NNS

NNS wanted to create a burglar alarm, warning device that would fit into contemporary office- and public environments. The request was based on the increasing efforts in interior decoration and the lack of alternatives in regards to technical installations such as alarms etc.

Project

Info

The process ended in a concept where the internal structure of the product was optimized and where the front is covered, as opposed to using a grill/perforated cover. Instead of the sound exiting through the front, the speaker is directed backwards letting the sound resonance using the wall behind.

The productis customizable, and the general thought is that the user would rather expose the alarm instead of hiding it for aesthetic reasons, allowing it to perform better. The Alarm is modular in terms of installation where the power chord can be routed both from the top and the bottom. Furthermore, the shape and functionality are independent to whether it´s installed vertically or horizontally.

Creative Boost
Every design quest starts with ideation. At Cliff Design we always start of with gathering as many competences as possible to explore a given task. Using workshops, we aim to get the widest possible range of ideas.

Product Design
Product design is one of our core offers. It icludes everything from sketches to design NUFO:s and concept engineering.

Polygon Modeling
Polygon modeling is a quick and diverse way to explore shape and design, making the process efficient and straight forward. It is a powerfull method to visualize and to set an early design vision without getting locked up in advanced surface CAD data. It is also used for animation, texturing, rigging and visualization.

Visualization
Rendering is used to explore different materials, textures, graphics and colors. It can be used to communicate ideas in a more clear way making sure all parts of an organization is on board as to where the project is heading. Furthermore it is a great way of creating pre-launch marketing material and scenarios.
