summary of the Koelstra next

The Next is a new stroller from the renowned quirky Dutch brand Koelstra. That is why we searched for one for the Next iconic look with a distinctive character from the multitude of available alternatives. 

The lines and the unambiguous use of materials continues from the push rod in the rear tube. This creates the tough and sophisticated boomerang character that is recognizable from a great distance. This character is reinforced with the choice of duotone material. The design idea has also been carried through to the seat and the bassinet, with which Next one complete 3in1 stroller is. 

Scope Design was responsible for the design vision, product design and mechanical concept.

design vision

The design process started with the development of a design vision. Scope Design investigated which opportunities exist for one within this busy market distinctive design in terms of design and use of materials, both for the frame and for the upholstery. 

distinctive look

Particularly special is the unique appearance in a market characterized by a multitude of providers with a recognizable design. This iconic appearance has also remained 'intact' during the implementation of the practical features, such as the foldability, the placement options of the seat, the Maxi-Cosi and the crib. 

USABILITY AND ERGONOMICS

In the design process, much attention was also paid to usability during daily use: when folded, Next has good ergonomics for carrying and when folded, the frame does not touch the ground, thanks to impact rubber details. The Next seat can be extended so that it 'grows' with the child and in daily use the seat as a whole can remain in place when the frame is folded and a lot of attention has been paid to the comfort of the belt, which is used frequently. 

Frame AND construction

The frame has easily removable wheels and a spacious shopping basket with a transparent mesh, so that it does not look massive under the pram. In short, Next meets all usability expectations with comfort for parents and child.
