Interview with Lisse Van Cauwenberge on Dimdim Cradle, rocking chairs

Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
When I was asked to be a godmother, I wanted to design something for the baby and the parents.
Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
I'm looking for a company to lease the production rights and who sells Dimdim. I would like to work with royalties.
Who is the target customer for his design?
Young parents, who have a good sense for design. And the grandparents, who like to have the baby visiting but don't like the baby stuff that are a taking huge place in their living area.
Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
First I sketched a lot. afterwords I drew it in 3D in vector works.
What is the most unique aspect of your design?
It's the first cradle that becomes two chairs when it's not being used anymore.
Who did you collaborate with for this design? Did you work with people with technical / specialized skills?
I collaborated with different companies in Belgium to produce my prototype.
What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
The technical aspects of the chairs, to find a good solution that doesn't attract any attention.
How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
Dimdim was published on different blogs. A design award contacted me. I'd had given an exclusive invitation to join the competition.
