As a manufacturer of bicycle helmets in Germany, KED has been relying on DQBD for several years now. In addition to the concepts and ideas, we particularly benefit from the straightforward implementation through all steps of a project. The cooperation with DQBD is characterized by the commitment and expertise of the entire team. DQBD has consequently evolved our design language.

DQBD has a deep knowledge in the design of innovative protection gear for sports equipment. I’m convinced, this in combination with our virtual engineering services and 3D printing materials will move this industry forward!

We have been delighted to learn how Sebastian Hess and his innovative team at DQBD utilized SAF™ technology and the H350™ 3D printer to additive manufacture a load-bearing cycling saddle, the first of its kind. They have been extremely forthcoming with their time and professional expertise to align together for various projects and presentations that highlight this creation.

DQBD: that means superb communication & dialogue with the team, rapid movements and quick response times, accurate and detailed work, professional look and feel of the designs – and the team is always there when we need them!

Marcus Bergman
MIPS AB, Sweden

I chose to work with Sebastian and his great team at DQBD because I needed a team that was technically set up to help me do better than if I tried to “do it myself.” As a designer, your first thought is to be 100% of the process. In this case what I needed the most was a creative and industrial design team that I could collaborate to really unlock my vision.
DQBD really helped me do that.

Matt Harkins

Industrial creativity is nothing without a real shape … that’s why we all need a bit of DQBD.

Nicola Bolzonello

DQBD is a team of open minded people that are easy to work and reach a common goal with.
I have particularly appreciated your vision, your creativity and initiative, your highly critical approach and practical sense, as well as your autonomy to manage the job. In short, a partner to look for and a group of nice friends.
