The Challenge

Good design is integral to the furniture industry—not only in appearance, but structurally as well. One client asked us to take their prototype design for a revolutionary new task chair and make it production-ready.

Our Solution

The final design weighed less than 30% of the original while maintaining all of its original functionality. In addition, we were able to lower the cost by roughly 30% and improve the piece’s overall aesthetics.
