We are industrial designers and innovators.
We offer full service from design to engineering to the production of functional prototypes.
At PROTOTYPUM everything we pursue is governed by one common team vision – to create and participate in the development of sustainable products that enhance the quality of life around us.
With a creative and flexible team possessing rich experience, we are able to work on a variety of projects. We are not afraid to search out new paths. Our customers include not only industrial companies and smaller businesses, but also dynamic and rapidly-growing startups and individual designers who need help solving technical aspects of their project.
We can take hold of a project from the very beginning and lead it all the way to production, but we can also provide help for specific tasks if need be. We approach each project individually and always try to come up with the best possible solution for the technology and material.
We make the history of the future.

THE STUDIO IS GROWING, ALONG WITH NEW EQUIPMENT & CLIENTS.
We are very happy to say our team and the client base is growing steadily. We are participating in theCZECHSTARTER program, where we work with business mentors in various areas of company development. We maintain new technologies for improving our studio workshop. We have a new SLA 3D printer Prusa SL1. Now we can print very fine details and precise miniature parts. We have been involved as mentors in several hackathons, such as SMART MOBILITY HACKATHON in Prague. We are very pleased to provide internships for trainees from around the world.
WE ARE MOVING TO A LARGER OFFICE.
We expanded our cooperation with ŠKODA AUTO. Also, our office space became a little tight. We needed to move to new premises while remaining faithful to Holešovice. We stabilized the team with new projects. We completed a study of the electric Keelcraft boat. We began work with RONY PLESL on two international projects. We began developing an electron microscope control panel. We helped to launch to market the first 3D sand printed speakers DEEPTIME, co-founded by Martin Hřeben
WE ARE OPENING A STUDIO IN PRAGUE - HOLEŠOVICE.
We went from meeting in cafes to having our own office studio. New standards were set for ourselves at the Prague-Holešovice location. At the studio, wedeveloped several visions and projects for ŠKODA AUTO, designed a solitary object for the Nissan Micra project, and also created our own autonomous taxi concept. A silicone case for TREZOR T2 as well as several other projects are in development. The team continues to grow dynamically.
PROTOTYPUM STUDIO IS BROUGHT INTO THE WORLD.
The first Martin and Martin collab project was to design and develop the hardware for MIWA – a technology to allow the sales of goods without packaging. This project evolved from initial sketches to material research, to prototyping, and finally to the first mechanical device model. Our desire to design quality products and also prototypes inspired the name of our new studio: PROTOTYPUM.
MARTIN MEETS MARTIN.
Martin Hřeben, Design Engineer at ŠKODA Auto, meets Martin Žampach, Creative Director of YSoft Be3D. Both Martins had been considering the idea of creating a prototyping studio. This studio would develop innovative concepts and use the intersection of design and engineering to functionally, technically and aesthetically address products for manufacturing firms, studios or technological startups.
