Pilot project: Industrialized eco-design of a control armrest

In recent months, a pilot project has been created at elobau: The redesign of a control armrest with a focus on industrialized eco-design.

As part of a university thesis, Max Krohmer has been working on the design of such a control armrest over the past few months. The result is a design and material study, which is designed according to the principles of the circular economy with regard to the design and the development and manufacturing process. The work is to be understood as a study and can serve as a basis for further considerations with new materials and revised design. It gives an outlook on future, more sustainable products that focus on a more responsible use of resources and the environment.

With regard to the recycling process, the number of materials used is kept as low as possible. In addition, they can be quickly and easily separated from each other, and screw connections are avoided as far as possible. The stainless steel serves as a frame and as a support for the Karuun components. The Karuun in turn houses the controls and protects the electronics. The design is to be reimagined with the capabilities of the materials used.
