We just got in our first sample of the updated headboard packaging and we think it looks great! It’s always fun to see how the packages develop from the blank prototype to the production version with full printed graphics and production pieces inside.
The new packaging lookin’ amazing!
Prototype boxes and headboard hardware for test fitting
We’ve been working on a sofa! We began the design process earlier this year, starting with some concept sketching and brainstorming to determine the design constraints we wanted to work within. As with any product we design, the sofa has to look amazing, be super easy to assemble and take apart, and be made with high-quality materials, and be able to be shipped flat pack in just a few boxes. Here are some of our initial concept sketches as we began the development process!
We got a couple of prototypes of the X-brace for the shelf fabricated at a local shop. After chatting with our main steel manufacturer, however, we realized we needed to simplify the design of the wires to reduce the number of pieces and amount of welding. We’re using some pink string we had in the lab to mockup wire paths.
Sometimes something as analog as string is the best tool for the job
