General Design

© Javier Callejas
The design has been developed through the definition of several families of elements (furniture, acoustic elements, interactive elements, etc.) and based on developing common features for each of them. Each family required a different constructive system: the furniture had to be tough and prepared for a constant movement, the ceiling and the cladding needed a geometry which could absorb the sound etc. For the development, we create a special design program to each family, obtaining exportable and original systems. 

General Design

The whole prototyping process required for the production of these non-standard systems has been possible with the aid of the digital production tools. The design has been developed through prototypes, one-to-one models, in which the principles of design, structure or manufacturing process are continuously related. 

Design Elements

Drawings, construction details and models have been substituted by this series of real-scale models, allowing to develop a design by testing its result directly in the making, adjusting it until the system was ready for production. These non-standard designs are displayed on LEKA?s web platform, and available for the download. Customers can continue their LEKA experience either cooking an original recipe, or fabricating any of the furniture at home.
