In 2004, the foundations of Solo Form have been laid down as an idea and approach to search for solutions and to create potential in product design and product innovation development.
The main goal of Solo Form is to solve problems in the surrounding world, innovation in different spheres and in product development. It follows the direction for improvement and upgrading of potential projects and their transformation into real products.
Solo Form develops its philosophy, style and methods of work based on product design, development of own products and sustainable relationships in partner projects.
For Solo Form the main priorities during product development are: analysis of real potential and opportunities for development of the idea; taking into consideration the engineering, production, economic and marketing characteristics of the project; searching for solutions in the event of problems; creating variants and directions for development and experimentation with principles, functions, technologies and materials.
Communication is an essential part of the process, so feedback is important during the project. Another major element is the work with the specialists and subcontractors involved in the project, whether they are manufacturers, engineers, constructors, technologists, marketers, economists, managers, software and hardware specialists, academics and others.
