Fold-able Utility Cart

About this project

When Utility Matters More

Designers poke fun at themselves by saying they simply make pretty things. But Product Development is so much more than that. It requires an understanding of mechanics, manufacturability, and usability. Sometimes, the function of a product takes precedent over it’s aesthetics.

This one one of those times. We came in to this project when there was already a concept and initial prototype. The client needed a CAD model and to modify some of the hinge points for easier use and better weight distribution. We rather enjoyed working around hinges and bearings, rather than batteries and circuit boards.
