defortec - design for technology - For defortec, the core tasks of successful design developments are the emotionalisation, individualisation and creation of brand-specific product features. Our customers‘ products have a clear design vocabulary and a high recognition value. Through our design, innovations become visible. We recognise and optimise operation processes, create confidence and trust in the new product and improve ergonomics and process technology. We create innovations. For us, this not only means thinking creatively, but also developing new, intelligent technical solutions. Connections, hinges, opening systems and material innovations in new contexts. We create innovative impetus for the products of the future. A particular focus of defortec‘s services are design concepts for the economically efficient implementation of new products. Our mission - design to cost - stands for intelligent design that allows our customers cost-saving production and thus rapid profitability. 4x IF Product Design Award 2014 Focus Open 2013 Silver IF Product Design Award 2013 2x IF Product Design Award 2012 reddot design award winner 2012 Nominierung Designpreis BRD 2010 Focus Green 2008 Gold Focus Green 2008 Silver 4x Nominierung Designpreis BRD 2009 2x IF product design award 2008 GOOD DESIGN Award 2008 Nominierung Designpreis BRD 2008 Focus Security 2007 Silber Nominierung Designpreis BRD 2007 IF product design award 2007 Focus Energy 2006 Silber IF product design award 2006 Nominierung Designpreis BRD 2006 reddot design award 2005 Animago 2003 IF exhibition silver award 2001 Design office 2000 BDG Logo award 2002
