Winsted Design of the Month: Mission Control

Winsted mission control room - custom end panels

A space robotics company that seeks to make space accessible to the world requested a design and solution for their new mission control room. The company’s lunar lander delivers payloads to the Moon for companies, governments, universities, non-profits, and individuals.

The company is also developing advanced space robotics capabilities such as terrain relative navigation, mobile robotics for lunar surface operations, and reliable computing systems for mission-critical applications.

This organization is seeking a reliable, mission-critical furniture solution.


Getting Started

In this case, the end user provided a diagram of their space which showed desired measurements of the room and desired furniture arrangement. They also provided outtakes from the Winsted catalog as a basis of design in order to start the process of engineering the solution and creating a parts list.

A customized design was created using free DIY design software, WELS from Winsted. The console bases for the project consist of standard size Sight-Line series bases featuring Comfort Edge work surfaces and customized end panels with the customer's logo. The bases include a significant amount of space for storing reference materials which are consealed with doors.
