Fi, one of our design team came in one day and said "why do glasses cases do one thing, protect our glasses. they sit o our desk all day when they could do so much more?". So we decided to go about reinventing the humble glasses case. By the end of the day we had a cardboard working prototype that could hold our tablet and phone and hide away all the pocket shrapnel we empty on our desks every day.
PRODUCT: BOB Glasses case
CLIENT: Bang Creations
We wanted the case to be strong, light and contemporary. But it had to hold a large pair of glasses too. When the wings were down we wanted to hold a tablet and a phone at teh same time in both landscape and portrait and at two viewing angles. We really wanted BOB to allow the tablet to become a extra monitor stand.
Magnets hold the wings together and offsetting the hinge allows us to add strength to the wings when open. Designing the production tool to split in a certain way allows us to add a supporting rib to one wing without taking up space, so BOB can now house a large pair of wayfarers, and support all tablets even with their cases on.
We are very excited to be launching BOB on Kickstarter. We have taken the design through engineering, IP protection and manufactruing handover, so now all we need to do is press the button to start production. It is our very first project on a crowd sourced platform and we are keen to learn if you like BOB as much as we do.
