  • Design and precision in modern medicine

    Design and precision in modern medicine

    When we speak about the development of medical aids, the highest precision is required. PHOENIX thinks ahead, what influence does design have in the course of time?
    Our 2 German Design Award Winners demonstrate this added value!

    The E-vita OPEN NEO is a Frozen Elephant-Trunk implant. It combines a conventional vascular prosthesis with an endovascular stent graft and thus allows the simultaneous treatment of the ascending aorta, the aortic arch and the descending aorta within one procedure. The E-vita OPEN NEO thus represents an alternative to conventional open surgery. The insertion system of the E-vita OPEN NEO follows a new design language - pure, reduced to the essential. The clear colour coding structures and underlines the ergonomic, significant and intuitive operability.

    The E-nya Stent Graft System was developed for the endovascular treatment of diseases of the descending thoracic aorta. With E-nya, a sterile implant is inserted permanently into the body using an insertion system. During release into the aorta, the stent graft expands to cover the damaged vascular segment. This ensures that the blood flow is maintained. The E-nyas delivery system follows a new design language - pure, reduced to the essential. It is structured by clear colour coding and underlines the ergonomic and intuitive operability.

  • Wie werden wir in Zukunft Leben?

    Wie werden wir in Zukunft Leben?

    Im Rahmen der imm cologne 2020 ist Matthias Oesterle, Design Businiss Manager bei PHOENIX, zum Design Talk eingeladen. Besuchen Sie die spannende Talkrunde über die Zukunft und wie Designer diese gestalten wollen. Halle 3.1/H011, Campus Forum, Di. 14.01.20, 14:45-15:15 Uhr

    Wir leben in einer Zeit, in der Menschen für ihre Meinung auf die Straße gehen. Uns beschäftigt der ausbeuterische Umgang mit der Natur, wir setzen uns für die Anerkennung von Menschenrechten ein und demonstrieren gegen unsinnige Kriege; oder wir protestieren gegen Mietwucher und kämpfen für das Recht auf bezahlbaren Wohnraum. Haben Designer Einfluss auf solche Entwicklungen? Oder beeinflusst unsere Wahrnehmung dieser gesellschaftlichen Rahmenbedingungen die Ideen von Kreativen? Von der nachhaltigen Produktidee über ökologische Produktionsverfahren bis hin zu schlauen und praktischen Einrichtungsideen: die Teilnehmer der Diskussionsrunde zur imm cologne 2020 versuchen die Rolle von Designern bei der Gestaltung unserer Zukunft zu erfassen. Der Designjournalist und Trendforscher Frank A. Reinhardt (far.consulting) diskutiert mit den Designern Jeannette Altherr (Studio ADP), Matthias Oesterle (Phoenix Design) und Martin Hirth über das Wohnen und Leben in der Zukunft.

    Talkrunde Halle 3.1 im Campus Forum – Stand H011.
    Termin: Dienstag, 14. Januar 2020 – 14:45-15:15 Uhr
