2021 - another Corona year
Vaccination, boosting, testing - we give everything to keep operations going for our customers and that has worked very well so far.
In 2021, we handled design projects for the first time without meeting the project teams in person once. Of course, that is now possible, but we still miss the personal encounters at work very much.
In the past year we were able to win numerous new customers with exciting projects. The work on these new projects - in addition to the developments for our long-term customers - has been a great challenge for us. That is why we have also strengthened our staff in order to expand our competencies and capacities.
New team members:
Anna Sophie Stock / technical product designer
Anna Hünnerkopf / Industrial Designer (B.A.)
Special highlights from 2021:
Many of our product developments premiered in 2021 and were presented to the public and customers for the first time. We are particularly proud of the new BODENBENDER, PRIMO and ZSK products. Challenging projects with results that speak for themselves.
We will shortly be introducing these great products to you here in more detail ...
We say thank you to all clients, partners and friends. Let's be optimistic about 2022. We look forward to your projects!
Design budget - online seminar on May 20th
Getting design budgets right is not an easy task, but there are a few rules.
During this free online seminar, we look at design budgets from all angles and provide information on the most important issues. A good opportunity if you are inquiring about design services and shopping ... (in german language only)

New Team Members - Coming Soon
In the last few weeks we have been looking for additional personnel. We have now seen numerous great applications. The choice was not easy for us.
You will soon find out more about our new team members here.
Ahead of google
Today, google announced that it would expand its navigation functions to include low-emission routes. Great idea!
In 2019 we presented "gradi" our concept for a navigation app that offers exactly this functionality at the Hessian Innovation Congress. Clear proof that our innovations have their finger on the pulse!
2020 - a very special year
2020 - a very special year with challenges that we would all have gladly done without.
Every day is a fresh start.
Ambiente 2020 was the last “real” trade fair that we could still visit live. After that everything changed. Video conferences with the project team are now part of everyday life for everyone. Those digital tools made it possible to establish a closer communication with most of our clients.
The past year pushed our team to the limit. With support from our network, we were able to keep our extensive projects on schedule and deal with all new inquiries.
Special highlights from 2020:
The tourist guidance system that we conceived, designed and implemented was installed in Limburg's old town. 10 sights of the old town are marked in 3 languages for tourists, maps and signposts make it easy to find your way around the winding streets.
We were able to develop design concepts for a new product line for a new client from the public design sector. In addition, for the first time we carried out a design consultation sponsored by RKW Hessen for a manufacturer of vehicle equipment.
Not to forget our spontaneous pop-up projects that were born out of the pandemic situation. With our 3D printing partner apc-tec, we created several useful solutions in spring 2020, such as our clearviewclip.de, which are still providing good service.
We say thank you for making it this far. Let's start into a positive 2021 together. We are looking forward to new projects!
Merry Christmas to all friends, customers and partners and a Happy New Year. We are looking forward meeting all of You healthy and safe in 2021
The as/ industrial design team!
The search for a simple solution!
During the Corona period, we worked intensively with our cooperation partner for 3D printing on usable solutions for everyday life.
In addition to the clear view clip, which gives people with glasses a clear view when wearing everyday masks, we have also developed a reusable mask set with interchangeable filter fleece.
Our clip can be easily attached and adapts to the face contour with flexible elements.
You can buy the clip and mask set as a 3D print part from our cooperation partners.
spring in 2020
Spring has arrived and this year nothing is as it was before.
We have taken all the necessary measures in our company to prevent infection as much as possible and are currently available to our clients as usual.
We want to look positively into the future with you and look forward to your project inquiry.
Goodbye 2019 - Hello 2020
We are very proud of our incredibly productive year 2019. The numbers speak for themselves:
With our core team and thanks to support from our network, we have completed over 26 individual projects, more than 10 from first ideation sketches to series production.
We have over 40 plastic components pre-designed or completely designed for injection molding.
In addition, 2 customer-specific consulting projects were carried out, including ideation workshop and presentation / illustration of a product idea.
We were able to convince 3 new customers of our work, for which we will continue to work in 2020.
Incidentally, we trained 2 interns, designed an APP for navigation with geodata, visited numerous specialist congresses and trade fairs and participated as an exhibitor in the Hessian Innovation Congress and the W3Fair in Wetzlar.
Now we are looking forward to a productive 2020 together with you!
