With Frels® your glasses are always at hand and never lose grip. On your head, ears or neck: keep in touch with your glasses.

They allow your eyewear to be stored around the neck preventing it from falling or slipping. You can still wear your glasses with Frels attached, without any discomfort.

Frels are made of high-quality biocompatible material and manufactured in Switzerland in compliance with the strictest standards.

Aiming at high performance and quality, extensive research was undertaken to determine the most appropriate materials concerning flexibility, heat resistance, oil resistance, grip, sensorial property, safety.

Intensive testing ensured that Frels do not compromise the use of glasses, remain comfortable at all times and guarantee a safe skin contact. Usability was an important issue throughout the development process: Frels can be easily attached, removed and reattached to the temples of your eyeglasses.


Product development of consumer products

We pay special attention to design strategy, vision and identity, user research and design styling. This process of consumer product design also requires research, high-quality materials, safety standards and innovative solutions.

Practical, non-bureaucratic and tested approach

We involve your team early in the design strategy stage and unique ‘look-in-the-kitchen' sessions, where we make strategic decisions as equal partners. Decisions are based on the strategy, innovation research, functional mockups, industrial design shape studies, technical solutions and ergonomic research, leading to one single best concept.

During each stage of the process validations are done to help us design products with minimised risks, while keeping possibilities open for breakthrough innovations. Our unique approach is practical, non-bureaucratic and tested in dozens of projects.

Noodlamp Emergency Lamp

Industrial design of emergency lamp


In many cases emergency services are loosing time in the last few hundreds of meters approaching an accident or emergency. Navigation systems are very powerful, but in many situations the last part is still hard: a flat building has multiple entries, in a newly-build area some streets are still not in the navigation system, street numbering in the navigation does not match with reality or in very remote area's in the darkness, where it is hard to find a small road leading to a farm or remote house.

That is where this powerfull emergency light comes in, giving a strong visual signal to the ambulance or police where to find the scene.

The emergency light is using 8 very strong power LEDs which are visible during full daylight at a distance of about 400 meters.
