Exploring how to reflect a product’s true value

Wildly explorative concepts & speculative design project

Reviewed & simplified the entire design

The Brief

Newcastle-based Novecom engaged Design Anthology to explore what a refresh of their Smart System Monitoring Network hardware could look like.

Challenges & Opportunities

  • Novecom’s existing trailer-based hardware didn’t adequately reflect the value that the hardware delivered. Our focus was on creating a concept that reflected the true value of that hardware
  • We  needed to simplify the entire design, utilising materials that allowed us to achieve efficient structural and visual forms
  • Technicians needed to be able to replace batteries and carry out maintenance procedures easily

The Results

The new concept can be easily deployed and packed up. It’s safe, secure and protects its valuable hardware whilst onsite and in transit.

We thoroughly enjoyed this speculative design project.
