BEWI Energy had already developed the idea for a universal protector to a defined concept, before collaborating with EGGS. When EGGS came aboard the task was to further develop this idea through innovation, development, and completion, which are key elements in industrial design and mechanical construction.
– For us, design means every aspect of product development. A good design is a design that benefits the planet, is cost efficient to produce, ergonomic for the users and has a pleasing appearance. The people at BEWI Energy are design thinkers themselves. They have shown creativity, innovation, willpower, and appreciate “hands on” work, says Carl André Nørstebø, Creative Director on Industrial Design at EGGS.
The collaboration between EGGS and BEWI Energy has been a continuous innovation process. In their studio in Trondheim, 3D-printing prototypes has been done almost on a daily basis.
– Our philosophy has been “print before thinking”. Sometimes you have to get physical before you can have a definite hypothesis, says Nørstebø.
