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.

About

Egg + Yin Yang, the new recipe, not for cooking but for Design!
Egg + Yin Yang, the new recipe, not for cooking but for Design!

Kupletto is not only a single object. It's a concept. It was designed to save space, and putting 2 products together into lots of combinations. Having Kupletto chairs at home is not like owning any other piece of furniture, it’s a whole experience. Changing combinations almost feels like a game. Kupletto offers at least 3 different combinations: it can be a coffee table, a cupboard (or pedestal table or 2 separate chairs. You can also have 3 combinations (or more) with the 2 low-stools. You can transform your interior every day according to your needs.

Coming in around 7kgs for the chair alone and 3kgs for the cupboard, Kupletto doesn’t weigh much. Furthermore the way it is designed helps moving it around, without having to lift it. The back curve of the chair is precisely conceived to allow switching it back up or down effortlessly. Handling the chair is very easy thanks to the location of the handholds, smartly placed around both sides of the chair. If you really need to move it from one location to another, the back handhold is convenient to pick up the chair. Kupletto was designed for an ergonomic seating. It complies standard seating rules.

The perfect fit !
The perfect fit !

The shape was designed to allow the two chairs to fit perfectly and create either a coffee table or a cupboard. The 8.6° angle on the back of the chair is the exact same angle as on the bottom of the chair. It's the perfect angle to ensure the stability & ergonomy of the chair. Imagine how muchroom you can save thanks to this concept! Instead of constantly having your table in the middle of your living room, you can set up your Kupletto as an elegant storage alternative until its next use as a table. It's the perfect option for maximizing floor space and enjoying every combination.

From the first wood prototype, we switched to a concept in cardboard and then in PSE. From these trials, we decided to go ahead with PE. Nowadays, it seems a lot easier to launch a brand new product thanks to social networks & the transportation development. But in the meantime, with people buying more and more things, the profusion of products will minimize the space. Having enough space will be a bigger and bigger issue and that’s why our transformable furniture is an answer to current trends.

As designers and engineers, the team integrates the smart use of plastic material with esthetics to enhance versatility and functionality. A modular chair shouldn't be housebound. Kupletto can be used either inside or outside. That's why we also committed to a recyclable & weather resistant material like PE. Whether it’s 80°C or pouring rain, kupletto can stay outside, it's not a problem at all. 

Plastic is fantastic !

CREATED IN PARIS - PRODUCED IN ITALY 

After a billion different design ideas, the thought of making a plastic and therefore lighter piece of furniture, and the fact that the chair could come in all different kinds of colors, and then changing the design again and again, going back to the original idea, another 4 prototypes, a tool, 2 factories, 25 flights and 150 sleepless nights, the kupletto chair was born. 

              
 

KUPLETTO'S BIRTH 

When I moved to Paris 6 years ago, I found out that everyone had a tiny house, including myself! I was living in a 20m2 studio, and there is no way around having to use a chair and a table every day. As my bedroom was also my living room, I used the bed as a chair to dine on the table, because I did not have enough space for a chair. But when friends came over, the table was unusable, and people had to seat on the bed... This was the first time I had the idea of a chair which could also be used as a table depending on my needs.

For all uses!
For all uses!

SHIPPING 

The cost is calculated according to the volume, even if kupletto was 100 kgs the price would be the same! Fortunately, Kupletto is not heavy! In fact, the volume of the packaging is the same if we send 1 or 2 chairs, because the design allows it! The real purpose to use this product as it was thought is to be not separated of its soulmate. It is a cost-effective transport, which is also environmentally responsible. That's why buying 1 or 2 chairs is the exact same cost, now it's up to you to make the right decision ;) The chair is delivered from the factory to your home directly, without any intermediate thanks to our transporter which is the leader around the world. Of course, the early birds will be served first. So, hurry up!

As we are friendly, we have made great deals with our suppliers in order to minimize the cost for the end consumer (you!). Shipping charges within Europe are 19€ and it is free for early birds ! Shipping charges outside Europe depend on your location. For example shipping charges for the US are 39€. We have preloaded shipping rates for all countries where our product can be delivered, but feel free to email us at info@kjmdesignarchitecture.com if you want to discuss it further.

Importantly, like all external delivery from the EU, you will have custom charges to pay once the product is sent to you.

Risks and challenges

The chair is made through an artisanal plastic manufacturing technique: Rotomolding.
The chair is formed from a mold within which plastic powder evenly spreads through centrifuge force. But as with all artisanal methods, each piece is unique. Unique means there is no chair that can be exactly the same as another. That's because the chair is extracted from the tool manually, and depending on certain factors like external temperature or human precision, the chair can have some deflection. Deflection can be present on all plane surfaces of the chair, and this can have a consequence on the housing of 2 Chairs. We ensure the fitting of 2 chairs with some tolerances. Moreover, the magnet in the cupboard and cover help a lot to ensure the fitting of it all. Esthetically, we are doing our best, but some marks may remain according to the artisanal method. As it's an artisanal method, handmade, we estimate a manufacturing time. We cannot know in advance when the factory is off but of course we will let you know if we have further information about any type of delay.
