This project was particularly interesting because of the balance between research and development. Our goal was to create something simple and elegant that would be accessible to young and older generations.

I worked in direct collaboration with home appliances teams in Samsung Design London and Korea to create prototypes for the next generation of products. We were asked to bring a modern vision and to create a unique experience for smart kitchens of the future. We successfully built and presented 4 prototypes to the heads of departments in Samsung Headquarters.

I was responsible for creating touchscreen UIs to control the temperature levels and glass transparency of devices. Working closely with industrial designers, I built and tested animated interfaces that integrate under the glass surfaces of each device. I designed the interfaces for Android OS to scale across different devices.
