We are an industrial design company with many years of experience in the design & development of products for a wide variety of markets. Studio Mango offers the following services:
Our Main Competences are:
It is key for any project to gather as much information prior to starting developing actual products. Gathering this knowledge can be time consuming and costly. Studio Mango can provide the expertise and knowledge through our design consultancy. We understand that it is of the utmost importance that a brand evolves naturally and that the right steps have to be taken to guarantee that the outcome of projects are successful products. Through the large number of projects which we managed or in which we assisted we have gained a huge amount of information and expertise. Our consultancy strengths lie in:
- Development of innovative products & concepts;
- Concept creation;
- Engineering for production (affordability);
- Explore new markets based on clients portfolio’s;
- Technical project management;
- Outsourcing of production & quality control;
A good product is a product which has been given a lot of thought; it needs to be aesthetically pleasing, well manufactured, economic, user friendly, safe, environmentally conscious, transportable and above all it needs to be able to generate sufficient revenues for the manufacturer/brand and its sales channels.
Before any design sketch is made we determine together with the client which demands a product has to fulfill. After approval of this program of demands a step-by-step design process follows. At all times during this design process the client has a clear overview concerning the status of the project, there is always the possibility to make adjustments. In each project GO / NO-GO milestones are built in.
Studio Mango has a wide network of suppliers and manufacturers who are very well capable of producing components or complete products according to our specifications. For clients who have their own machine park we aim to design the products as much as possible tailored to their own production facilities.
Besides the development of professional products, which are suitable for mass production, Studio mango is well familiar with the mechanical engineering principles, which can produce more efficient, better and less expensive products. For research and consultancy in this field of expertise our engineers are also more than equipped.
Product development & quality control on location: you’re involved in product development abroad (for example China) or are planning to do so in the future?
Moving your production to another country can have serious financial benefits but besides these benefits it can also bring problems. Communication obscurities, quality issues, copying of products, packaging defects, employee treatment, safety standards and faulty products can all pose serious threats. Through temporarily employing an engineer from Studio Mango which will be deployed on location you assure yourself of having short communication lines and the quality and skills where you need them.
We’ll make sure that the product is developed correctly and that the production is setup professionally. Through our huge portfolio of manufacturers worldwide we can also help you to make a selection for a supplier.
A picture says more than a 1.000 words, not only for products we are capable to provide professional visualizations and presentations also for an array of other projects visualizations can be made.
An important step in the modern product development process is the creation of a digital 3d model of a concept. A 3d model can have many purposes in the product development process:
- Base component to be able to design a mould.
- Base component to be able to rapid prototype (3d printing).
- Base component to be able to do strength calculations and stress analysis.
- Base for technical calculations or simulations.
- Create rendering images.
- Assembly purposes.
- For use by your clients as a digital part in their 3d models.
Often a product isn’t complete without a packaging, manual or website. To promote a product and to communicate a brand these are crucially important issues, so besides physical product development Studio Mango offers services for:
- Packaging design
- Website design
- Manual & brochure design
- Promotional design
- Stand design
There is only one planet earth so we all have to take care of her, in that respect the practice of industrial design can always be seen as a questionable one. At Studio Mango we strive to design products which consumers love to use for long periods of time; made as sustainable as possible and which have added value not only for our clients but for society as a whole. To guarantee this in each project we work according the latest strict environmental regulation NEN-EN-IEC 62075:2012 in which for example the following details are regulated:
- Prevention of the use of all kinds of toxic materials or production methods;
- Use recycled or recyclable materials where possible;
- Use as little as possible materials and parts in a product;
- Avoid using material combinations which are incompatible;
- Use as little as possible different materials in one product;
- Put indications on materials so that in recycling they can be easily separated;
- Make it easy for products to be repaired and upgraded;
- Use standardized components where possible;
- Avoid the use of coatings and finishes as much as possible;
- Avoid the use of adhesives;
- Reduce the number of welds;
Studio Mango takes this responsibility even further; assisting clients in allocating production at locations as close as possible where goods are being sold and used; saving that they have to be shipped halfway across the world. Additionally we never push suppliers and manufacturers to make goods for such low prices that they have to resort to practices of slave labor and using second grade bad and often toxic materials.
