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 STORY BEHIND

We are a team of urban professionals from Hamburg, Germany from STUDIO DESSAU, a small design studio with many years of experience in the leather and bag industry.

As designers, we were in need of a more functional work bag; therefore, we created THE WINGCASE, the perfect work + overnight bag for others like us. If you share the same belief that a bag should feature a clean design, premium quality, unique functionality for work and life, this is the perfect bag for you.

This Kickstarter project was created to offer customers a premium product featuring unique and smart functionality at a reasonable price. With your generous help, we can meet the minimum order quantity to bring THE WINGCASE to life.

Thank you so much for your support! Work smart and live easy with THE WINGCASE!

 


(Color option dark brown reaching the stretch goal of €35,000/approx. $38,500) Update: Stretch goal unlocked! Now available in dark brown, too!

WHY THE WINGCASE?

  • Save time and avoid the frantic feeling of searching through your briefcase. Use one hand to quickly spread the wings of your WINGCASE in a second, when standing in line at the airport, riding your bike, driving your car or during a meeting with a business partner.

  • Use only one bag instead of two. Take out the middle compartment and THE WINGCASE becomes the perfect overnight bag for a short business trip or night at your friend's. Put larger items or your neatly ironed shirt in your WINGCASE by opening the larger of the two wings completely and detaching the side panels. Work smart, live easy.
  • Never run out of battery again. Charge and use your smartphone / tablet where ever you want, when ever you want. It makes work and life easier so you can focus on doing your job and enjoying your free time, THE WINGCASE takes care of the rest.

THE STRETCH GOALS

Upon multiple request we announce a stretch goal :

If we reach € 35,000 (approx. $ 38.500) we will add a third color option, which is dark brown. So reaching this goal all backers will be able to choose their WINGCASE, LAPTOP CASE or WASH BAG in one of these three colors: dark brown, black or tan.

UPDATE: STRETCH GOAL UNLOCKED!

Now available in dark brown, too!

Risks and challenges

We are in the business for many years, but although we are an experienced team and although we always give the best we can, there are still risks that regarding production issues and fulfillment partners we have to deal with.
It is impossible to do everything from design, prototyping, production, controlling and shipping within one company, even the global players are sourcing out. So it is our main job to control and organize all the single jobs that have to be done to secure that you will be a totally satisfied backer and future customer.
We demonstrated our skills many times before and we will work even harder for you to do it again.
