Brief

i4 were asked to develop a fresh version of Flymo's existing Visimo mower which incorporated enhanced functionality, whilst demonstrating an evolution of the aesthetic design.

Approach

i4's designers worked closely with Flymo's R&D team when generating the complex 'A' surface CAD geometry. Our experience of having engineered the previous product greatly benefited our team in developing a pragmatic engineered solution whilst capturing the Industrial Design intent.

Various conceptual forms were explored by way of sketching and fabrication of foam models prior to capturing the preferred direction as a SolidWorks 'A' surface CAD model. The 'A' surface experienced several iterative adjustments to allow for the functional elements of the design to operate correctly, with always an eye on the requirements of DFM and DFA.

Result

A beautiful sleek new form which was well engineered to include extra features and performance upgrades.

It all starts with a conversation. Let's make something amazing together.
