Disrupting product categories with design
LUNAR initiated an internal design project to demonstrate how a holistic design approach to product development can disrupt a product category, like that of home training equipment.
Out of this internal project two stellar concepts emerged:
VELA, a cycle trainer which ,Forbes‘ called ,the bike that looks like art‘. And NOVA, a newly imagined climbing wall, that introduces relevant interactions with sensors and a smartphone app. Both caught the attention of broad audiences and won several design awards in 2013. Roman and Hanne will speak about the power of design and how to create great experiences.
