What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The easiest and by far most elegant folding furniture. Featuring a unique ergonomic design that saves space and is easy to set up, the Sofi Folding Lounger is your solution to enjoying those beautiful summer days where and when you want. And because its weather-resistant, UV, and fad protected, you know that you’ll be able to use it time and time again.

Most lounge chairs are difficult to move and take up so much of your home’s space. Whenever you want to enjoy the sun or catch up on your reading, they flip over and move if you lean on them the wrong way.

If you live in an apartment or have a crowded balcony you can have similar issues as well. Constantly having to maneuver large bulky patio furniture on and off of the balcony based on the weather is a hassle that no one wants to deal with. Stop wasting time and energy!

With the Sofi Folding Lounger you can finally have a modern, space saving, and stress free solution to that old furniture problem.

The Sofi Folding Loungers ergonomic shape adds to its unique construction. Using tension ropes with anchors attached, the Sofi Folding Lounge can be mounted quickly when you need it and rolls up easily when you don’t!

The mounting is quite simple: Remove Sofi Folding Lounger from the handy carrying case, roll out the lounger in front of you, fold up the left and right side, fix the sides with the both lashing straps and flip it over. Throw on the cushions and you are ready to relax!

    

Sofi Folding Lounger is light enough for anyone to move and can be set up within a few minutes. The sleek and elegant easy to construct design of Sofi Folding Lounger add a Modern touch to any home. Relax in style and Comfort with the Sofie Lounger!

Designed by a master carpenter, The Sofi Folding Lounger is expertly crafted from high quality polished birchwood. An extremely hard wearing PVC-truck tarpaulin gives the Sofi Folding Lounger a unique naturalness that makes it especially resistant to environmental influences. The Sofi Folding Lounger is also enhanced with durable UV protected material that prevents sun and weather damage.

The Sofi Folding Lounger is the perfect solution to getting the most out of sunny days! The easy to carry and fast set up of Sofi Folding Lounger is made simple by its one-of-a-kind ergonomic design that goes with you anywhere and everywhere. Don't miss those days at the park soaking up the sun with friends because your furniture doesn't come with you! Don't keep yourself inside all day because your patio furniture just isn't comfortable! With Sofi Folding Lounger you can have a comfortable and cushioned piece of furniture that is stylish in and out of your house! Take back your sunny days with Sofi Folding Lounger! 

The Sofi Lounger is made from specially polished birchwood that is soft, safe and durable. It is light enough for anyone to be able to move, fold, and roll. This gives the Sofi Folding Lounger an incredible set time of under 2 minutes! The design coupled with the beautiful polished birchwood and weather resistant Decor Nubuk futon topper adds a beautiful and comfortable touch to any home, patio, or balcony!

This lounger is truly like no other! When not being used as a relaxing chair or a stunning piece of decor, Sofi Folding Lounger can be unfolded and rolled flat to store under a bed or in a closet in no time at all! We’ve even included a special DuPont Tyvek material made bag with drawstring that makes storing easier!

The Sofi Folding Lounger draws its inspiration from a tambour. Traditionally the tambour, a flexible surface made of woods slats adhered to a textile canvas, is used in roll top desks. We were inspired by the unique movement and shapeshifting abilities and thus created the most innovative reclining chair on the market, The Sofi Lounger!

Go outside and enjoy the sun whenever there is nice weather and avoid the hassle of moving bulky furniture. Take Sofi Folding Lounger out for any occasion and then put it back the second you are done.

Enjoy world class comfort on the therapeutic Decor Nubuk cushion in minutes while you relax the day away in style!

                

The Sofi also features a removable side pocket so you can keep your valuables safe when you are outside, or, attach it indoors as handy storage for books, phones, glasses, and remotes. Keep yourself warm and your items protected with the Sofi Folding Lounger!

Discover the advantages of changing your home’s layout on a whim in minutes. Create exquisite lounge space for parties or events or set up Sofi Folding Lounge so you can sunbathe in that perfect corner with a book. Remember, when you don't need the Sofi, you can fold it flat and roll it up for easy storage in minutes! The Sofi Folding Lounge will add flair and style to any room with its polished birchwood finish and it unique ergonomic shape.

Add a touch of modern European elegance and design to your apartment, home, condo, patio, gazebo, front yard, back yard, or balcony with The Sofi Folding Lounger. 

The Sofi Folding Lounger is a must have for homes and business. With its polished birchwood finish and sleek ergonomic design it looks great indoors and adds a touch of style to any room. Because the Sofi Folding Chair is enhanced with PVC materials that add a UV and fade resistant quality, so you know that it will hold up to weather, use, and mobility.

The Sofi Folding Lounger isn't just designed for style. Its advanced ergonomic shape and hiqh quality construction give a robust area for lounging. With lumbar supporting contours and cushions, Sofi Folding Lounge is perfect for short breaks and long naps!

It not hard to see how our emphasis on sharp design and unparalleled comfort make the Sofi Folding Lounger both an environmentally friendly and state-of-the-art piece of furniture. Say yes to The Sofi and start relaxing today!

                
                

The best thing about the Sofi Folding Lounger is the money you save when you purchase it. Take a look at the cost for renting a sunbed below:

Sunbed Rental 1 Day = 15$

At that price, renting a sunbed or patio furniture to enjoy the great weather can cost an arm and a leg. For a two week rental you could be paying over $200! That is a steep price to pay to enjoy the sun for a handful of times. The Sofi Folding Lounger is priced at $149 saving you money all summer long! After two weeks the Sofi Folding Lounger has paid for itself!

“As a master carpenter I had to invent some exciting new engineering processes along the way and reinvented the relaxing furniture. I think there’s a better way to rest and so almost everything about our longer is different. The Sofi lounger is the most sophisticated relaxing deck-chair in the world and the simplest.” - Valdis Pauls (Master Carpenter).

Risks and challenges

The world makes making stuff look easy. But manufacturing a highly engineered kinetic object at scale is complex and requires a trusted team, vetted vendors, and a fastidious grasp of the product (if one aspires to quality and safety, at least).

Challenges and unforeseen obstacles can always arise when trying to introduce a new product. There is simply so much to manage at times. However, we are confident in our abilities, knowledge, and work ethic to get the job done right. We believe in being completely transparent with our backers. We will work hard to ensure that we deliver what we promise and to go the extra mile. Thank you so much for your support and for believing in us!
