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.

BriQ is a plastic injection module that multiplies to create partitions or wall decorations. This small element, evocative of building materials, creates the look of a brick wall in the room. It aims to foster a warmer atmosphere in our homes by giving them a personal touch through unlimited design possibilities. Its simple "T" shape and its small size make it easy to install.

The modules are assembled by a simple Lego-like snapping system, which is sufficient to build a strong and rigid set. The usage of this system also makes decoration more amusing and is reminiscent of the childhood activity of playing with building sets.

On the wall, the modules can add character to a room. Their brick-like aesthetic allow your walls to become a central part of your decoration. The wall will allow you to place the modules randomly and creatively, and to leave the bricks spread in the room according to individual tastes. Some will choose more regular brick-inspired designs, while others can play with its numerous creative possibilities. In all cases, BriQ allows you to have a unique decoration in a original and fun way!  

Thanks to the "T" modules' light weight and rigidity, a panel of 50 modules can be perfectly fixed with only two attachment points.

By forming a partition, the "T" modules can be mounted to make a wall, splitting an area into two while keeping its luminosity and depth. In a professional setting, it can be used in an open space to separate the different offices or delineate meeting rooms, lounges, or reception areas. It can also be used in a restaurant to separate tables or in the background display of a shop. At home, the BriQ wall also fits perfectly to separate the living room from the dining room, or to isolate the TV area or the office from the rest of the room.  

When separating spaces, BriQ is fixed to the ceiling with small fasteners that snap onto the module. These small fasteners are provided in all kits. The fasteners can be attached to the ceiling with a material such as a nylon thread.

The modules are available in different colors. For the launch of the concept, we chose to develop four that can adapt to any room's colors and needs. The black and white are certainly essential and sober but can have a strong influence on contrasts, they blend well with all colors. The red, like the color of bricks, is perfect to energize a place where whites are dominant. Finally, the blue is discreet, neutral and versatile.

Materials: Injection molded plastic (ABS)

Weight: Approximately 15 grams per T, or 750 grams per 50 T's

Dimensions: 15 cm width x 7 cm height per T  

Aspect: soft Colors: White, Black, Red and Blue 

In all kits two small accessories are provided in addition to the "T"s. First, the fastener is positioned on the upper parts of the sets, to facilitate attaching the T's. The second is a small stud that helps, in certain modes, to stabilize the set. 

BriQ is easily attached. In wall decoration mode, mount the whole set on a table and then fix it to the wall with nails to slide into the fasteners provided. If it is not possible to put a nail in the wall, a double-sided adhesive tape placed directly on the "T" will also work very well. Depending on the structure created, it takes one attachment point on the wall to hold about 25 T's. 

To use BriQ as a space separator, use two to three fasteners for the 100 T's provided in the kits. On the upper part of the whole set, attach some hooks to the ceiling, or if it is not possible to drill use a double-sided adhesive tape and attach everything with an invisible nylon thread.

 

 

 

Before attaching the modules, experience BriQ in augmented reality. Download the "Augment" application on your Apple or Android phone. Print the BriQ logo below, place it where you want, and run the application.

Florian and Jean-Baptiste met at the end of 2016 during a design meeting organized by Plasticem. They got along instantly, and early in January they launched a project to create and design an innovative product 100% manufactured in France in Plastisem's plastic injection workshops. After lots of research and exchanges, BriQ's T shaped module emerged! Jean-Baptiste carried out the 3D design, Benoit and Jeremy shared their knowledge on the choice of materials and clips, Florian made and mounted more than 150 prototypes to validate the product’s technical elements, and Theo and Charly made the video.  

The motivation and the professionalism of the team have resulted in the timely launch of our Kickstarter, which was essential to start BriQ's production line.

BRIQ - CONCEPTION AND PROTOTYPING
BRIQ - CONCEPTION AND PROTOTYPING
Florian Lefebvre: Director of Kitarnes (legal entity of BriQ) and Plastisem (manufacturer for this project). "For me, this project is a real personal challenge. Although I am an industrial entrepreneur, it allows me to enter an exciting creative field, and I had never had the opportunity to experience such an adventure to create a new product. I cannot wait to start the production of these modules, and thank you so much for your support in making this project real!"

Jean-Baptiste Ricatte: Product Designer.  "As a specialist in the furniture business, I had the opportunity to collaborate with leading design editors like Roche Bobois or Cinna. The BriQ project is an opportunity for me to engage in a different approach that uses the constraints of the plastic injection process as a creative lever. It is also an opportunity to develop a project from A to Z, which is very motivating and rewarding."  

Thanks to Benoit and Jeremy for their support in plastics processing, and to Theo and Charly for communication support.

Risks and challenges

We are confident we can deliver the kits on time because the BriQ project is done in association with Plastisem, a plastic injection molding company specializing in technical and innovative projects. The company has an internal design office, manufacturing tools, and plastic injection technology, which greatly limit the production risks.
The main points that may cause a slight delay in delivering the parts are:
- Adjusting the attaching effect between the elements.
- Adjusting the injection process.
- Time required to schedule the molding workshop.
