Risks and challenges
We've been working on this project for almost 6 months, from concept to prototype. We visited many suppliers and manufacturers until we found those that shared our vision in making the best product we could offer. What you see here is only the final result. We made our campaign very visual so you can quickly understand our design. Underlaying the campaign is an acute business plan guaranteeing a reliable production and delivery process.
We have already lined up three electronic components suppliers: our first choice one plus two back-up suppliers. They will provide us with an already assembled cable connection and bulb, ready to be plugged in!
We have a local manufacturer for the main and most important part of the JAL, the glass body. We chose Ferran Collado, an internationally recognized glass blower that happens to be our neighbor. Being so close to him makes everything much easier. He meshes perfectly with our volumes, timings and quality standards for our lamp. As a back-up he has a professional and qualified team of glass blowers in case we need larger volumes (and we hope we do!). Because the glass body is handcrafted, we already have the first batch produced.
Furthermore, the molds are produced so we can start the glass blowing process as soon as this project reaches its funding goal. While each lamp is handcrafted and unique, with these molds we guarantee each lamp is made in accordance with certain standards.
We are assured of the electronic stock as the three suppliers (two of them local) are mass producers and the shipping time will be less than week.
We have signed agreements established with shipping companies than can deliver both nationally and internationally. The packaging for the lamp is designed and tested. We think packaging is fundamental and will not take risks on this. We are able to start shipping as soon as the first batch is ready.
While there are always risks & challenges with creating and delivering a brand new product, we've minimized both by having the entire process, from production to delivery, already prearranged.
