Designed and built by Open-Editions for DODOcase, the store is 2,000 square feet in the front of the expansive and sunlit factory, where about 20 high-skill craftspeople make beautiful and durable iPad and tablet cases, and a growing collection of accessories. In addition to showcasing DODOcase's comprehensive line of tablet and phone cases, the new factory store highlights the new leather craft collections of wallets and accessories, and includes a maker station where a visitor can design their own DODOcase choosing from dozens of combinations of colors and textures.
DODOcase's philosophy and design brings together traditional bookbinding craft with on-demand CNC manufacturing components of their cases to keep up with changing electronic device specifications. The new factory store is meant to be an extension of that approach, with four studios within the store made available for other brands and makers to engage the Dogpatch community and sell their goods.
Note: The Factory Store was created over four weeks with 160 total hours including design, fabrication and installation and a materials budget of $6,000. It is intended as a template for any factory to deploy a engaging retail environment with a minimum up front investment, diversifying inventory and "shopability" of the store by bringing in other local makers. All materials used were modified from off the shelf commodities available at most local building suppliers. Open-Editions welcomes proposals to collaborate on new Factory Stores, or inquires about how to go about doing it yourself.
