What makes your product bold and innovative?

Its a unique and useful idea that will help improve Nespresso's goal to create a long-lasting relationship customers. The product is a positive solution to one of daily struggle that I have personally faced and seen other people face. The creative design allows customers to enjoy their book/project/coffee while relaxing at home or in an airport where you can't find a table.

Which target group is this product aimed at?

This product is the perfect solution for anyone who uses a smart phone, tablets or reads books. If you have a long commute on a bus or a train, it still helps you on your way. Any age group will have a beneficial use for this product.

Why is secondary aluminum the perfect material for your idea?

Given that you want this product to be lightweight and sturdy at the same time, recycled aluminum becomes the perfect go to material. It gives your the strength required to hold moderately heave multimedia devices and the design allows it to be lightweight. The Ball-Socket joints are easy to make by molding secondary aluminum in the right shape and size, give your flexibility, with keeping some rigidity to the platform.
