Concepts for the corporate design of tools

The aim of this cooperative project with Sandvik Tooling and the University of Ulm was to examine the topic of corporate design for tools and to develop an innovative new concept. The knowledge gained during the analysis phase about the similarities designed into families of products was correlated with short and those with long-term effects. The project focuses on recognisability, feasibility, and costs as well as materials and design for production.
