Diameter Measurement System
Xonox Technology GmbH
Jede Technologie braucht ihre Schnittstelle zum Menschen. Ihre Hauptaufgaben sind es den Schutz des Benutzers als auch der Technik zu bieten, fehlerhafte Handhabungen zu vermeiden, intuitive Bediehnbarkeit zu gewährleisten und Komplexität in Übersichtlichkeit zu wandeln. Gestaltung des Gehäuses inklusive der Bedienelemete. Ausführung in Aluminium, gelasert, gebogen, pulverbeschichtet.
Barcodes and barcode readers play an essential role when it comes to processing and controlling complex data systems. This simple fact led to the development of a small and most importantly handy barcode scanner. The scanner transmits the information directly to another handheld device, such as a smart phone and therefore doesn’t need a display. This work has been developed during a 6-month work experience in Tokyo and was awarded the Good Design Award Japan 2009.

formart industrial design
The Otoscope by Orlvision is a camera used by otologists for special medical examinations of the patient’s ears. The Otoscope stand provides excellent support and therefore easy handling. The Otoscope stand has been designed to be able to use on horizontal as well as vertical surfaces.
Design and Visualization
Hit the park and just get comfortable. Pneu is an inflatable and waterproof bag that can be converted into a comfortable seat pad. This technology is made possible by the airproof zipper and an ordinary valve. The idea was born during a competition held by the Hessian Agency (Hessenagentur) and awarded first prize.
>>Concept, Design, Prototype and tool construction, developing a prototype ready for serie construction in cooperation with manufacturers.
Diploma project 2009
Once a flat material has been folded it might not just become a three-dimensional shape, but its stability is increased remarkably.
The concept behind the foldable bike helmet Ka-Bu-To has been developed based on this fact. The inflatable cushions are automatically filled with air once the helmet is being brought into shape. The helmet provides sufficient air ventilation so you stay cool while riding through busy traffic.
Ka-Bu-To is Japanese and refers to the protective shield of the stag beetle as well as the traditional combat headgear worn by Samurais.

This bird feeder transforms a bird’s worst enemy into a welcoming space for a picnic. Simba is made from curved stainless steel and consists of two parts. Two hooks provide space for two fat balls lending the cat its eyes. Simba has been produced as a limited edition of 500 pieces and has been sold worldwide.

U3 vehicles (tricycle)
Learning how to go from walking to riding a vehicle has always been a fascinating step in a child’s developmental process and one that should not be missed. Bikez Minis is a range of vehicles especially created by Olifu for children under 3 to be used in pedagogical institutions such as kindergartens and pre-schools. Because of their unique stability these bikes serve as reliable vehicles being used by many children day after day.

A small detail sets our Sandsieve apart from most others. The four legs not only give it the apperance of a small turtle, they also make it possible to use it when it's standing on the ground. It fits perfectly ontop olifu's Sand Bucket and of course it is stackable.

Cube jetties and plates
Put them in a line, pile them up or arrange them, as you like. We’ve created the perfect pyramid shaped plates and frames for our concept cubes. Tidying becomes a fun activity that even the smallest explorer can master. Whether it’s putting together colourful patterns, numbers, calculations, just words or whole sentences, our range of cubes offer many possibilities.
As all the elements are compatible with each other they can be used to create whole buildings and constructions.

Fort for kids
Diploma project 2010
The initial thought behind Kadoki has been inspired by the idea that children are collecting and gathering their own construction materials. Usually kids go to the woods, collecting sticks and branches, transforming them into a secretive den with the help of fabrics and blankets. This simple click-in-system allows children to connect the different parts easily with one another, discovering the properties of static loading while the attached blanket, decorated with colourful strings, helps to transform the construction into the ultimate cosy den.

Bau Dir Was Clips
The perfect extension for Bambula and Bau Dir Was game concepts of olifu GmbH to broaden the possibilities of constructing with these games. Wether it's flat geometric compositions like mandalas or architectural pieces of art, these five little clips expand the fun in many directions.

KuKo - ball concept
Wooden balls are faszinating - and - the like to roll as much as they can. With KuKo we inveted a pedagogical toy concept, where the ball is central element.
Sudenly the ball becomes a construction tool or is used as a token in a game.
With the rings the balls becomes stackable, with the bars it is possible to build high structures. The kicker is: all parts are harmonized so that they offer a lot of playing possibilitys.
