GLOBUS

TRANSPORT VEHICLES MANUFACTURE

Globus was established to be a leader in the field of compact and medium-sized transport vehicles.

We create a new collection for Globus every year, making an effort to keep the design tradition while keeping track of the new esthetic trends.

 

 


OXO

Grape & Tomato Cutter

Sharp, serrated, stainless steel blades quickly and easily slice through the soft fruit skin, while keeping fingers safe and out of the way.
The blades also cut through pitted olives and grape tomatoes with ease. The curved finger rests provide comfort, even during repetitive use.
The cover snaps on for safe storage.

The Grape & Tomato Cutter comes apart for easy cleaning and is top-rack dishwasher safe.

NOVTECH

Monico is recognized worldwide for providing superior communications products and technical assistance across the industrial marketplace. We have long been a leader in CAT® equipment communication and monitoring due to our exclusive ability to communicate across CAT® Data Link and extensive experience with SAE J1939. In recent years we have expanded into the Cummins® market and also work with Kohler®, John Deere® and MTU® equipment.

The product had to measure up to a number of key challenges like significant mechanical resistance, water and dust occlusion and heat dissipation management. We wanted to create a coherent system that will address all these challenges in a way that will seem like an authentic part of the design. The heatsink became the main design feature. As the product can be placed in different positions, the flanks are circumferential which improves the functioning and creates a new design line typical of Monico.


NETAFIM

 

For Netafim we planned and designed two main components of the irrigation management and monitoring system for large fields. The system includes an end computer that controls irrigation and fertilization, and a central management computer that controls all of the end units.

The planning challenge in the system was to create a product that allows easy access and opening during field conditions, on the one hand; and has a very high resistance to environmental conditions and is water-tight, on the other. We tried to create a simple and iconic look that would easily identify Netafim’s products and allow for the easy expansion of new products. In this project we created very complex models throughout the duration of the process – both because of their physical size and also because of the need to comply fully with the environmental conditions defined for this product for experimental purposes.

 


BGI

 

A system of underground gates that will be planted in the earth. It can be raised or lowered as required. We planned and designed the entire system. The challenge was to create a system that would be able to withstand very severe conditions of collision from heavy vehicles, yet meet all the required standards of security. In this system we solved one of the most difficult problems of such systems and this is the depth of excavation into the ground. By means of developing a unique patent we have lessened the depth of the excavation by about 40%, and therefore have achieved a much easier assembly and installation procedure at the site; it is also much faster to install. In addition, a great effort has been made to create a system that looks aesthetic and will integrate non-threateningly into the urban environment, while maintaining a competitive level of pricing.

 


CORETIGO

 

The Israeli CoreTigo develops special systems that are used to connect and communicate between sensors and control units. The company provides a complete solution from the physical (PHY) layer  through to a system that can be installed in any sensor or PLC. These systems are based on the IO Link Wireless Standard, which the company is promoting in collaboration with manufacturers of industrial equipment in Europe and the United States.

As part of a joint venture with the company we have developed an installation which is designed to demonstrate the technology developed by CoreTigo.

 


VOLVO E

 

Volvo E is a people carrier that fits the next generations of Volvo buyer’s
lifestyle. We took Volvo’s traditional core values to the extreme with features such as unique rear cabin seating arrangement and door systems.

Energy efficiency and aerodynamics were the main inspiration behind the strong, clean and aesthetic lines of the Volvo E.

 


BODYGUARD

 

Interior design for a unique vehicle (a ‘one-off’) designed for VIP passengers and their bodyguards (their personal staff). In this project, the challenge was to create a high-quality and industrialized appearance in a product that was produced only once. We created a design that has separate surfaces and in which all components of the system are independent units. This allows for the appearance to be complete and perfect, on the one hand; and to overcome the difficulty of designing precision in a product that is made only once, and is produced under the conditions of a model item. Another challenge was to allow passengers to see the unique engine of the vehicle (an enhanced CORVETTE ZE engine) from inside the passenger compartment.

 


MICRONET

Micronet MT5 – Full Functionality Smartphone

The product was designed as a terminal for automobiles, trucks and buses or taxicabs fleet. The product has many functions like control and follow-up, car monitoring and organizational communication. The MT5 is the smallest of a series of Micronet products. The goal was creating a tool that will function like most of the advanced gadgets in a much smaller package, allowing for ideal mobility. The product is supposed to be connected to the car systems and portable by the end users. The significant challenge was to do all that while maintaining the same resistance the bigger gadgets boast: water resistance (ip68), falling resistance etc. The designer was aiming to create a portable and up to date product that looks durable and hardy.

The product is made of soft and hard plastics (double injection) for sealing purposes and protection from falling.


BIODOSE

Biodose is a product for medication management, for use primarily by patients with chronic diseases. The product interfaces with an existing drug table that is marketed by the pharmaceutical company. The system shows the user which medication should be taken and at what time, and also ensures that the medicines have been taken.

In addition, the system serves as an automatic alert system: in the event that the patient does not take the medication, it alerts him by means of a message; after which it alerts a relative of the patient;  and finally it sends a message for medical help – in this way acting as a smart emergency button. It is also possible to initiate the use of an emergency button vis-à-vis an emergency hotline.

The challenge was to create a product that would suit an existing drug table and would be easy and convenient for older users, who often suffer from problems with vision and various motor skills.

The engineering challenge was to adapt the product to an existing medicine table, and for it to contain a large number of sensors in a very limited physical space, which should ensure that the medicines are taken.


VERIZON

 

‘Smart home’ system of the American company Verizon. The system enables every home computer to control all the smart components that have been installed in the house, as part of the system that Verizon provides to the customer. The goal was to create a unique and advanced design that could be applied to all other components in the system. In this project, reference has also been made to the packaging of the product and its visibility within the specific selling space of the company.

 

 


BIOGUARD

 

The product is used for biometric identification. The challenge was to create a product with a completely new appearance, while basing it on an existing electronic design.

We took advantage of images from the world of Science Fiction as inspiration for the product. A combination of two materials have been used in the product –  metal and plastic – in one injection. We tried to create a new icon for a key – by means of a design circling around the metal circuit, in the center of which was the biometric sensor.

 


DACAR//OBJET

 

2 X 4 buggy for off-road racing, designed by Erez Abramov. In this project we were responsible for the design and for accompanying the production process of the outer shells. The vehicle successfully competes in off-road races.
