Hi, my name is Roberto Molino, I’m an Italian designer from Turin. I’ve always been a keen a cyclist and biker. I graduated in Psychology, but I’ve always been doing manual and creative work. For ten years I worked in restoration, I restored pieces of art all over Italy and for a few years I worked as a stage painter on movie sets.
In time, I took a great interest in Design so I followed a Course in Manual Modelling and Design in Turin. Meanwhile I worked as a freelance and I realized artistic installations, pieces of furniture, lamps and design objects, some of which went on exhibition at the “Salone di Milano” trade fair. Then I taught Manual Design at IED, the European Institute of Design in Turin, for 3 years. It consisted in realizing personal projects by hand by using technical equipement and materials.
HOW THE DONDO HORSE WAS BORN
Risks and challenges
We are ready!
We've reduced the risks to a minimum, because:
- The project and prototype improvement process has been going on for more than a year.
After many attempts and prototypes, we are now confident in designing, producing and delivering Dondo Horse to our supporters within the timescales.
Although this is our first experience in bringing a product to the market, we have already tested and implemented a pre-production.
- Our suppliers of materials and services (raw materials, water cutting, packaging) have already been defined.
We chose local production and implementation partners in Piedmont (Italy).
Their proximity to our lab allows us to supervise production, guaranteeing quality and punctuality in manufacturing.
In addition, to be sure we can produce and deliver, we have limited the total number of Dondo Horse to produce.
If this number is exceeded during the campaign, we will open new levels with later delivery dates.
