Best wishes for 2010

What if design helped us get back to basics?
… taking the world as it comes?

After all, there must be a reason why it is like this.
A reason why European industry is shooting itself in the foot by transferring research and production to Asia.
A reason why intelligence is exported.
A reason why more and more Chinese companies are aiming to develop their own products.
A reason why the design is considered, more and more as an ordinary component.
A reason to wish an excellent year to designers because if they have the competence the opportunities are there.
A reason to wish an excellent year to European manufacturers because it is no longer a matter of economics but intelligence : to build a future based on other criteria.

Therefore happy new year to everyone….

OPENING STRATEGY STIMULO
PRODUCT DESIGN FROM A to Z

PICSA is, amongst others things, a polycarbonate and reusable bottle manufacturer in Spain.
To face a strategy of diversification, the company has launched a new cold-water dispenser system in a clever way, that will increase its bottle production and create a permanent business.

For the existing products still on the market, one of the main problems is the maintenance and sanitisation of the system:when we sell mineral water, the water is refrigerated (that’s why the system is complex), when we sell bottles we directly refrigerate the bottles… this is the advantage of PICSA’s ECOBOT, avoiding all contamination problems.
ECOBOT is the smallest cold-water dispenser currently on the market for a 10 litters capacity.

Our role: the development of ECOBOT system from the concepts researches to the global follow up in relation with the chinese factory.
Global project took around 2 years. Launching in 2007.

Ramon Martinez. Creative director Stimulo – a Design (Pool) partner.
