In a products life cycle, it is important to solve different variations of problems concerning production, shipping, assembly and usage. However purchasing behaviours of users are directly effected by usage scenario. Absence of any assembly process and possiblity of changing the location of desk without need of any tools are the key factors that produce many reasons favoring among competitors. Reducing shipping costs, removing assembly costs and minimizing service costs results directly as a decrease which creates reasonable price strategies. From design to sales, Octavo offers feasible and flexible solutions.
The challenge was to design a ready to use, removable and assembly free product to maximize efficiency in small living spaces and provide users alternative workspaces offering personalization.
