HONG KONG, Sept. 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Committed at improving the overall quality of life for its consumers, a handful of start-ups are looking into elevating the standards. One of these companies is Skyless Design, a start-up focusing on the invention of stylish smart home appliances targeted at solving real-life problems. The company will participate in the Startup zone of the upcoming HKTDC Hong Kong Electronics Fair (Autumn Edition), which will be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre from 13-16 October 2018, to showcase their highly-anticipated line-up of exciting new products to potential investors and buyers.
Solving Problems First, Creating Product Ideas Second
Minor daily inconveniences including travelling around in soaked footwear after rainy occasions, can easily create an unpleasant situation. Matthew, co-founder of Skyless Design, is one of the many victims to such an experience. His methodology towards solving these problems is to start with a pinpoint focus on the core issue, drawing inspiration for the corresponding product solution. Skyless Design was set up to conceptualise and conceive smart home appliances that would enhance day-to-day living standards.
Eradicating Footwear Dampness with Skyless Base
Skyless Design's first product, Skyless Base, is a footwear dryer that provides superior drying and dehumidifying treatment to all shoes. Fitting perfectly into any shoe cabinet with its compact and lightweight frame, it can fully dry shoes at less than 20 minutes. Instead of using high temperatures, Skyless Base applies a mixture of cold and dry air to handle the drying process to achieve optimal temperatures without causing damage from excessive heat. Featuring lab-tested absorbent materials and an in-built UV system, Skyless Base can offer UV-disinfection and deodorisation capabilities. Equipped with ambient moisture sensors, it monitors and maintains a low-humidity environment, which can be controlled via the user's App.
Generating Greater Market Exposure at the HKTDC Fair
According to Matthew, even with novel and attractive products, start-ups typically face a dearth of public visibility, investor networks and financing access. In a bid to improve the situation faced by Skyless Design and many similar firms, trade exhibition is one of the best tools for them. At the Hong Kong Electronics Fair organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) in October last year, the unique Skyless Base footwear dryer caught the attention of many trade visitors. Through the connections made at the fair, Skyless Design managed to achieve collaborations with multiple hotel groups in Hong Kong and Macau to install Skyless Base in every room as a value-added service. Additionally, the company's market reach expanded into several foreign countries with buyers from Thailand, India and Canada. "We are both pleasantly surprised and honoured to find our products gaining popularity in these countries", said Matthew.
Set to attend the upcoming Hong Kong Electronics Fair again this October, Skyless Design will unveil their exciting new product – MonArome. Specially crafted to relieve stress, improve sleep quality and enhance work performance, MonArome is an innovative capsule-based aroma diffuser that provides the best qualities of therapeutic scents without the high cost of blending multiple expensive oils manually.
Matthew commented, "By solving life's little problems through exceptional solutions, Skyless Design is here to redefine the ideals of smart home appliances."
