The design studio was founded in 2004 by Carola Bartsch in Bellinzona / Ticino. Designing complex products and interfaces, making them easy to use, has always been one of the main fields of the activity.

A second focus is the design and realization of interactive applications and installations. The center of interest for both areas is the human being.

The clients are companies in the fields of medical and laboratory technology, investment or consumer goods as well as service providers and public institutions. These include, in particular, SMEs, some of them as long-term customers.

The project work is performed in close dialogue with the customer: with the management or with marketing and development departments, often also in the interdisciplinary team. This brings innovative ideas rapidly to real products.

Design means above all problem solving, it makes things and processes easier and more pleasant. It is thus itself the interface between human and object / system. In this context it is adapting to the respective user group and exploring new ways, for the whole concept or in detail.

A further function is the communication of quality and identity: the goal is to develop unique solutions, which convey emotional values. This must not be limited to the visual aspect, but, depending on the area, may also appeal to several senses.
