of Studio DARROW
DARROW is the combination of the word “ARROW” with its whole world of precision.
The “D” stands for “Design”, because it is the way a product or a living space is designed that gives us emotion.
It is the combination of these two universes that offers you a beautiful design: targeted and endearing.
Our studio is located in Lille (France), the nerve centre of Northern Europe, elected World Capital of Design in 2020.
Whether for the design of a product or a living space, our process is made up of 4 main stages.
Every creative process starts with a phase of exchange and analysis that allows us to identify the story telling.
Your environment (positioning, targets, competitors, products and services, etc.), as well as the opportunities linked to the project (current collections, uses, functions, possible styles, …) will complete the framework of our intervention.
The fruit of our exchange coupled with our analysis will allow us to begin the conceptualization phase: an ideas book.
Right from the sketches, we talk about materials, type of manufacture, sourcing, price, packaging and logistics to be sure that all ideas are “maketable”.
Because the most innovative ideas come to us when we take a step back!
The studio work on 3D modeling for the ideas selected in the ideas book to enable you in a better decision-making process.
For living spaces, this stage is essential for maximizing square meters with a tailor-made interior design, integrating respect for norms and standards.
We support you in your choices before launching the “development” phase.
From a beautiful idea, combining aesthetics, functionality and innovation, we create the technical files.
All the elements necessary for production or fitting out (plans, technical details, finishes, variations and assembly methods) are compiled in a file for your factories or manufacturers.
As you will have understood, we take care of coordinating the partner(s) in the production process up to the series launch or implementation.
Because we are proud of our customers, we do everything we can to contribute to your success.
Time-to-market is essential in our business, which is why we guarantee you a rapid deployment for maintain your market position.
From idea to deployment, we guide you in your strategic decisions throughout the project lifecycle.
We can support the search of manufacturers in France, in Europe or worldwide, whether it is for a single product or a larger series.
