SKOOGMUSIC | SKOOG 2
Skoogmusic, an innovative Scottish musical device manufacturer, already had market success with their first digital musical instrument, The Skoog, a revolutionary tactile cube that changes the way people enjoy, create and learn music. They approached Cramasie to help develop their second generation device, Skoog 2.
Skoog 2 builds on the proprietary user interface of the Skoog. Skoog’s universal design enables accessible, expressive music-making for children, parents, teachers, musicians and families.
This universal design ethic was paramount in the development of the second generation device and one of the biggest challenges with the design was to find materials and manufacturing processes that would deliver the malleable tactile interface whilst also being cost effective and efficient to manufacture and that could be controlled accurately enough to be assembled to the sensitive electronics within the cube.
Cramasie developed a new product assembly concept and designed an injection moulded base and soft interface parts. We worked with Skoogmusic to prototype iterations of the soft cube, to source manufacturing partners and deliver a complete production solution. The result is a higher spec, higher quality lower cost, more repeatable product. The device is now sold in Apple Shops worldwide.
“Working with Cramasie was a pleasure, their professional approach and efficiency helped us move forward quickly with investigating and iterating a number of design options. Cramasie’s experience was particularly helpful in developing innovative manufacturing processes and materials that enabled us to produce a much improved product with better robustness and repeatability.” David Skulina, Co-founder/director of Skoogmusic
