About this project

Edison the Petit

How to translate a sketch into a mass producible product with unique lighting performance?

Challenge

This needs some extra explanation; the first briefing from FB was to develop the EtP for an annual quantity of 5K pieces. So we chose rotational molding as production technique for the housing>> low investment and nice mono shape possibilities. The moment FB presented the EtP on the B&B fair, the sales prognoses was immediately updated to 50-100K annually, a huge success from the first moment! Production wise we had a new challenge; rotational molding is absolutely not suited for these big numbers. So the second briefing was; make a EtP2.0 which looks the same as 1.0 but suited for production volumes of 100K+ annually!

Solutions

The combination of special light guide with sophisticated switch mechanism and smart configuration of housing parts results in a seamlessly obvious lamp which therefore was embraced by the market and consumers.

From the first carton model until the final mold checks in China, StudioKees was there, always going the extra mile
