Award-winning system design

centrotherm C.FIRE

Optimization of costs and innovative industrial design fit together: for centrotherm photovoltaics AG, a world-wide leading company for photovoltaic technology and equipment, we developed a new overall product design. The reduced, modern concept of color and form convinces especially by its innovative combination of materials, contrasting different functional system units among each other. The quiet appearance underlines the systems‘ sublime quality and reliability.


The underlying approach of design-to-cost connects the optimal costs with supreme industrial design and user-friendly ergonomics. Design-to-cost means to take care of all single product parts while the whole process of development and to optimize them towards the best solution considering costs, design and quality. The first centrotherm photovoltaics systems, designed regarding this approach, have been delivered in 2011, having the new design and containing better technology.
