Coffee & Material Samples

Our R&D process continues!

While leather is a practical and beautiful material option for the Vega Edge, we have long realized that it does not meet everyone's needs or wants. We were planning to introduce some alternatives in the next version of the Edge but due to a growing interest we're moving this higher up our To Do list.

This week I'm in NYC with my Digital Futures class from OCADU and it proved to be a great opportunity to meet for coffee with an innovative textile studio from Brooklyn that might be able to supply us with a suitable material alternative.

I won't say too much yet, but this material is natural, non-toxic, and handcrafted. Next step is to bring these home to Toronto, run tests with the laser cutter, and put it through our assembly process. 

No promises yet but we have our fingers crossed! We'll keep you posted.
