Color Material Finish

CMF- little beloved design details

Color Material Finish: For us, the
design process does not end with the purely geometric form and contour -
because the quality of perception is defined above all by the "little
beloved details", such as color, material and structures.

  • Material selection
  • Surface definition and finishing
  • Product graphics and logo
  • Color design
  • HMI

Just as a good piece of music
consists of more than just verses and chorus, for us a good design includes not
only the contours and proportions with their defined surfaces, edges and lines
and the colors assigned to them, but above all an intuitive human-machine
interface that fits the application. Multisensory technology and supporting
product graphics as well as a clearly defined CMF strategy for surfaces,
materials and colors complement this to create an overall composition. All in
all, these are the details that provide lasting inspiration, even after
repeated viewing and use.

To this end, we have built up an
extensive materials laboratory in which we have collected reference samples and
a wide variety of manufacturing processes and surface finishes, which help us
to define the product and industry-specific quality details in dialog with the

Our toolbox for design aesthetics is the BUSSE ID system. The 8 levels of design serve different dimensions of impact, so that the combination of design levels extends across the field of tension between long-distance and close-up effects.

„Child seats are not only visually complex but also technically demanding. Our longstanding partnership with BUSSE turns development into a creative experience. Design sprints and a versatile selection matrix relieve engineers, minimize time-consuming iterations. We appreciate BUSSE for their timely implementations despite limited resources. The collaboration is not only effective but also truly enjoyable!"



"We were particularly impressed by the enthusiasm and technical creativity of the Busse employees. The atmosphere in the project was characterized by professional looseness and great agility. We turned an idea into a finished product in 4 months!"



„We discovered BUSSE Design+Engineering through online research. Contacting them for a functional model led to a contract for a technical redesign. Due to our concept changes, Redesign II was initiated and realized in a prototype, earning a golden award at the 2019 Ambiente trade fair. BUSSE executed the project with precision, on schedule, and with excellent craftsmanship. We look forward to future collaboration with BUSSE."



„The collaboration with the entire project team was always goal-oriented, constructive and pleasant in terms of communication. Mr. Timm and his project team always kept the functional and safety requirements in mind and understood what is also important to us in product development: can-do mentality, agile mindset as well as flexibility and efficiency in all project situations."



"With BUSSE as a sparring partner, we were able to successfully work out a brand-defining design for our latest products that was appropriate for the target group. BUSSE understood our internal company processes very well and was therefore able to deliver optimal results. Deadlines were always met, you can rely on BUSSE. Anytime again!"



"We were positively surprised by the collaboration with BUSSE in that the focus was not solely on the appearance of our product, but rather on the interplay of economical manufacturing solutions, optimized ergonomics and a functional design. The result now impresses with a coherent, unprecedented design concept."
