Gantri Table Lights
Gantri is a platform to create and buy modern designs.
We offer designers a simple way to bring new designs to market. Using our product framework, materials and components, designers can create production-ready 3D models. We review, prototype and test designs to ensure quality. Completed designs are sold through our online shop and made using production-quality 3D printing.
Compared to the traditional design process, our model gives designers full creative freedom and drastically reduces time-to-market. This means individual designers can easily create their own design brand and sell directly to their audience with no middleman. Consumers get access to affordable original designs that wouldn't otherwise exist.
We launched in October 2017 Table Lights, our first product category. Since then, we've worked with designers from the US, Italy, Colombia and more, bringing more than 20 original lights to market.
Table Lights is the first product category on the Gantri platform. It represents our vision for how premium designs can be developed, made and sold using digital technologies.
Each Gantri Table Light is a unique, original design by an independent designer or design studio. They all share the same materials and internal components, and are made using production-quality 3D printing. Every light is created on the Gantri platform and available for purchase online.
The process to create a new table light on Gantri is simple and streamlined - everything is accessible through our online designer dashboard. There are 4 main steps. 1. Concept - the designer submits a thoughtful, original design idea that passes our design quality and feasibility requirements. 2. Model - the designer creates a near-production 3D model of the design that integrates our internal components. 3. Engineering - our engineers optimize, prototype and test the design to ensure quality and production reliability. 4. Content - we photograph the design and prepare it for sale. Once the process is complete, the design is listed on the Gantri online shop and sold directly to the customer. The designer receives royalty on sales.
Throughout our design process, we uphold a stringent quality bar to ensure the originality, thoughtfulness and craftsmanship of every design. Thanks to digital technologies such as 3D modeling and 3D printing, our development timeframe is much shorter and the designer has a greater degree of freedom in realizing their own ideas. Since products are 3D printed and sold directly, we can adjust production to live market conditions. This minimizes inventory, allowing us to provide our services to designers for free and sell products at more attainable prices.
In developing the platform behind Gantri Table Lights, we created a new 3D printing process capable of producing high-quality parts. We also sourced and certified all components and materials. In addition, our in-house industrial design team created 3 original lights that form the Gantri Reference Design series, and made their 3D models freely available for our designers to download.
We hope that you enjoy Gantri Table Lights. Thank you for your consideration.
