Ulstein Bridge Visions



UBV is a design practice driven research project. By actively participating in the development of an innovative new control bridge for large ships, we seek to investigate design practice in context of Norwegian maritime sector. The goal is to develop both an understanding of and developing strategies for the inclusion of experience oriented industrial and interaction design practice inside large scale maritime projects. Central in UBV is to incorporate design practitioners holistic approach to product experiences which includes aesthetical and personal aspects in addition to function and usability considerations.
