During the past year Cides and Vanhalst (with famous brands as bb collections and Atelier Pierre) worked together to create a new product, based on a well defined design process. We applied all concepts of product development and co-creation. At the INTERIEUR fair, all results of this 5x5 project are shown: prototypes and concepts of on-going cooperations.
