Our vision

STUDIO MANGO is like our customers looking for innovation; through co-operation, research, creative solutions and affordable engineering we strive to develop products which look professional, are useful to consumers and generate more revenues for our clients.

STUDIO MANGO is known for: 

  • Professional design of products.
  • Development of totally new concepts, products and markets.
  • Finding of innovative solutions for working principles of products.
  • Re-design of products or assembly lines to cut down costs

Design process

In practice the design process is about creative and technical processes which eventually will lead to the development of successful and innovative products. Types of products can vary but overall the structure and way they are developed is the same.

As with most things a good start amounts to half the work, with product development a thorough research phase even before a single sketch is made creates the foundation of a good design and successful product. So what’s determined in such a research?

  • What is your brands heritage or what is it that your brand stands for?
  • What is the competition doing, do they have similar products and how are they doing?
  • Are there patents which restrict the development of a product?
  • Regulations, which standards need to be taken in account?
  • What are trends in the market and how can a product be positioned?
  • Are there recent technological developments which can be of advantage in the product?
  • Which production capacities does the client have (in-house production)?
  • Ergonomics and usability of the to be developed product.
  • Price, what may a product cost and is this achievable?

Only after answering these questions a solid Program of Demands can be made which sets the guidelines for the remainder of the process. After this the concept development, sketches, design proposal, technical detailing, prototypes and finished product will follow.

Functionality, constructional and esthetic simplicity and care for details are key fundamentals in my design process. They transform an ordinary product into something extraordinary. It is very rewarding to find that perfect balance.

I love to tinker and make products. I have very broad interests and hobbies which help me with the very broad process of creating a product from idea to manufacturing.

For Studio Mango I mainly focus on the inside of the product, namely the electronics.

Good products are products people remember. Although every memory is different, it’s always about the overall user experience. Focused on the user, I aim to create innovative concepts, aesthetically pleasing designs and intuitive, enjoyable interactions.

A good product is designed with the user in mind. The design should be intuitive and logical. It is tempting to make a product too complex, the trick is to keep it simple.
