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

Soflex is a luxurious loungeset that gives you the freedom to vary endlessly. Whether you want to enjoy it in your garden, on your terrace, in the office or at a festival; everything is possible! Moving and storing Soflex takes minimal effort and we’ve only used durable and high quality materials.

Why we need your help 

After two years of extensive testing, Soflex is now ready for production. This is where we need your help. Funding this campaign will finance our first production run. We’ve got great rewards for our backers and of course you’ll get our eternal gratitude for your support.

Design & materials 

The design of Soflex is based on the looks and exact sizes of a sturdy Euro Transport Pallet. We’ve used countless layers of beautiful birch wood to create Soflex’s pallets. For the arm and backrests we used stainless steel and for the cushions we’ve chosen a colour-fast and wear-resistant fabric that can withstand some rain. To protect the wood that is used for Soflex, we’ve tested and helped develop a special biodegradable nano-coating. To test all this, we've even put a Soflex prototype on our own workshop roof for a couple of months, just to check how it holds up in the Dutch weather conditions. We are very pleased with the results!

Risks and challenges

We understand there will be risks along the way. However: we are experienced furniture makers, we are prepared and well-equiped and for this project we have gathered around us a group of professional suppliers which have given us their invaluable input as well.
We have completed the product development during a period of more than two years, we have already tested the latest prototypes and test samples. We expect no problems. All that appears to be left is the actual series production of Soflex.
