For the SynerNet Gateway project for Fluxion, we embarked on a challenge to not just meet but surpass our client’s specifications for a more intuitive and visually appealing device. The original product was a simple, unmarked box, limiting user interaction and functionality due to its nondescript nature and outdated socket configuration. Our mission was to introduce a transformative design update that would make the device not only more user-friendly but also more informative at first glance.
Dimensions: The revamped gateway boasts dimensions of 210x240mm, offering a compact yet versatile structure.
