Design and prototyping

From 3D printing to full-material 1:1 prototypes

BURRI is happy to accompany customers as a sparring partner when choosing materials, functionalities and design. Thanks to closely coordinated workshops, we can develop fitting solutions quickly and cost-effectively.

Development and prototyping

BURRI draws on decades of experience in the marketplace and in production. We have the necessary infrastructure to take a successful prototype all the way to standardized series production. BURRI can offer all this from a single source – from materials procurement and production to delivery and installation. If desired, we can also undertake marketing and active sales.

Form follows function

From the look and feel to user handling, the prototype represents the crucial bridge between CAD design and a convincing series product. In the development phase, we work together with partners and designers to meet high design standards and to fulfil demanding requirements with regard to functionality and materials in the public domain.

Light engineering

Also in the area of lighting, we provide early-stage accompaniment for customers and lighting designers, for example in the planning and calculation of light distribution. An in-house development department with light laboratory can quickly produce fully functional on-site prototypes for light measurements and sampling. This helps to ensure optimum thermo-management, precise lighting and the right fixture details.

On the basis of models, numerous variants were assessed and optimised to perfection in order to achieve the best situation.
All control units and printed circuit boards were developed by BURRI and equipped with LEDs.
