To realise the project, elmec collaborated with DDP Studio, professionals in the development of industrial design projects.
A proxemics, perceptive, ergonomic and functional analysis combined with an evaluation of trends, aesthetic requirements and competing products (or those with similarities to the device in question) allowed DDP Studio to proceed with a preliminary design phase and the development of several concepts.
Collaboration with the elmec project team also allowed us to take into account, during design development, feasibility through available production techniques suitable for series production.
After the proposal to be developed was chosen, the final CAD drawings in 2D and 3D were produced, an essential basis for the development and engineering of the system. The relationship between the mechanical engineers and the designers was essential to match the technical solutions and the aesthetic/functional proposals and to transfer them correctly to the prototype. This highly interactive step ended with the mechanical and aesthetic harmonisation of the design, which allowed the first prototype to be realised.
