- Vacuum Casting
- Finishing & Painting
Initially, a series of SLA and SLS models were produced to assemble a proof-of-concept model with the added advantage of checking the function of the working parts: sliding features, retention clips, blade fits, switches etc. After a series of design and prototyping phases the final design was turned into a finished, working prototype ready for marketing and photography. We used a combination of fully finished SLAs and SLAs with high quality vacuum castings and over-moulding to achieve a protype that was indistinguishable from the manufactured product.
A stunning working model of the final design was presented to the client on time and to budget. The Mandoline went on to win a coveted European Product Design Award and was a finalist in the IHHS Housewares Design Awards.
