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.

D’LIGHT, a modern table lamp with a transformable lampshade, will be the perfect light for not only improving your interior design of the allocated space, but also for comforting atmosphere. D’LIGHT ‒ a compound word of “donative” and “light”‒ is a kinetic lighting with transformable lampshade using flexible honeycomb structure. By simply control it with smartphone application, it automatically moves with an embedded motor inside. Intensity and direction of the light emitted from the lampshade keep change as the shape changes, so user can adjust its shape to make appropriate moods. It will provide a different mood at every angle. With flexible honeycomb structure and diverse designs, D’LIGHT not only provide rich emission of light, but also create wonderful mood in any places.

Risks and challenges

Established in 2013, with 9 year experience of product design and manufacturing, our team has eagerly participated in many international exhibitions and landed business opportunities from all over the world.

We have exported the high quality goods by ship and airplane for the last 5 years and delivering orders on time has been our #1 priority. We are very excited to bring nanum D’light to your space.

There may some unexpected challenges during the manufacturing stage but we began constructing the lamp. We work continually to improve the quality of our products since 2016. However, the challenge of ensuring high level of quality in manufacturing still remains. We are ensuring that no faulty will be delivered through rigorous final inspection.

There may some unexpected challenges during the manufacturing stage but we began constructing the lamp and this project from 2016 to provide the product in perfect condition. We ensure to deliver all the rewards without any defectiveness by rigorous final inspection.

<Delivery risks>
All the shipments will be tracked. However please be informed that you may encounter unexpected problems. We will keep all the backers informed about regular updates and upgrades for the product and we will do our absolute best to provide customer service as fast as possible.

<Plug & Survey>
There are two types of plug for D’light, cUL certified plug(2 flat pins) and CE certified plug(2 round pins). Applicable plug for each country between cUL plug and CE plug will be delivered. However, a plug adapter might be required.

As to Lovepot, a survey will be sent right after your investment to allow you to choose your preferred design (only for the backers chose LOVEPOT as their reward for the investment). Please note that the survey must be submitted no later than 30th of September, or the design will be randomly chosen for you.
