Solo Form is an idea and approach to search for solutions and to create potential in product design, development of products and product innovations.
Solo Form develops its philosophy, identity and methods of work based services on product design, development of own products and sustainable relationships in partner projects. Over the years, Solo Form follows a main philosophy: “Form Follows Function”. The idea of a good and valuable design is its functionality, without which design is incomplete. This makes it realistic for the market, applicable, innovative and useful to people, regardless of its purpose.
The main goals of Solo Form are to solve problems in the surrounding world, innovation in different fields and in development of products. It follows the direction for improvement and upgrading of potential projects and their transformation into real products. For Solo Form the main priorities during development of product are: analysis of real potential and opportunities for development of the idea; taking into consideration the engineering, production, economic and marketing characteristics of the project; searching for solutions in the event of problems; creating variants and directions for development and experimentation with principles, functions, technologies and materials. Communication is an essential part of the process, so feedback is important during the project. Another major element is the collaboration with the specialists and subcontractors involved in the project, whether they are manufacturers, engineers, constructors, technologists, marketers, economists, managers, software and hardware specialists, academics and others.
For Solo Form, its priorities are in the areas of product design and product innovations. One of the main directions is the development of own products – their adaptation and deployment, their realization and the acquisition of intellectual property rights related to them. Another main priority for Solo Form is the product design services – design, consulting and project development.. At the same time, it follows a direction of development, establishing long-term relationships and cooperation with companies and subcontractors in different fields – prototyping, production, marketing, etc. Added value for Solo Form is also a top priority. One of the directions of development is the generation of intellectual property – trademark registration, industrial design rights, utility models and inventions, as well as their assignment and sale of licensing rights. Solo Form relies on the potential and will continue to participate in future partner projects, but under strict conditions, budget and marketing strategy.
It’s never in vain to invest in the process of „Product design & Development” because it adds value, builds content and creates potential. The idea will have far greater and more realistic opportunities to appear on the market as a product, and it will not remain at the level of idea, innovation or invention. The goal of each project is to pass through „Product design & Development” step by step. It starts with designing in the stages of “Conceptual Development” and “3D Modeling”. It continues with the development of the “Models and Prototypes” stage, through experimental models and functional prototypes, depending on the characteristics and objectives of the project. The previous three stages are very important for organizing and developing the fourth final stage – “Adaptation of Manufacturing”.
