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.

Furniture Evolving
Furniture Evolving

Production and Team 

The production team will grow with furniture demand, right now it's just me! At a small scale, I cut all my pieces by hand with a router, jigsaw and table-saw. I would like to cut down 50% of the work and have all furniture pieces cut with a CNC machine. This will be more time effective and help reduce prices, making the furniture more affordable for everyone. 

The work on a CNC machine will be contracted out until the business grows to purchase one of its own. Keep in mind the CNC machine does 50% of the work the rest is done by hand! I have designed many templates and jigs to assure accuracy with all hand-work and for consistency when training new team members.

I will be providing local jobs to a team on Salt Spring Island instead of having my furniture built overseas at unethical wages of 5c/hr (96% of furniture today).

Founder Ewelina E. Pankowska

Thank you for supporting my work towards forest preservation and the reduction of global furniture waste. Also a huge thank you to everyone who has helped me make this dream a reality. :) 

Risks and challenges

If the goal is not met for funding there will be no need for hiring a production team/CNC machining parts and I will build the furniture myself. You will be contacted following campaign end. All fund profits will go towards the website.

If the goal exceeds $30,000 CAD fund profits will go towards expanding the production team and workshop space.
