We bring new ideas and meaningful solutions into the dynamically changing environment of today's connected society.

Everything we pursue in the Prototypum is governed by one common team vision – to create and participate in the development of new sustainable technologies and products that enhance the quality of life around us.

With a creative and flexible team possessing rich experience, we are able to work on a variety of projects. We are not just designers, we are also nerds, geeks and hardcore engineers who are not afraid to search for new paths. Our customers include not only industrial companies and smaller companies, but also dynamic and rapidly-growing startups and individual designers who need to technically solve a technical subcategory of their project.

We can take hold of a project from the very beginning and lead it all the way to production, but we can also provide precise help for specific tasks if need be. We approach each project individually and always try to come up with the best possible solution for the technology and material.

Let’s make the history of the future.

OUR STORY

January 2018

WE ARE MOVING TO THE LANGER SPACE OFFICE.

We expanded our cooperation with ŠKODA AUTO. Also, our office space became a little tight. We needed to move to new premises while remaining faithful to Holešovice. We stabilized the team with new projects. We processed a study of the electric Keelcraft boat. We began work with RONY PLESL on two international projects. We began developing an electron microscope control panel. We helped to launch to market the first 3D sand printed speakers DEEPTIME, co-founded by Martin Hřeben.

May 2017

WE ARE OPENING A STUDIO IN PRAGUE - HOLEŠOVICE.

We went from meeting in cafes to having our own office studio. New standards were set for ourselves at the Prague-Holešovice location. At the studio, we developed several visions and projects for ŠKODA AUTO, designed a solitary object for the Nissan Micra project.  Also created our own autonomous taxi concept. A silicone case for TREZOR T2 as well as several other projects are in development. The team continues to grow dynamically.

March 2016

PROTOTYPUM STUDIO IS BROUGHT INTO THE WORLD.

The first Martin and Martin collab project is in designing and developing the hardware for MIWA  – a technology to allow the sales of goods without packaging. This project evolved from initial sketches to material research, to prototyping, and finally to the first mechanical device model. Our desire to design quality products and also prototypes inspired the name of our new studio: PROTOTYPUM.

February 2015

MARTIN MEETS MARTIN.

Martin Hřeben, Design Engineer at ŠKODA Auto, meets Martin Žampach, Creative Director of YSoft Be3D. Both Martins have the idea in their heads to create a prototyping studio. This studio would develop innovative concepts and use the intersection of design and engineering to functionally, technically and aesthetically address products for manufacturing firms, studios or technological startups.
