The design of small, low function, high aesthetic products and accessories underlies the start up of many small design-oriented businesses whose main focus is the design of small high aesthetic-low function objects and accessories. Companies such as Fink Design, Mambo, Dinosaur Designs, etc., have successfully built on their understanding of market and manufacture to the point where they have international reputations and market share. Understanding what makes a design attractive, feasible, and economic to manufacture on a low threshold basis is fundamental to success or failure in this endeavour.
