Colombo Phones / SGW

SGW Global - a manufacturer and distributer of consumer electronics products and services, were excited to develop this concept and decided to take it to market. Colombo One is the upright version and Colombo Two is the lay flat version.

We developed the industrial design in tandem with a new internal architecture by the SGW engineers in China. We offered creative tooling advise to enable the engineers to overcome the challenging aspects of designing the tooling to maintain the design intent. 

3D data I produced at various stages was used to make early mock-ups and appearance models. Defined final production surfaces for issue to the manufacturer.

Material/Process: Plastic, injection molding.

Launched at the 2008 Salone del Mobile and subsequently commercially available through various retailers.
