The design of Pyrex’s new ‘Optimum’ range was led by insights gained during consumer research. One of these insights centred on a reluctance to take the Pyrex from oven to table

To celebrate the Centenary of Pyrex, the resilient glass cookware brand, International Cookware – exclusive licensee of Pyrex – appointed design consultancy Cambridge Design Partnership (CDP) to develop a new generation of Pyrex premium ovenware.

At the start of the design process, CDP carried out detailed interviews and observations with everyday kitchenware and Pyrex users to gain insight into the current experiences and challenges of end users.

Requirements uncovered included deeper dishes, handles promoting a more secure (typically gloved) grip, and easier cleaning. Additionally, an aesthetic that promoted oven-to-table serving was desired.

CDP took these findings into consideration when the design team began work on the new Optimum range.

Holophane is enlightening the streets of Formby to energy savings one luminaire at a time

With a new EU Directive coming into effect this week, the lighting industry is adopting more efficient technologies into their overall design processes.

All energy inefficient street lamps are to be resigned to the scrap heap by 1 September 2016, meaning a wave of new designs being worked on in the meantime, with benefits coming from the design software used.

Street lighting designers Holophane recently unveiled its revolutionary ultra-slim V-Max system, which features pre-programmed dimming capabilities for low activity periods (midnight to 6am) that can provide nearly 76 per cent savings over older set-ups.

LimitState:FIX users now have a choice of techniques for closing solids.

The latest version of LimitState:FIX has been unveiled, promising to be more robust and capable than before, with a host of under-the-hood enhancements and bug-fixes.

Utilising Polygonica technology from engineering software firm MachineWorks, LimitState:FIX aims to make the fixing of wall thicknesses, shell completion and noise removal with a single click.

Production companies and bureaux in particular find flawed STL files waste significant working time, so a ‘one click’ automatic fix, coupled with a sophisticated manual fixing processes is going to be a big draw.
