Design to disrupt

October 24th, 2013

Our LUNAR Europe team will be sharing the secrets behind “Disrupting product categories with design” at the push.conference 2013 in Munich Oct. 26.

LUNAR Europe co-founder Roman Gebhard and user experience designer Hanne Trafnik will discuss the holistic design approach to product development that led to two stellar design concepts: VELA, a cycle trainer Forbes‘ calls “the bike that looks like art” and NOVA, a fresh take on a climbing wall that introduces meaningful interactions between athlete, sensors and a smartphone app.

Both projects won several 2013 design awards and NOVA was just recognized with a German Design Award for 2014!

The annual push.conference unites creative coding and user experience design by offering a platform for designers, developers and UX professionals. Learn more here and watch our blog for photos and insights from Roman and Hanne.

Three IDSA wins: Vela, Nova and SF Prep

July 3rd, 2013

LUNAR has won a Gold and two Bronze awards from IDSA for VELA, SF Prep and NOVA!

The Industrial Designers Society of America honored LUNAR this month with a Gold award for VELA, a cycle trainer designed by the team at LUNAR Europe in Munich that challenges the design expression of exercise equipment.

From a functional object, it transforms from workout tool to sculpture, showing off the user’s passion for their lifestyle through outstanding aesthetics. And clever integration of beautiful projections around the bike create an immersive training experience. VELA shifts the paradigm of training at home, making it a celebrated activity.

IDSA also recognized our work on SF Prep and NOVA with Bronze awards.

LUNAR partnered with the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management to understand why so few residents are prepared in any way for an earthquake, and what could be done to empower and motivate them to take action.

The outcome is a simple-to-use, affordable website that uses local San Francisco companies to deliver earthquake preparedness right to residents’ doorsteps through a web-based subscription service. By delivering earthquake preparedness products and learning’s over time, SF Prep gradually engages residents in the process and motivates them to ever-increasing levels of preparedness.

Like VELA, NOVA transforms perceptions of home exercise into a compelling experience. The climbing wall consists of panels with strategic patterns of cut-outs that create visually integrated climbing holds. Light patterns highlight climbing routes as they shine from behind the specific holds for programmed climb. Users control their route selection and receive personalized training through the NOVA Smartphone application.

We’re thrilled to be recognized by our peers in the design world. Congrats to the talented members of the LUNAR team who contributed to these projects!
