Today much of the design work in bengs.services AB (name of the company in
which the design work is executed) is done in 3d -CAD (Solidworks) environment.
Carinas long design experience and background in fine woodworking, combined
with the use of the latest 3D-CAD tools makes it possible for us to cover the
whole design process, from initial sketches through visualisation with photo
realistic print outs and prototype drawings in 3D-CAD, to being able to
incorporate manufacturing constraints and take active part in the design and
production set up down to the floor level in the factory.
To be able to take into consideration, on a very practical level, every aspect of the furniture design,
construction and packaging, is a unique and appreciated aspect of Carina Bengs design.
The worlds most selling furniture design!
- a result of designing top sellers for Ikea for 25 years.
