ESI Virtual Prototyping Supports JMDA’s Red Dot Award

Share

With a relationship that spans more than a decade, JMDA Design and ESI Group (Paris:ESI) worked together on the Tinyseats child car seat project which resulted in the highly acclaimed Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2020.

Multi-award winning JMDA Design has collaborated with ESI Group, a global player in virtual prototyping software and services for industrials, for many years. Their unique partnership enabled the Tinyseats child car seat project from Tinyseats Europe AB to undergo rigorous testing without the need of any physical prototypes. They were able to do this at the early stages of development to gain additional information about product performance and to help de-risk compliance challenges in a test situation. Using Virtual Prototyping by working with ESI Group, particularly for innovative, cutting-edge child restraint systems (CRS), ensures dynamic performance is optimised with controlled time and investment, from the upstream phases of the product design process.

Derrick Barker, Founder and Director at JMDA explains, “The Red Dot Award: Design Concept 2020 for the Tinyseats child car seat was a ground-breaking project aiming to achieve a very lightweight, compact and convertible car seat for children from 9 months old. Working with ESI Group enabled JMDA to gain substantial insight into the performance of the car seat early on in the design process, especially the load bearing structure, which could be fully evaluated in a virtual environment.” Derrick adds, “As our relationship goes from strength to strength with ESI Group we are backed by a team sharing our passion for innovation with the highest safety standards”.

We are really proud to be part of JMDA journey for many years now. Their commitment toward safety and comfort compelled with their undisputed design expertise make them a key player in the car seat industry. Helping industrials to commit to such outcome is truly embarked in our DNA and our strategy. This Red Do Award proves that allowing any compromise between, design, safety and performance is possible with the appropriate expertise, solutions and trust-based relationship.” declares Jonas Fredriksson, Managing Director – ESI Northern Europe

JMDA Design, a global provider for product design services with nearly 30 years’ experience in the industry, is currently designing their 105th child car seat, have. Partnering with world leading specialists, like ESI Group, is a critical part of ensuring a truly holistic approach to innovative product design.
