Dolmen & Novaerus
Dolmen is a Dublin based creative design and innovation consultancy that discovers, develops and delivers new products by combining innovation strategies with creative design thinking. For the past 24 years they have been developing award-winning, intellectual property-rich new products and experiences for a diverse range of industries, ranging from medical devices and consumer products to information and communication technology and fast-moving consumer goods. Key clients include Diageo, ASH, ACT, Hollister, Stryker, Covidien, and Medtronic.
The core of Dolmen’s work is centred around a proven strategic design thinking process, which comprises a variety of tools and methodologies that are adapted to customers’ requirements and result in uncovering unmet and unarticulated needs in the end user. This is followed by intensive work by a highly creative design team, designing products from the inside out, and delivering products to clients that win in the marketplace.
Novaerus is the first plasma system for airborne infection control. It uses a low-energy patented plasma that is stable, reproducible, containable and highly destructive to the microorganisms that enter its field. Its plasma requires no maintenance and works 24 hours a day to eradicate airborne viruses, bacteria, mould, allergens and odours, essentially cleaning the air and creating a healthier environment. By reducing the presence of these pathogens in the air, healthcare facilities can significantly lower the risk of infectious outbreaks.
Sarah Bowie has collaborated with Dolmen and Novaerus to create a playful yet informative illustrated poster helping explain their collaboration.
