Markes International has been awarded a European Product Design award for their recently re-designed “xr” series of thermal desorption (TD) products. Designed in collaboration with Sanders Design Associates Ltd, the “xr” series products were awarded silver in the category of “Industrial and Life Science Design” at the recent award ceremony.
“Markes commissioned Sanders Design to reappraise the design of its thermal desorption instrument products in terms of construction, assembly, aesthetics, human factors, and ergonomics,” said Julian Sanders, MD at Sanders Design.
“The design intent was to use contrasting colours and finishes, to create strong ‘drop shadows’ in key areas where large panels would naturally align. Floating and overlapping offset panels were also key design features, which help to create the products’ distinct character,” explain Sanders.
