Interview with Arnošt Vespalec on Workswell Wiris Thermal imaging system

What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
The primary use was and is for flying drones. So the inspiration was aerospace = new technology. And you know ... I like Star Wars ;-)
What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
Hard to say, but I love the nature and mechanisms hidden in it. Such mechanisms, which most people can not feel. Such mechanisms are not visible but are there.
Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
How to tell it right way :D. Everythin what man created wasn´t his own work. Everythink is about your thinking, and streams of thought you know. This design pass of iteration process and has been corrected many times. The design was pushed forward by many people and many people was pushed by that forward too. I know the final part was mine, but otherwise it´s team work :).
Who is the target customer for his design?
Everyone who need to measure temperature and like this design. It depends on customer.
What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?
That it was made by Czech people and simple and clear design is better then complex one.
How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
WIRIS = Workswell InfraRed Imaging System ... I like it ... the right Pronunciation is by the Slav language, please don't even try to Pronounce it like English or American people.
What is the most unique aspect of your design?
Balance between function, design and manufacture. I like simple design, because simple is more.
Who did you collaborate with for this design? Did you work with people with technical / specialized skills?
Yes of course, every designer have to work with scientist, engineers that works in another branges. We can learn from each other many things that move us further.
What is the role of technology in this particular design?
Production technology had a big role ... what I´d be such a designer who doesn't know the manufacture technology?
What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
Construction, weight of product, mterials, technology of manufacturing, etc...
What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
Man learns throughout life and I learned a lot thanks this project. But mainly it was about communicating and understanding with each other, (electrical engineers, manufacturers, supply, etc...)
