Industrial Design Story

Having obtained the rare opportunity for an Xbox officially licensed product range, the Surge team wanted a distinctive yet flexible design language that could carry across many different product types.

Working through several rounds of Microsoft committee approvals, Fuel’s design team needed to strike a balance between feeling familiar and relatable to the current generation of Xbox consoles, while creating something exciting and uniquely identifiable for Surge.

The Microwatt is the first product to launch from the Livewire family with more products following on soon.
