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.

About

Industrial Elegance

Arc low back dining chair
Arc low back dining chair

We are raising funds for the manufacture of our Arc low back dining chair. It is constructed out of Canadian steel (recyclable) and Baltic birch plywood (recycled material). Our wood is stained and sealed by hand. The steel parts are either powder coated or electroplated and shipped flat allowing for a low carbon footprint.
