THE LAB

CURIOSITY

DRIVES INNOVATION

Our whole studio is a prototyping lab. Being surrounded by the designs day after day inspires new ideas and encourages collaboration. This results in designs that are innovative and feasible.

The Lab is integral to ESI DESIGN’s approach to designing iteratively, through collaboration and by showing, not telling.

Prototyping, scale mock-ups and technological trials allow us test the limits of our conceptual thinking and engage all stakeholders in a project’s vision. By collaborating in-house, on-site and off-site with iterative mock-ups, we create lasting value from our design process. 

We believe good design should be intuitive, engaging and functional. The Lab process enables us to test our designs against those core values. We utilize the Lab to uncover answers and inform our design. In this way, we design with the audience, not merely for the audience.

At ESI Design, scale mock-ups and technological trials are central to our design process, and allow us test the limits of our conceptual thinking. Take a peek inside the #esilab via the link in our bio.

Day 1944 Material and light in shades of grey. #esilab #callmebyyournameagain “We rip out so much of ourselves to be cured of things faster than we should that we go bankrupt by the age of thirty and have less to offer each time we start with someone new. But to feel nothing so as not to feel anything – what a waste!”


Testing. Playing. Creating. 🎥 by @ewebzta
