Hi Guys, I am working on a lamp in my spare time since about a year. some time ago, a design firm release a concept that is very similar to mine, not exactly the same, but close in aesthetic. I know they never saw my idea and I never saw their neither and that is not the subject of this discussion. What I would like to know is how close two object can be in aesthetic without being consider rip-off. In this situation, what would you do? I am planning to release mine in September, I dont know if they plan to release their because its a concept only, but now I see their lamp in every design blog so I consider it have been released before mine... Their lamp is porcelain/wood, mine is alu sheet/wood. Here is the one from DZ studio: And here is mine:
Thank you Cyberdemon, I got your point. But you bring another interesting topic, is it safe to show concept before releasing the actual product? Personally, I think that if someone want to steal an idea, he will do it even if the product is already available. But maybe i'm wrong, what you guys think?
