About

ABOUT  
We are Sin Cars International (part of Sin Cars UK), young company specialized in production of racing and sports GT cars. We developed our own carbon shop where we produce all the carbon parts and components of our cars. Carbon composite and racing technology gives amazing opportunity for incredible design ideas. So here we want to release one of the opportunities – Red Dot Award winning concept – HUG Chair. We have a lot of fans and followers for our motorsport activities. Here we want to present something we can offer to them.

WHAT IS HUG CHAIR  

HUG CHAIR is an armchair designed especially for you and your significant other. The intention behind HUG CHAIR was to create a piece of furniture that makes a connection between clarity design and simple gestures in human relationships - like hugging you loved one, for example. The result is an armchair designed especially for you and your significant other. A couple can sit together without one person bearing the weight of the other on their lap. The chair`s silhouette conveys a clear message - getting a bit closer to other person. Even when one`s beloved is away, HUG CHAIR accommodates a comfortable videochat, or simply some time spent hugging one`s pet.

THE DESIGNER BEHIND THE CONCEPT

The designer of HUG is Ilian Milinov, famous designer in the area with numerous awards – 3 times Red Dot Design Award winner; “Chair of the year” in Italy in 2002. For more info you can visit his website: http://www.ilian-milinov.com/ HUG is an armchair designed especially for you and your significant other. 

DESIGN AND PROTOTYPING 

Like a racing cars manufacturer we design and produce all our parts and components of our cars. We have huge experience in prototyping and parts design, 3D and surface modeling.

We have our own CNC department where we are making patterns and shapes, then after surface preparation we make moulds for final manufacturing. Because of the complicated shapes moulds for HUG chair need special pattern a lot of handwork to be able to receive nice final product. We built very simple plastic prototype (visible in pictures and movies we made) to prove the idea of the designer and to check reaction of the people. This complicated shape regarding safety and durability can be made only from carbon composite materials. That is why the designer contacted us and asked to make this great idea true.

 

 

DIMENSIONS AND MATERIALS

For the first model we offer steel support frame and carbon seat/ double site wall carbon composite body.  

  • High quality carbon fiber  
  • Composite material  
  • Steel support frame  

The technology is the same as with production of racing cars and Formula 1 cars. So with this chair you can have something very advanced like technology, something from the future in your home.

TIMELINE

Because of the specific shape of the HUG CHAIR its very difficult to calculate transportation cost and put it in the price together with the chair. That`s why we are offering the chair without shipping price included, but we are confident and we will use our experience for every customer to offer best price for transportation service to a certain location.

Risks and challenges

This is the first time we launch on Kickstarter. Like a racing and sports car manufacturer we have huge experience launching new cars and components for them. We are confident that we can deliver things in time.

They say that if you're going to build a successful business then get people who are better than you. We've gathered a team of world-beating pros. These guys know everything there is to know about prototyping, manufacturing and distribution, and they've looked at every stage of production through getting you your chair. The fact that our whole team is with big experience in motorsports and get used to tight deadlines also is something that we rely on.

However, there are always risks involved with new products. But we always try to work as hard as we can to minimize those risks with our years of experiences in manufacturing, product sourcing, logistics, and quality control.

1. Inventory risk: We already have the production prototype . However, We don't know yet the interest level from Kickstarter backers.
Throughout the campaign, we'll monitor the number of orders closely and adjust our production as quickly as possible.

2. Supply chain risk: While we're confident that we have everything under control. However, component delays and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and work to quickly solve the problem.

3. Transportation services: Because of the specific shape of the HUG CHAIR its very difficult to calculate transportation cost and put it in the price together with the chair. That`s why we are offering the chair without shipping price included, but we are confident and we will use our experience for every customer to offer best price for transportation service to a certain location.
