HUMAN CENTERED INTERFACE FOR AIR HANDLING
2018/2019 | 6 months | Squareone GmbH | Team-Project
The X-Cube is a scalable and highly configurable air handling unit for any complex or incomplex building arcitecture. After redesigning the X-Cube, Trox asked squareone to develope the human machine Interface to operate the X-Cube and also define a new designlanguag for future Interfaces of Trox.
The goal was to develop a user interface that fits to the X-Cube Machine and is simple and modern. Adapting the machines coloring and giving the interface a functional, intuititve and cubistic look was very much the focus of the design development. The future designlanguage for Trox interfaces should be timeless with bright colors, simple Icons, consistent typography and a cubistic wireframe-arcitecture.
The X-Cube is a modular air handlilng unit whose components vary from device to device. The icon-stickers on the machine represent the different components that are used in the Interface. Therefore the layout of the interface has a certain grid that allows this modularity.
TESTING AND PROTOTYPING
With the help of click prototypes the Interface was multiply tested during the developing process to ensure an intuitive interface that is examinated on its usability, design and comprehensibility.
