RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
When designing a product for a company , first we study the product that can develop and do a market study about the piece that could fit into the company. We are interested in how to work with the company and the technological means available for investment in the production of the new piece is not overcharged . We study the public they would go leading products , creating a profile and get very roughly the final cost of the piece to be sold. Once the piece made ​​study design trends , colors , finishes and upholstery materials to give the product of the maximum today.

CHALLENGE:
It struggled to find the desired comfort due to the amount of foams existing densities . Several prototypes with different densities were carried out until the desired comfort. As for the internal structure also they had some changes since the original construction was heavy and difficult to handle after replacing some studies and tests by a light metal structure. Also the form of upholstered arms has been studied by different sewn , tests and finishes concluding that the zipper was the best way to reach the raised design .
