Indigo Ice Machine

The Challenge

Manitowoc Ice enlisted the help Brooks Stevens to take their commercial ice machines to the next level. With our expertise, the new line of energy efficient Indigo Ice Machines feature an evolutionary visual brand language  that builds upon their legacy of quality and communicates new improvements in programming, maintenance and diagnostic interfacing.

The Solution

The Indigo removes the guesswork from the ice making process by providing constant and reliable monitoring of internal refrigeration systems. That information is used to improve energy management, set proper ice production levels, improve sanitation, maintain ice quality, and quickly display up-to-date service information. With this in mind, Brooks Stevens designed the prominent interface bezel that serves as a focal point, emphasizing the touch screen and leading the eye to the side grip for opening the front access door. The on-board management system is able to direct users to get their ice machine up and running if there is an operating issue and communicate with service techs about the status of the machine for both efficiency and safety.
