TAKING DESIGN WELLBEING FROM THEORY TO PRACTICE
With our customers’ needs and desires as a launching pad – just like the start-up process of lean companies – we are able to consider the problem-solution aspects of a product, assist in developing a concrete business model for the innovation itself, and increase the wellbeing of end users, supporting a more sustainable, meaningful and enduring design.
We have made design for wellbeing and need-centered design an integral part of how we work. Moving forward, it will become a part of our conveyor project. In order to demonstrate the positive and lasting impact of this concept, we will be collating case studies that showcase this approach in action. Ultimately, we will pursue designs that preserve the advantages of technology and ease of use, while also attempting to enrich lives through products and services which are experience-oriented.
