Vaisala recognized in Finnish design competition

Vaisala’s industrial design received an honorary award in one of the most prominent design competitions in Finland, the Fennia Prize 2022.

Vaisala, a global instrument manufacturer and solution provider for weather, environmental, and industrial measurements, received today a recognition for the industrial design of its upcoming Indigo handheld instrument. The recognition highlights the commitment, customer centricity and creative work behind Vaisala’s world-known measurement solutions.

“Combining the technology and design, the Indigo handheld is a key part of the company’s brand. Vaisala is well on its way in utilizing design in a strategic and customer-oriented manner that covers product design, brand and communication,” competition jury comments the awarded product.

The Indigo handheld is a portable measurement instrument for industrial use. A special attention has been paid to its design, customer experience and usability, as it needs to be easy to take along and operate reliably in varying measurement environments while providing the same robustness as the fixed-mounted devices.

“The design goes beyond the products’ look and feel. The product design must meet the customer needs as well as the highest standards of accuracy, reliability, and ease of use,“ says Sauli Laitinen, Head of Design from Vaisala.

“In essence, the key area of the design expertise is the combination of form and function. Vaisala’s greatest assets in the industrial design are world-class UX-team and unbeatable application knowledge together with our ability to provide answers to the questions our customers didn’t even know they had.”

The awarded Indigo handheld will be launched later this year.
