Rugged tablet enclosures for harsh environments

    • Archangel IFLBA

      Archangel Armor’s internal frame load-bearing armor system utilizes a carbon fiber substructure that mechanically adjusts for different soldiers’ body types.

      Our challenge was to ergonomically identify the necessities in sizing, design the system, fabricate a mold, and prototype initial parts.

      The ergonomics test that followed showed a marked improvement over the US ARMY’s IOTV system.

    • Faire – Cameron Village

      Our design for Faire references the mid-century roots of the Cameron Village area. We have drawn our color palette from popular textiles and interior trends from the 1940’s and 50’s, and selected “Eames-era” furniture with a modern-day twist

      Faire leverages a rich combination of vintage details, modern textures, and rhythmic patterns that add up to an open, optimistic space that’s all about comfort and style.

    • Delafield Air Disinfector

      Many facilities use vaporized hydrogen peroxide systems to disinfect rooms. These machines work well, but the hydrogen peroxide they spread is very, concentrated and is unsafe to breathe.

      By contrast the ideal gases produced by the Delafield Air Disinfector are safe to breathe and can be used continuously. This chemistry kills germs more slowly than vaporized hydrogen peroxide, but PHP keeps working while the room is being used.

      Our design is a sleek solution for a universal application. From households to hotels, our minimalist styling and sleek lines fit with many types of decor.
