Problem Statement

Develop a family of products using mixed materials. DISHER was tasked to design and develop chairs, stools, and tables for the fast-casual market with simple design-for-manufacturing integration.

Research & Methodology

DISHER Product Researchers benchmarked a variety of dining table, chair, and stool designs which incorporated wood and metal. Colors, materials, and key trends were explored and analyzed with the customer.

Ideate & Design

DISHER Industrial Designers sketched both exploratory designs and focused-design possibilities. A variety of assembly processes were analyzed and ranked to meet design objectives. Conceptual Engineers worked in collaboration with the customer to define and prioritize user-centered functional requirements, manufacturing feasibility, and product-design consistency.
