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

RONDOpro represents the next step in minimalist desk-lamp design, featuring precise lines and attention to details to make this lamp timeless-looking and ensuring you can enjoy it for a long time. 

RONDOpro, created with humanistic technology, is the newest evolution in illumination. It delivers professional lighting solutions for all your needs and most importantly helps to preserve users’ eye health.

 RONDOpro’s motion detectors signal's the user with its unique blink, notifying users to turn the light on and keeping the illumination going until the lamp no longer detects motion. When that happens, RONDOpro turns itself off. Even then, the “smart-night” feature gives off a bit more light so that the user can safely get out of the office – or, for home use, get into bed safely.

Today’s design trends tend to fade away very fast. 

We like a clean minimalistic geometric design. This type of design doesn’t get old and will stay interesting for a long time.  

This desk lamp is something you can keep using for years that won’t look dated, even with our rapidly changing technology. 

So, we know you can, and will, enjoy RONDOpro for the years to come.

RONDOpro has a minimal footprint, taking less space on the table while illuminating a large area and giving you a lot more space to work with on your desk.

Aluminum is a great material: It's strong, it's light, it's long-lasting and is also fully recyclable, but we chose it because of the finish. Milled aluminum is the choice for our material, which provides for a high level of accuracy in designing stunningly precise precision parts.  
For the colors, the choice is snow white & a stealth black powder coating for all RONDOpro founders. People who select the Origins limited edition can also choose precision dark black hard anodize.

Risks and challenges

We don't know everything
But we do know and can promise you three things:
First - We'll be brutally honest with you. If we'll make a mess, we'll tell you, if we succeed we'll share it with you. This means our backers will be happy and proud to support our company.
Second - We'll never let you get to the point when you feel we disappeared, although, we do hope you will understand a startup company with limited resources does not have a 50-person support team, we promise to try to answer any questions and requests as fast as we can.
You can see from our timeline, we don't sugarcoat anything.
It took a long time to get here.
And by the way, the greatest designs in history took time.
Tolomeo & Tizio lamps took years of development, and the Eames lounge chair and ottoman supposedly took 16 years to design, so it’s perfectly normal.
Great design takes time.

So, it took so long to get here, so why do we think we can our product to you so much faster?
Simply because that is why it took so long.
We tested any angel, every part and lots of manufacturers.
It is customary to take about three questions for a part to get approved
We took more than double.
We test and build models for every scenario
Not only for you, the client, but for us! This is our reputation on the line, one shot to do it.
For you, it’s your hard-earned money.
Which leads to our third promise: We'll do anything and go anywhere in the world so that in the end you will get something that will give you a lot of joy and pride to own and be a part of.
Software - we wrote every line of code, we know how to change each line, and what it will do.
The parts - we milled each and every one of them ourselves physically – programming the G-code, operating the machines, loading the materials and milling the parts.
Of course, we will outsource them and we have lots of experience at that, too.
We believe knowing every little piece of the picture gives us a bigger chance at success.

So, what is your reward?
Simply to be the first!
Be the founders of a new company, and own the first products that it produces!

if you support us we ain't going to stop producing great uncompromising products, the like of this great platform produce from time to time.
