Exploring the usability of touch screen UIs to operate home appliances.
Interfaces for life-sized washing machine and fridge prototypes.
We were tasked with bringing 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. The interfaces were designed to scale across different devices.
This project was unique because of the balance between research and production. Our goal was to create simple and elegant solutions that would be accessible to both young and older generations.
I worked in direct collaboration with home appliances teams in Samsung Design London and Seoul, Korea to create prototypes for the next generation of products.
