MAP - pre-production prototype

Highly Regulated Case Study

MAP

Creative consultancy MAP is a partner of innovative technology firm Kano, which has expanded its range of design-driven products on the back of its success with the world’s first make-your-own computer. When developing casework for a new Kano product, MAP urgently required a pre-production prototype to realise its design in three-dimensional form.

Solution

FRP liaised closely with MAP to support them in arriving at the chosen material and finish, supplying a variety of components as part of the process.

Result

Within a turnaround of just five days, FRP delivered a high-quality casework component with a gloss finish, providing MAP with a precise visual representation of the production component.

“At MAP we like to offer our clients new ways of looking at – and solving – the problems they present us with. FRP play a crucial part in this process by providing us with the fast real parts we need to test and develop our ideas. For the recent Kano casework project, FRP advised us on what materials and finishes were available and supplied a range of parts from different processes, all of which fed into the kit we developed for our client. We look forward to working with FRP on other projects in the future.”
