CoolCollect® Outdoor pick-up locker
Customer Coolcenter Forssa Oy
Design Jukka Jokinen & Heikki Konu
CoolCollect® Outdoor Lockers are designed for the delivery of food and consumer goods purchased from the online store. Outdoor solutions operate independently and can be used, for example, in the parking lots of grocery stores, in densely populated areas or along busy roads. CoolCollect® Outdoor Locker is transferable and available 24/7.
“We wanted to update the appearance of the outdoor locker and decided to use the help of an external design agency. The project went very well and the end result was better than I could have hoped for.”
Sauli Hakala, CEO Coolcenter Forssa Oy
DESIGN PROCESS & PRODUCTION
We begin the design process by studying the market situation of the product under design. This comparison helps to understand the competitive situation of the product and helps to delimit the features of the concept.
The sketching is usually done by hand and is based on creative thinking and ideation. We like to consider many options and make a lot of drawings first and then narrow down the options to find the best idea concept.
In 3D modeling, the shapes and exact details of the product can be precisely defined with the help of editable 3D models. We use our own 3D printer to create models of product concepts, which can be used to show how the different features of the product actually look and feel like.
Before a product really exists, we can create rendered images by 3D modeling and rendering the product concept. This way the customer can see how the finished product would look before the first prototype is created.
Prototype & Manufacturing
The prototype of the locker was manufactured at CoolCenter’s factory in Forssa. We went to the site to approve the model and work out the last details with the customer.
