From Concept to Tangible: Sa Le Glass Board Divider

Ideation

Sa Le Glass Board Divider was born from our desire to maximize the function of a whiteboard for smaller dynamic offices that did not have the wall space to feature a traditional white board. We began by researching existing designs and was largely inspired by how Springboard was able to make their glass boards beautifully work as also mobile partitions. 

စိတ္ကူးပံုေဖာ္ျခင္း

စေလ Glass Board Divider ဟာ ေသးငယ္ၿပီး အခန္းေတြကန္႔ဖို႔ Whiteboard ခ်ိတ္ရန္ ေနရာက်ယ္က်ယ္၀န္း၀န္းမရွိေသာ ရံုးခန္းငယ္မ်ားအတြက္ တစ္ခ်က္ခုတ္ ႏွစ္ခ်က္ျပတ္ ပစၥည္းထုတ္လုပ္ေပးခ်င္တဲ့ ဆႏၵကေနျဖစ္ေပၚလာတာပါ။ ဒီဇိုင္းသုေတသနျပဳလုပ္ေနရင္း Springboard ကေန ေရြ႕ေျပာင္းရလြယ္ကူတဲ့ မွန္သားခ်ပ္ Divider ေတြကို ျမင္ၿပီး အျမင္လဲလွ စာေရးျခစ္ႏိုင္တဲ့ Glass Board Divider ျပဳလုပ္ဖို႔အႀကံရခဲ့ပါတယ္။

Prototyping & Pivoting 

The silhouette was refined to its simplest form -- a glass board (in multiple colors, of course) with sleek legs. We wanted to get the largest possible writing space without compromising its strength for the rigors of commercial use. After creative deep dives with our design consultant, Ko Myo Thaw, we opted for a beautifully curved wooden support that would securely hold markers. The Sa Le Glass Board Divider went through several design stages and re-prototyping because of its unique form and versatility.

We wanted to achieve many things, but to actualize Sa Le into its final form was another matter. Our first prototype featured a smaller glass board with a thicker frame. We needed to gauge how much weight of the glass the wooden structure could actually hold. Once we figured out the physics, we decided to add a few craftsmen details that would elevate the look to a contemporary sophistication -- like narrowing of the arc or embedding whiteboard marker holders in the arch with a metal touch.

စမ္းသပ္ျပဳလုပ္ျခင္း

စေလရဲ႕အရိုးရွင္းဆံုးပံုရိပ္က အေရာင္းအေသြးေရြးခ်ယ္လို႔ရတဲ့ မွန္သားျပင္နဲ႔ ေသးသြယ္ရွင္းလင္းတဲ့ေျခေထာက္ေတြပါ။ စာေရးလို႔ရတဲ့ေနရာကို တတ္ႏိုင္သမ ွ် အမ်ားဆံုးျဖစ္ေစခ်င္ၿပီး ဒီ့အတြက္လည္း ခိုင္မာတဲ့ဖြဲ႕စည္းပံုကို ထိခိုက္တာမ်ိဳးလဲမျဖစ္ေစခ်င္ပါဘူး။ ဆယ့္ေျခာက္ကိုးဆယ့္ေျခာက္ရဲ႕ ဒီဇိုင္းအႀကံေပး ကိုမ်ိဳးေသာ္နဲ႔ ေသခ်ာေဆြးေႏြးတိုင္ပင္ၿပီးတဲ့အခါမွာ လွပစြာေကြးထားတဲ့ သစ္သားေျခေထာက္နဲ႔လုပ္မယ္ဆို ဆံုးျဖတ္ခဲ့ၾကပါတယ္။ စေလဒီဇိုင္းရဲ႕ ေျခေထာက္ဟာ ဒီဇိုင္းေပါင္းမ်ားစြာနဲ႔ စမ္းသပ္ျပဳလုပ္ခဲ့ၿပီးမွ ေနာက္ဆံုးျမင္ေတြ႕ရတဲ့ ပံုစံကို ရရွိခဲ့တာပါ။

စေလနဲ႔ပတ္သက္ၿပီး အမ်ားႀကီးျပဳလုပ္ခ်င္ေပမဲ့ လက္ေတြ႕အေကာင္အထည္ေဖာ္တဲ့အခါ အခက္အခဲေတြရွိခဲ့ပါတယ္။ ပထမဆံုး အစမ္းထုတ္လုပ္တဲ့ စေလ Glass Board Divider ဟာဆိုရင္ မွန္သားျပင္ကေသးၿပီး ေျခေထာက္က နည္းနည္းပိုႀကီးပါတယ္။ သစ္သားေျခာေထာက္က မွန္ရဲ႕အေလးခ်ိန္ကို ႏိုင္မႏိုင္စမ္းၾကည့္ဖို႔ . လိုအပ္ေနတာေၾကာင့္ပါ။ စေလရဲ႕ေနာက္ကြယ္က ရူပေဗဒဆိုင္ရာကိစၥေတြကို ေျဖရွင္းအၿပီးမွာ လက္မႈပညာပိုင္ဆိုင္ရာ အေသးစိတ္ေလးေတြကို လိုက္ထည့္ပါ တယ္ — မွန္ကို ေထာက္ကန္ထားတဲ့ သစ္ေျခေထာက္ရဲ႕အေကြးကို ပါးလိုက္တာမ်ိဳး၊ Whiteboard Marker တင္ထားႏိုင္ဖို႔ အခ်ိဳင့္ထည့္တာမ်ိဳးေလးေတြပါ။
