a diversified, conscious diet. Credits: Jan Schröter, Master Thesis, Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences.

Gira has newly defined the Event switch range: Gira Event Clear. The design convinces with a clear, deep appearance and high-gloss surface. The optical effect is based upon a special technology that enables transparent plastic to be color highlighted. This modifies the incidence of light upon the new colors offered by Gira: white, black, green, aubergine, brown and sand. Suitable inserts are available in pure white glossy, cream white glossy, anthracite and aluminum. The functions are as new as the colors – Gear Event Clear is available in full assortment, meaning over 230 functions for modern electrical installation.
Vom Notebook aus die Beleuchtung ändern – möglich ist das mit der neuen Standleuchte von Siteco. Futurel LED lässt sich nicht nur bequem via Bluetooth steuern, sondern verfügt auch über einen Bewegungssensor sowie über einen Lichtsensor, der das verfügbare Tageslicht auf der Arbeitsfläche misst. Befinden sich keine Personen im Umfeld des Sensors oder scheint die Sonne auf den Schreibtisch, reduziert sich die Beleuchtung entsprechend. Ein besonderer Multi-Kammer-Reflektor sorgt zudem für eine doppelt asymmetrische Lichtverteilung. Auf diese Weise wird unerwünschtes Streulicht auf ein Minimum reduziert und das Licht präzise auf der Arbeitsfläche verteilt. Futurel LED bietet eine intelligente, energieeffiziente und vor allem nachhaltige Beleuchtung für lange Arbeitstage im Büro.
Touchingly meaningful, dynamic and aesthetic. Balance beam, side horse and asymmetrical bars in a new shape, not only sporting the athletic quality of gymnastical achievement, but also – and even especially so – their aesthetic quality. That’s how our Phoenix Design Academy team proves that a visionary re-interpretation of classic gymanstic apparatuses is not only possible in an experimental study, but that these qualities are actually missing in the world of gymnastics. The dynamically designed, delicate and light gymnastic apparatuses elegantly grow upwards while being solidly anchored to the floor via vertical supporting elements. They thus oraganically combine with the gymnast’s movements. A sophisticated interplay of modern bearing structures and intelligent, unobtrusive design reducing the amount of material used to the very minimum. Thus, the gymnasts themselves are more clearly visible – creating a natural stage for their virtuosity and the beauty of the movement of the human body.
Design as a way to experience nature? Yes. Thanks to its unusual form and size, this bathtub offers a possibility to enjoy a feeling of free floating, like in the ocean. Phoenix Design has designed Bassino, the free floating bathtub, for Kaldewei, the European market leader of high-quality bathtubs and shower basins. With this innovative design concept we have shown how the bathing experience can be designed as a brand experience; and we have been able to affirm and extend Kaldewei’s position as a “brand of the century” among the circle of Germany’s strongest brands. Bassino is convincing thanks to its straightforward design language and its sophisticated functionality. Thank to its inner size, the tub may be used for floating freely in the water. In order to achieve an optimum floating effect, the provided cushion can be positioned as a neck rest underneath one’s head. The shallow water depth makes getting in and out of the tub conveniently easy. Thanks to its ample dimensions and straight floor surface, Bassino is also well-suited for being used as a spacious and comfortable shower basin. It can be installed with enclosure in front of a wall, in a corner or as a free-standing unit. A freely adjustable tub board, serving as shelf or seat as needed, expands the comfort functions, complementing the idea of versatile, individual bathing enjoyment.
Long life the pleasures of life and for Mimo they are round with regard to ceramics, sometimes asymmetrical, offer useful shelf space and easy to clean surfaces – and take up minimum space. Anything goes. Finally, your bathroom is your very personal space. All forms, colours and decorative elements are perfectly matched.
The cubical design of the washbasins and a separate ceramics shelf, which can optionally be positioned on the right or left, makes it possible to create an elegant bathroom with "Living City". Its reduced appearance and shelves which can be individually decorated add a personal note to every bathroom. The modular system offers washbasins with and without shelves in widths of 60 and 100 cm. Another feature of this range is that the washbasins and shelves can be individually cut at the factory on request.
unction intelligently combined. The hansgrohe C71 sink faucets for modern kitchens combine intuitive operation with independent product design. Exact geometrical forms and precise radii are characteristic design features of this collection. Via an operating lever at the right hand side of the sink, water temperature and quantity are controlled; whereas the select button at the extension head starts and stops the water flow. Alternatively, one big elegant knob will control water flow and drainage, while water temperature and quantity are adjusted by means of the faucet lever. The twofold result: comfortable and easy handling for all users. The idea to concentrate on elementary functions and needs in the kitchen as a room for living in order to improve the water handling experience was the guiding concept during the design process.
The strategic alignment of “Corporate Product Colours” is at least as important as the product design itself. Implementing new colour concepts to define the visual product identity across all business areas all the way to the manufacturing of these products is a far reaching and intense process, which in this case was triggered by the Head of Design at Vorwerk. Vorwerk’s basic specifications included using “Vorwerk green”, white as the main colour, and anthracite for contrast. Phoenix Design and the Vorwerk design department entered into a close collaboration to create a balanced colour concept for their main product, Kobold VK 150 (internal Vorwerk design). This process was accompanied by comprehensive market research studies and brand congruency analyses. The new concept now emphasises the performance power of the device while conveying the brand value of “longevity”. The Kobold VK 150 upright vacuum cleaner has since been awarded a “Special Mention” by the German Design Award 2014 for its harmonious colour design as well as its outstanding achievements in terms of innovation, quality and customer proximity.
A 10-inch touch panel with control logic and graphic user interface has now been developed for Vitomax industrial boilers. This human machine interface has been designed so that it can be operated by various user groups safely and intuitively. In addition, the panel bears the hallmark Viessmann corporate design features, thus signalling the product quality by way of its high grade appearance. The perfect finish of the frame and the layout of the graphic display set new benchmarks in the industrial machine tool sector
Ceramics with their beautiful and at the same time hygienic, scratch-proof surface are perfect for the demands in the kitchen. The distinct feature of the Cassia sink is a flowing use of forms and a generously dimensioned space to drain the dishes.
Kitchen System - Design with all senses: When we are storing food, we fall back on using systems, that don‘t serve our demands regarding emotional aesthetics and functionality at all. „animo“ is a system, that stages visually appealing aliments appropriately and gives the user the possibility to build his own unique order by moving the individual elements. The permanent presence of the food that is stored, leads to an better overview: Amount and best-before-dates won‘t get out of sight anymore. The established grid, existing of drawers and cupboards, gives way to a flexible ordersystem, which combines storing fresh & durable food at the same time with aesthetics and communication. „animo“ develops food into a design-feature of the kitchenarea - and that‘s just the focus it deserves.

The gentleman of tomorrow: touchingly reasonable, aesthetic and likable – Care-O-bot 4 is the new archetype of a service robot. It was developed at the Fraunhofer IPA in Stuttgart in close cooperation with Phoenix Design, combining User Experience Design in all its many disciplines. As a matter of course, timeless design, formal and functional precision are vital elements for its deployment in a modern architectural environment – barrier free. Care-O-bot 4 is singularly flexible and elegant. With its slim form, it moves smoothly and fluidly about the room. The intelligent interface and the tactile-visual design quality turn interaction into a cognitive and sensual experience. Being capable of autonomous navigation, identifying obstacles and picking up target objects are only some of its powers. The result: a symbiosis of design and engineering, of function and emotion – seducing users to enter into an interaction right away.
