ABOUT US

Glitch Factory is a spin-off company of the University of Siena (Italy) with expertise in the design, development and evaluation of interactive technologies including tangible interfaces, wearable systems and Internet of Things devices and services.

 

The company was established in 2015 in Siena by a multidisciplinary team of professionals with competencies in product and interaction design, engineering, and experimental psychology.

TANGIBLE INTERFACES

We develop tangible user interfaces that allow the physical manipulation of digital information, making their use simple, pleasurable, natural and appealing

INTERACTION DESIGN

We design and manufacture products and services by putting people at the center of the design process

EXPERIENCE DESIGN

Aesthetic, engagement, branding and innovation are our keywords to design and evaluate the user experience

PRODUCT DESIGN

We design and build beautiful and innovative design objects that interface with the digital world




VISION

Glitch Factory support clients in envisioning new products by managing the entire development cycle from concept design (user research, context analysis and requirements) until the proof of concept (prototyping, testing in the field and engineering solutions).

 

In doing so, we adopt a human-centred design approach gaining deep empathy for those we serve, prototyping tailored solutions and ensuring the solutions we co-create with our partners reach the desidered impact.
