Taking on market leaders through clever design and engineering

Zgonic engaged Cobalt Design to create a monitor arm that would help foster a healthy workspace with a pure design, minimalist methodology and a hint of playfulness. The key challenges were to create a new product that outperformed its internationally acclaimed competitors and had tool-less installation and adjustment, a feature that had not been offered before.

The result is a computer monitor arm that offers tangible ergonomic and productivity benefits allowing users to accommodate posture, comfort, and positioning, as the monitor can adjust to virtually any position.

The project was developed within an ultra-compressed timeframe and used a full range of design and engineering resources. From research of commercial furniture trends, concepts were refined and engineered through to production all within 11 months.
