Double were brought in as a creative development partner to design engineer the fixture system, ready for tendering.
This was a procurement led project, so our focus was to create fully detailed and price tested design solutions, going through many iterations to reduce final manufacture cost and reduce lead-times.
Our approach with this, and all volume manufacture projects, is to design out unnecessary materials and processes. This has the added benefit of creating a strong improvement in the sustainability of the fixtures by reducing material waste, processes and energy consumption. Looking beyond the manufacturing stages, we optimise the design to be flat packed, reducing distribution costs.
We also designed in the ability to offer the system with a fully modular approach, so the widest customer base could be engaged in a dedicated branded fixture space.
