Research & Development
Designed for Urban Commuters
Narvalo, from University Project to Startup
The concept of Narvalo begins at the Politecnico di Milano School of Design, were I research and develop the topic of 'respiratory protection against pollution' during my Master Degree Thesis. At the same time, the project is selected as one of the winners of Switch2Product, a competition that selects innovative projects in collaboration with Polihub and Deloitte.
I was also selected as a 'Talent in Residence' at Polifactory (Makerspace and Research Lab @Polimi), giving me the opportunity to experiment with digital manufacturing technologies.
During the final development stages I pitched the project to BLS, a company specialized in engineering and producing respiratory protection devices for industrial use, who immediately showcase their interested in the project, giving me the opportunity to startup Narvalo as
Co-Founder and CEO.
During the following years (2020-2022) we have launched a Kickstarter Campaign, obtained a Red Dot Award Product Design and were selected for the ADI Design Index, and furthermore, amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic, the global electronics component shortage and contained resources of the Startup were able to design, source and deliver thousands of products to our clients.
