It may look clean and unassuming, but there’s actually a lot going on inside the CubeOne, a rubber tensile and tear testing robot built for measuring stress and strain. The top window and tray light indicator give users confidence that tests are going smoothly while internal cameras record every move. The software-hardware combo is friendly to use for new and veteran operators alike. Using renewable and durable materials, it’s built to withstand years of service, scale with future product lines and seamlessly fit into a lab or office setting – all while meeting strict certification standards.

Hofer Studio was founded by Joseph Hofer, a multiple award-winning Canadian industrial designer and design partner. The studio approaches design projects with the user at the forefront, innovating the experience, and building with quality to celebrate and communicate a product's meaning and use.
