Part of the global Honeywell group, Trend’s systems are the brains behind controlling virtually every type of non-residential environment.
We have been fortunate to be a design partner to Trend for many years working alongside the engineers on ideation, product development, UI and graphics.
Our role with IQ®4 was to established the look of the next generation of controllers and touchscreens, conveying a ‘Trusted Intelligence’. Driven by user research and insights, the product family is a versatile modular system that offers installers market leading technology with the practical benefits of a reduced product size & simple module interconnects.
The unique, integrated terminal covers rotate back into the housing in order to eliminate loss or damage during installation, typical of products in this sector. This functional feature helps minimise installation delays, something the engineers are very happy to hear.
Having established the new industrial design language we have developed comprehensive design guidelines covering all aspects of the Trend brand.
