Along with fostering talent within the business, we also foster talent outside of the business. Tyba Design, a design house funded by Ideaworks, have won a prestigious A’ Design award for one of their first products. Thirty years of listening to our Clients has given us the hunger, the funding and the talent to start making products that are the direct result of our Clients feedback. Not only are those products now available to our Clients but now also to a much wider market.
So we should share the credit for this first product with our Clients; thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experiences of technology in your homes. Your demands for a simple physical device that was also capable of multiple functions was what we heard and what Turn delivers.
Turn takes the simplest of human interactions and, taking advantage of new swipe technology, simplified the three most used functions in a room into a single elegant gesture. Lights. Blinds. Temperature. All this wrapped in a machined aluminium case that feels more like an expensive watch than a domestic appliance.
After receiving a full patent, Turn has been exhibited at a number of Yacht and Trade shows since its inception. Thanks also has to go to Fred Bargettzi of Crestron for embracing Turn and allowing us to make it part of their family of connected products via an accredited Crestron Module. Turn also has a module for KNX to take into multiple Connected Home infrastructures.
The A’Design Awards and Competition was founded to highlight and advocate good design, designers and design orientated companies. Turn was a winner in the Digital and Electronic Devices Design Category. “Every element of Turn has been designed to create an incredible user experience,” adds Oz “we are really pleased that this has been recognised.”
