Taking One of Europes Biggest Heating Manufacturers Digital – with the Remeha Etwist

Leading industrial design and interaction design for a new line of digital thermostats and accompanying apps for BDR Thermea’s brand – Remeha.

It is important to delight the user at the time of interaction, but not dominate the room. Taking the client on a journey with new full colour LCD screens, proximity sensors, and the accompanying connected app, it was important to restrain the industrial design with a sophisticated minimal form and CMF design. During our design ethnography phase, we found that almost all Dutch houses have white walls – there was a desire from users to not have a design that was too loud against these simple backgrounds. By reducing mechanical elements to a simple dial with two internal buttons, and focusing the users interaction to one central location the design is lighter and more integrated in to the modern living room.
