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.
Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.
Looks like the final product, but is not functional.
Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.
Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The first prototype was built here in my house by me and my father who came from Italy on vacation.
After the idea to revisit a fun vintage video game as furniture system we needed to started to see if we could easily build one. The first big challenge was building the prototype in the house trying to keep the
cost low. We used a drill, a saw and some screws. We left one side open and the
other one could be removed to try to make it more functional as storage too.
Beside the construction the design process was simple and fun.
It was a good starting point I still use the prototype in my place and I cane their configuration every time I need too or just for fun if I get bored of the look of my living room.
After the first prototypes there were many issues to resolve like materials and flat packaging. It was a long process of trial and error with the collaboration of friends, wood makers and manufacturing companies.
