Ever wondered how our products go from an idea to a reality? Luckily, we design and manufacture all of our products on site, and have sat down with our Head of Design, Dariusz, to ask him some of your questions:

How long have you worked with S&S Northern?  I have worked with S&S Northern since 2004, so for 14 years.

What is a fun fact about you?  Something that not many people know about me is that I used to play professional handball for Poland.

How many products have you designed for S&S Northern? I have designed 56 products in total for S&S Northern – this number shocked me too!

What is your favourite thing about product design?  Definitely the challenge, I love problem solving and product design is like doing a puzzle.

Which S&S Northern panel are you most proud of? I am most proud of the CT1750 because it is one of the most complicated.

How long does it take to design a panel? On average, it takes around a month to design one product.

What is your design process? My design process starts with research in order to find out if what I want to do is possible, then once I know what to do I put everything together and test my theory. If it does not work I go back and correct it, if it does work I pass it on for manufacturing here on site.

What is the most challenging thing about designing products? The most challenging thing is keeping up with evolving technologies. It is so important to be up to date so we always stay ahead of our competition in this industry.

If you could have designed anything that exists today what would it be and why? This is a hard one! However, as I love coffee so much I would love to have designed a fancy coffee machine.
