As industrial designers, we add value to raw materials
and we use sustainable design and inclusive design to help
us do this.
We believe that inclusive design and sustainable design, rather
than being minority interest specialised fields, are becoming
increasingly incorporated into mainstream design practice.
The UK Design Council agrees (see
what they say). It is our aim to stay at the cutting edge
of this development in industrial design, which is gaining
momentum as you can see in the media.
As far as we know, we are the
first industrial design consultancy in the UK specialising
in these fields. We previously traded under the name 'TheGreenDesignCompany'.
We are constantly researching the field to keep us ahead of
the game, and we can keep our clients ahead of the game too
by offering these forward-looking approaches to design.
'The ergo-trowel for SKC is designed for disassembly and for recycling. The shape of the handle comes from user research with older and less able people, but the resulting design is better for everyone.
