Dataflex

High attention for a low involvement product

Dataflex is a leading manufacturer and supplier of ergonomic workplace accessories, such as computer monitor arms. The company specializes in various collections of monitor arm systems, for professional as well as home users all over the world.

The family business was recently acquired from father to sons, and developed rapidly from an importer and retailer to a design-driven manufacturer of independently developed sustainable products.

Dataflex consulted SILO to assist the company in the process of change, which showed that almost everything in the field of branding and communication needed to be revised.

Action

A monitor arm is a low-involvement product. It helps you to work comfortably, but how to get attention for this functional and ergonomic product?

The starting point for the brand essence of Dataflex is a comfortable and healthy workplace for everyone. A workplace where you feel at home and can get the best out of yourself. Therefore maximum adjustability is essential.

SILO developed a visual language with a touch of modularity, flexibility and adjustability. The principle consists of a ‘connector’, with the x from the word Dataflex as joints, swivel and adjustable in any desired composition.
