Product & Industrial Design work for QUBS AG. The company approached our studio for the concept, design, development & prototyping services. We were in charge of the whole product design (from conceptualisation to user testing) along with the project management of it. We worked with the company and its factory to bring the product from concept all the way to full scale manufacturing.

 

We collaborated with Studio Peter Krige and Studio Christophe Machet for the software & mechanical engineering, Joao Fazenda for the illustration work, and In The Shade Of A Tree for the Brand Identity.

 

We developed the product with these factors in mind: being playful and intuitive while at the same time being a beautiful little wooden toy with a life of its own. The patented RFID technology embedded in every wooden block allows us to make the electronics invisible and we intentionally did not incorporate any Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or app so that it can be passed from one generation to another.
