Equitable, flexible, perceivable, accessible, appropriate, intuitive, comfortable, tolerant and: attractive
Freely quoted from the principles of Universal Design / Design for All / Inclusive Design.
An inclusive designapproach is embedded within all our design and development processes. The result: products and environments that are better designed, attractive, satisfying and easy to use for everyone.
"The design of mainstream products and/or services that are accessible to, and usable by,
as many people as reasonably possible (...) without the need for special adaptation or specialised design."
British Standard 7000-6:2005, Design Management Systems, Managing Inclusive Design-Guide

2006 Veronika Egger co-founded the organisation design for all.
Here the competences and abilities of various disciplines join forces to create buildings, public spaces,
information and products that are accessible and usable for all. We are architects, designers, craftsmen, communicators, and other disciplines who shape the environment.
