Design excellence

Design excellence is achieved when the final result of the creative and technical process delivers an elegant, efficient and rationale solution. It is about touching the heart of a user, about fulfilling a need in an elegant or novel way, and about experimenting, exploring and pushing the possibilities of materials, technology and fabrication techniques.
