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

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Let me show you how to open the doors to space directly from your kitchen table! But be careful and hold your plate or else you may drop your food into space!

Every ‘First Bean to Space” plate is designed to create an optical illusion and 3D feel, affecting the users’ sense of reality and making them feel like they are facing a gateway into space. All you need to do is just believe in magic and give a little love and support.

A little bit about me: I’m a Brooklyn based industrial designer and illustrator originally from Istanbul. I’m the creator of Monsters of New York, a series of monsters drawn over New York photos. And also you can see my works on Instagram and Behance

I’ve been drawing on things ever since I was a kid; on paper, walls, cabinets, my dad’s car, my sister - anything I find! I love bringing my imagination to life by drawing on objects and making them quirky and fun. It gives me an outlet to speak to an invisible audience and become part of something bigger than myself through objects of utility and fun. It’s like joining a big dinner party. This is how and why I came up with the idea of creating the “First Bean to Space” series; to add a little bit of fun and magic to your dinner tables. In the future I am planning on expanding the series to include an even bigger part of outer space.

These magical plates will be produced in Kutahya, Turkey, a region well known for its high quality porcelain manufacturing for ages. The plates will be food safe, microwave safe and dishwasher safe. They are 10" (25 cm.) in diameter.

Currently, we have 3 designs in this set, which if successful, we plan to expand into more designs. You can get the whole set of three, complete it to 6 or just get one of the designs in the series for yourself. And don’t forget to spread the love to space and share our project with your loved ones.

Thank you!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges for this project are low. Production-wise, we have already prototyped the plates and seen that our designs work great on them. We know we can manufacture them and the final product will be exactly as you see them on this page.

If we get too many orders too fast, we may run into issues around scaling at the same pace and will be very transparent about the process.
