Services

Exploit the possibilities of product and interface design in all its diversity! For us, this begins with an analysis of the customer portfolio and strategic consulting – regardless of whether we are tasked with developing new products or make existing ones better. At work, in interpersonal relations, in life – we are committed to function as a means of ensuring that our ideas really make a difference for people.
 

Product design

Product design

From machines for large-scale industrial assembly work, to ergonomically optimized office chairs, and from fully-automated packaging systems to table lamps – Struppler Industriedesign creates products for factories and living rooms, for serial production processes and artisan manufactories.

A sense of current market developments and social trends, and an understanding of technical innovations are essential – and incorporated into every project. We look to the future and focus on function – to create long-lasting products that are unique in their target markets. Our approach to design involves clarity and reduction. The technical production aspects of the development process are also given a clear language – with precise elaboration and the creation of application-oriented datasets.

We use software tools like SolidWorks and ProE to quickly test and optimize variants. This enable us to carry out the entire preliminary and final design process according to our clients’ individual specifications, taking all technical factors into account, without detours. Detailed, precise templates and instructions for assembly, all technical documentation, and the development of integrated data structures ensure transparent communication among all parties involved. We have a highly-qualified network of reliable suppliers and manufacturers for various production targets, and we can recommend them as partners for the implementation process.

Interface design

Interface design

From touch screens to mechanical control units – the real benefit becomes evident when smooth, intuitive communication takes place at the interface between man and product or machine. That's why we are so focused on the development of the best possible interface.

No matter how good the design and functionality of a product or large industrial production line may be on paper, optimal application economy can only be achieved with the development of state-of-the-art user interfaces. How well we can use a product or operate a machine, and how much we want to, is the key to its success. Achieving the best possible fulfilment of a requirement through goal-oriented, clearly actionable steps – this is the definition of our task in interface design. Making complex processes and functions comprehensible and representable – to ensure operation and maintenance is easy for people of different generations.

Even though technical and design expertise is essential, intuition plays a decisive role at the application level – even more than brainstorming or product development. It's always best to try things out. Struppler Industriedesign provides digital visualization or paper prototypes. These can be used to form a stable basis on which the key parameters in design and functionality can be discussed, evaluated and, if necessary, modified with the client for each project.
