Cubbie Case Study
Client: Cubbie (DMC Design)
Market: Autism Spectrum/Sensory equipment
In 2020 Flexitech were approached by David McIntyre, MD of DMC Design, an Irish company that had designed a sensory platform for the Autism Market, which is widely known as Cubbie. Flexitech R&D division had several consultations with DMC Design, to understand the function and mechanics of Cubbie. DMC required a manufacturing partner, that had the expertise and technical capacity to design, manufacture and assemble their prototype, and that’s exactly what Flexitech achieved.
Flexitech R&D Team, Headed up by Michael Elmore, worked closely with DMC to come up with a design and that would suit their needs and also minimise manufacturing costs. Regular onsite updates were provided to the client along with fully interactive 3D to ensure the DMC was satisfied with the design and to approve any requested modifications.
David McIntrye MD of Cubbie commented:
From the outset, the objective was to have Cubbie manufactured in Ireland, finding the right manufacturer to develop a prototype and provide the design expertise required thorough research. After various consultations with manufacturers across Ireland, I was confident Flexitech have the expertise and knowledge to deliver exactly what I wanted!
From Design, to Prototype to Final product, Flexitech endorsed the highest level of design engineering and manufacturing, from production right through to assembly.
DMC-Design Ltd, developed the Cubbie booth which offers a multi-sensory space to both children and adults and can adapt to the individual needs of each user.
