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.

Our Story

“When I was little, I got a little toy from my carpenter father: a Kongming Lock – it always fascinated me and I as I grew up, I thought about fusing this beautiful Chinese culture classic with a Western element. The result is Locklery, fusing Western dining with ancient Chinese design. It’s functional, beautiful to look at, and fun to play with”, says co-founder Andy Wan.   

   

What is LOCKLERY and what makes it awesome? 

Displaying our LOCKLERY at any point exhibits good taste in decoration and creates unique lifestyle.

    

The Branded premium cutlery set available in the market are unreasonably expensive. We design LOCKLERY with reasonable price. 

LOCKLERY comes as a six-piece set of two knives, two spoons and two forks, all made of high quality stainless steel and FDA grade materials, designed in an elegant shape.

      

Our LOCKLERY is a type of fusion, combining the ancient Chinese wisdom and contemporary western dining cultures, and it is a puzzle toy that can be enjoyed by all ages.

         

LOCKLERY is Eco-friendly

LOCKLERY is also eco-friendly, using sustainable polymers like Polypropylene (PP) and Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR), making it a responsible choice for the environmentally conscious design lover.

LOCKLERY made of high quality stainless steel and FDA grade materials, and BPA free.

    

What is Kongming Lock?

Lu Ban (魯班) was an ancient Chinese great carpenter, patron saint of Chinese builder and contractors. It is said that he design an intellectual mechanism which was well known as Lu Ban Lock (魯班鎖). This consisted of 6 wooden rods. The concave and convex parts inside mesh perfectly. They are usually easy to take apart and difficult to reassemble. The lock may look simple, but it contains lots of mysteries. If you don’t understand how it works, you can hardly put it together.

Kongming (孔明), a very famous strategist in Three Kingdoms, made use of the design and developed a variety of the lock. It was widely popular among the folks. That’s why also known as Kongming Lock (孔明鎖).

We created tons of revisions to find the best position of the Kongming Lock on LOCKLERY. After more than a year of prototyping and testing, we are now ready to go for production. 

        

          

Why your support is important?

LOCKLERY is ready for production. We have a well function prototype. We now need to raise US$30,000 to fund the first production run. All the funds raised will go directly towards sourcing the materials and expert labor needed to create these cutleries. We have the suppliers and manufacturers lined up and ready to go. If you like LOCKLERY please support us be a part of it and bring LOCKLERY to life.

Risks and challenges

The production for Kongming Cutlery involves the tooling development. We have to get in touch with few potential manufacturer. But of course, before the launch of this project, they will not know how detail is the said tooling that might involve.

We have experience in the manufacturing field for more than 10 years, we have the expertise to fix it and get it done when we have enough fund raised.

We already have fully function-able prototype. And we already well communicated the necessary time frame with our manufacture to make it a real product. However, unexpected hiccups can happen along the way. If they do, we’ll be open and upfront. We know how important transparency is and we commit to always keeping you in the loop about the status of our campaign.
