Description:
Space Division Inc is inspired by space travel and the materials used to make modern rockets and space ships. We want to design office furniture that embodies this inspiration and makes use of this material. We are set to launch a sit/stand desktop converter called the Booster and now we want to provide additional, complimentary products. The first is a modern, space inspired desk lamp.
Wants:
We are looking for a clean, modern design that makes use of the carbon fiber flat sheet that we have access to. We are open to a mix of materials but it should be kept to a small amount as we do not have experience or a supply chain set up to handle that. Of course metal hardware is acceptable, but an effort should be made to use the same sizes where possible. The lighting and electrical should be off the shelf components that are readily available, preferably made in the USA.
Don't Wants:
We do not want overly complex designs that are difficult to manufacture. Pockets or channels cut into the carbon fiber sheets should be kept to a minimum.
Software:
  1. SolidWorks (2018)

@Poorvesh Mistry,
1) For this desk lamp I am envisioning using AC power, so the cords will need to relatively inconspicuous. For the light, I am open to a normal size bulb or using LED arrayed as desired to work with your design.
2) We will sell these in our e-commerce store so we will need to ship disassembled, so ease of assembly will be important. The design can incorporate some pieces that are glued together, but that should not be part of the assembly. Fasterners are preferred.
3) The height range should be within 20-28"
4) Plastics would be ok, depending on the use. Metal is acceptable. Mirrors and glass would be more difficult to work with, however if they are of easy shape, (circle, rectangle) it may be acceptable.

@shnaldridge, our material partner is Elevated Materials and we get cured sheets from them. They do have the capability to make curved pieces but we don't want to have to buy any molds or tooling. Their flat sheet goes up to 1/4" but they can make thicker if required. They cut the material on a waterjet.
I will attach a picture of the Booster sit/stand desk.

Need more information, looking at the products on your website
1) What kind of bulb you wish to use ? running on batteries or directly on AC supply or rechargeable system ?
2) want the design to be completely easy to assembly & disassemble, using fasteners or glued ?
3) Any size limitation ?
4) what kind of other materials are allowable, like plastics as on mcmaster.com, glass or mirrors (sorry no idea if you could machine them or get it easily) ?

May we have some pics/sketches of the booster? Is the sheet you use pre-preg or cured sheet and what thickness?

Ground Hole Maker
- Farm implement - Device to be pulled behind a farm tractor, or hooked up to the 3-point arms of the tractor. - Desired speed is 3-5 MPH. - Make a 3" diameter hole, 18" deep in the ground every 6". (holes to be inline) - Will need to have available space for a fluid tank to be mounted above the implement. - Will need to be able to tow a trailer behind the unit.
Elecyr Hybrid Energy Storage System
Our products connect directly to solar panels or the grid and store energy to provide power at a later time. They can be interconnected to form a microgrid and share the power collected among multiple systems. Our current product starts at 15kW, weighs about 700lbs and can be expanded to a megawatt. We are developing a family of lower end systems starting at 2500 watts and weighing less than 100 lbs. We're looking for a consistent, modern, clean and attractive look that will bridge the range of products and be sufficiently visually striking to help with our entire company identity. We're looking for a clean functional design that's very simple. Think iPhone and Cuisinart. We also would like to minimize tooling costs and keep the cost of the packaging as low as possible. We have a mechanical design team so we're primarily looking for a conceptual design look rather than a detailed package. I've attached a couple images of our existing power stack and a possible design for the 2.5kW 100 lb unit. 605×330×445 mm (LWH). We are also looking to do a scaled up unit at 5kW that's also portable and a more fixed unit at 8kW that is more like the large system we have now. I've attached a sketch of how that one will assemble internally. Again, we're looking for someone to bring a consistent, recognizable and unique look to the product line while staying very simple and clean.
