Meet Matthias, Designer for All at Tactile
“Design for All” is an emerging trend in direct sensory “discovery”
Following the principles of Design for All, we offer tools tailored to human diversity. Our 3D models and environments address the full range of physical situations for the individual.
We especially engage the blind and visually impaired people in the design process from the outset of the project. We test, listen and adapt in order to meet high requirements for an ergonomic, pedagogical and aesthetically stunning interface. The result is displayed at the heart of the exhibitions. It, then, engages everyone in a new tactile way of discovering arts.
With the experiences from our evaluation workshops on past projects we have come to design principles and tools that are most beneficial to blind and visually impaired museum visitors, especially those that who have some residual sight.
Our expertise: Digital Craftmanship
We like to think of ourselves as “digital craftsmen”. Every object released from the studio is designed and produced here on our premises. Each is unique, handmade, and precision-engineered to your specifications. In order to ensure the design model you accept is exactly what you ultimately receive, we have developed our own in-house digital manufacturing and supply chain – 3D design and modeling, production by digital manufacturing, 3D printing, laser cutting, digital printing, exactly when it was promised.
Our goal is to integrate our models seamlessly into your environment. We want our designs to blend with your setting, your mood and your architecture. Therefore we choose carefully materials for the application and their final location, having built up our experience across many projects with a wide range of materials, both natural and man-made, from wood and metal to Corian, Plexiglas, synthetic resins and more.
