About

What is a typical Trivet?

A trivet is an object placed between a serving dish or bowl at a dining table – usually to protect the table from heat damage. Trivets have been designed many times over ranging from traditional to modern. However, modern designs have yet to be coupled with modern materials.

Our Grate Trivet is designed to compliment a modern lifestyle. The playful design mimics a stove grate and is accented with an elegant circular-brushed aluminum center and will also be a color accessory to any kitchen!

TIMELINE

Risks and challenges

We have a firm grasp of all the risk and challenges that may present itself throughout our campaigning and production process. However, that is not to say that every single phase will be smooth sailing. We need to be prepared for any possible outcomes to ensure that every step we take is progressive, and is keeping us in track with all the phases that need execution.

Nevertheless, some of our risks include:

-Manufacturing: We have spent a huge chunk of time figuring out which material was best suitable for testing and production. At first, Nylon and Poly-carbonate material was used but after countless hours of heat resistance testing, we found that Polypheyline Sulfide + 30% glass fiber, was the best suitable material in terms of heat protection, and durability of the injection molding process.

As the Grate Trivet gears for production, there will likely be minor adjustments to accommodate the final product. Unforeseen risks may cause delays in fulfilling the rewards. In order to better prepare for any situation, we have established a strong relationships with our manufacturers with proven records and experience.

Rewards & Fulfillment: We have concrete plans to fulfill the rewards based on the delivery date. The team will be pushing hard to start production in October and delivery the rewards by January 2015. We will keep our supporters in the loop throughout the necessary steps & phases of development and production process.
