The AgeExplorer® clearly highlights how important it is for items to be within easy reach.
Exploring requirements using the AgeExplorer®
Designing functional fittings for ergonomic furniture requires a keen eye for observation. Our in-house Requirements Research Department uses this skill on a daily basis. We not only monitor how furniture is used around the world but also employ the AgeExplorer® age simulation suit as a key tool for research. The results of our detailed studies are incorporated in the development of new products and the optimisation of existing ones.

The instant the wearer puts the suit on, they get a sense of just how arduous day-to-day activities can be. Blum employee Simon, architect Julia and furniture designer Jürgen all took the plunge and embarked on an exciting practical test using the special suit in their own work and home environments.
