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.

Prototype Gallery

These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Every kitchen has a cutting board, but nothing quite like the teak star. Its 4cm thickness provides it with a sturdy feel. Rock n Roll your knife on the board like if on the dancing floor. The angular side-slopes aid in transporting your chopped mushrooms into the frying pan.

Every good steak needs that important resting time. Why not treat your steak to luxury by letting him rest on the teak star. The juice trenches are specifically designed to catch overflow.

When treating your friends to lunch or dinner, why not use the teak star as a serving platter. For example, why not use the teak star to cut and serve a pizza. As your guests enjoy the food, the striking design will provide no shortage of conversation.

Take your party to another level by serving your canapés on a Teak Star. The angular design will catch the attention of your friends, enabling them to fuel up between dance moves. With the teak star you will be cutting shapes all night.

Edge of Belgravia is a small but fast growing London based housewares company. We create products that combine superior materials with contemporary design to create art for the kitchen. Last year we became the #1 Chef knife campaign on Kickstarter with over 7,000 backers.

During this campaign, our backers continued to ask us for additional products. During this campaign our backers requested we develop a cutting board series. Thanks to the feedback of our backers, the Teak Star was born.

Teak wood has been used as decking on ships for centuries. The reason is that teak wood is great in wet environments. This makes it a great choice of material for a cutting board. 

Teak is a high quality material, with a gorgeous colour, yet incredibly functional. It is rot resistant, slip resistant, water resistant and durable.  This makes it the ideal kitchen companion. With the Teak Star, you can rest well knowing you will have a beautiful star in the kitchen.

We source our teak wood from plantations to ensure that for every tree cut, another will be planted in its place. We have a good relationship with our manufacturer based in Guangdong, and we have worked with them in the past. We are leveraging this relationship to create the Teak Star.

 This project is promoted by Jellop, a direct response online advertising agency specializing in Kickstarter campaigns on Facebook Ads and Google AdWords.

Risks and challenges

We fully established relationships with some of the top factories and have worked with them on numerous projects over the past 8 years. Last year, we became the most funded Chef Knife campaign ever, and have successfully delivered to our backers. We are leveraging this experience along with our relationships with top manufacturers to provide our backers with high quality products at an affordable price.
