About this project
We proudly present LookRolls!
Whether at home, at work, at school, or a restaurant you've definitely come across many types of toilet paper roll holders. When brainstorming for this project our biggest challenge was in how we were going to transform our envisioned concept into a fully functional product meant for everyday use. We needed to find the right balance between a visually pleasing, useful, and likable product all the while making sure it was also efficient. We fully stand behind our product and hope that our recently developed prototype will find a home in your bathroom.
May this unique toilet paper roll holder bring inspiration, fun, and design elements to your bathroom experience. Prior to the production of the prototype one of the main challenges we faced was with figuring out the mechanics of the holder application as well as the attachment of the holder to the background.
We solved this problem by attaching the holder to the background with plastic screws and with the help of a plastic pad (washer). We feel that we have also found the ideal manufacturing partners for developing the different background graphics and holders. We have made a conscious choice to only work with people we know and trust ensuring that the job gets done right. No off-shore sourcing. We pride ourselves on quality workmanship and bringing back top quality American manufacturing. Production process – The initial cartoon drawings for the background are cut to size and are made out of PVC which are produced in the USA.
The background then goes to a different company for another type of printing process where the actual animation graphic is applied. This process impregnates the surface and it becomes completely waterproof. The plastic holders are also manufactured at a separate facility where a special tool, specifically designed for this project, is used to make a plastic mold for our custom designed holders.
And the most important information is that when you set up LookRolls at your choosen place you do not need to drill the wall because we have designed our product to install with double-sided tape. With your support we hope to make LookRolls become more than just a prototype and a cute design but to make it available to everyone looking for something more in bathroom design.
Options LookRolls are currently available in four different character/figure backgrounds: owl (female/male), hippo and panda. However, we are already working on several other creative solutions to offer the widest range of innovative design possibilities for our customers. Why Kickstarter? Why do we need you a as precious backer? With your help, we will be able to fund the first stage of high production necessary in making LookRolls. We’re working hard to raise enough money to put forth a production run of 2000 LookRolls.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is delivering on schedule. From experience, we've found that having a working prototype is not enough. In order to accurately calculate manufacturing time, a production run is needed. We've fine tuned this process and planned accordingly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
