Background

With such dramatic shifts in work patterns caused by Covid, how do you design a more comfortable mouse that meets the fresh challenges of working from home? Great design begins with a clear sense of purpose, so we collaborated with Logitech to define a brief around digital wellness that is highly accessible. We wanted to design and engineer a solution that brings the trackball to the mainstream, an important step in the drive towards home comfort. More and more of us are working from home, transforming our living areas into workspaces. The Ergo M575 wireless trackball can stay stationary as you work, so is perfect for limited desk space. It is ergonomically designed for ultimate comfort over long hours of working and scrolling, preventing fatigue in the hand and arm.

 

Story

Accessibility is at the heart of our approach. By introducing a high level of comfort in a simple, gender-neutral design, we are appealing to the broadest audience possible. The design process focused on what mattered most for people working from home and no additional details or features were added – this led to a purity of design with a high level of comfort. In partnership with Logitech, we have ensured that the product is made from as much post-consumer recycled plastic as possible, helping drastically reduced its carbon footprint. Design Partners’ mission is to Elevate Human Potential, and for the new era of home working our collaborative goal was to bring digital wellness to people in an inclusive way.

 

 

Outcome

As well as receiving excellent customer reviews (9.2/10 in RelaxedTech, 4.7/5 Amazon) the Logitech ERGO M575 Wireless Trackball has been commended in FORBES Magazine for its aesthetics and ergonomics, stating, “The splendid Ergo M575 is a beautifully sculpted device that fits perfectly under the palm of my hand“. The trackball has also been awarded the prestigious GOOD DESIGN AWARD and iF DESIGN AWARD. Design Partners and Logitech continue their longstanding strategic relationship in design and innovation, creating some of the world’s best-loved gamingproductivity, and creativity tools together.
