GOOD DESIGN IS INVISIBLE
Design has the task of organizing complexity and managing the interaction between man and technology. When it gets it right, the results produced are brilliant and satisfying.
Good design means satisfying not only technical, production and ergonomic needs, but also taking into account the entire user experience and the quality of the interaction. Experience is crucial because it determines the tonality of the memory that remains of the use of objects and our designers know this.
