Ark Pushchairs are the result of meticulous pushchair design that aims to address the frustrations faced by parents seeking a stroller that effortlessly adapts to their active outdoor lifestyle. With a focus on convenience, comfort, and safety, Ark set out to revolutionise pushchair design to make family adventures easier and more enjoyable. Collaborating with the D2M design team, Ark pushed the boundaries of innovation to create a truly exceptional product.
The innovative pushchair designs by Ark have gained widespread acclaim and recognition within the industry. The product range launched with John Lewis and gained listings in 11 physical stores as well as on the John Lewis website. The company has been honoured with several accolades, including the silver award for best pushchair and travel system at the Nursery Online 2020 and the bronze award for best pushchair design at the Junior Design Awards 2020/21.
The pushchair design process involved extensive prototyping, testing, and collaboration with manufacturing partners. The D2M design team worked closely with Ark to create multiple prototypes, refining the innovative features and ensuring optimal functionality. Textiles development played a vital role, with thorough research and testing conducted to select the best materials that are chemical-free, naturally breathable, and hypoallergenic. This attention to detail and dedication resulted in pushchairs that meet the highest standards of quality and performance.
