Superior Industrial Design: Uplifting Home and Kitchen Experiences

Analogy’s Global Perspective: How Our USA and Germany-Rooted Industrial Design Services are Transforming Home and Kitchen Appliances.


Going in the right directions
our Approach

As a Studio that loves to solve problems, we conduct design studies such as this one and come up with interesting solutions to unique problems that others don’t think about.

Design Drivers

Envisioning kitchen appliances that are both functional and visually appealing while also prioritizing safety, ergonomics, sustainability, and connectivity was key in this case.

Global Design Quality
Current Landscape

The current kitchen appliance market is slowly but steadily evolving, focusing on delivering consumers appliances that are convenient, efficient, and personalised, with a preference for smart appliances.

Our Approach

While the home and kitchen appliance sector has made significant advances in recent years, it may be perceived as stagnant due to a combination of factors, including market saturation, limited consumer demand, and the complexity and cost of developing truly innovative products. We observed that the industry still has room for growth and innovation in the industry, particularly as consumer preferences and technology continue to evolve.

Mapping the right problems by observing users in actual environments is key. Here, we have to work in way that retains the essence of the existing object, but transform that into a unique solution without altering its personality. We use various methods like mind mapping, user empathy mapping and conducting design sprints to break down and ideate on every problem and evaluate consumer’s priorities.

01 Observing the environment

02 Researching market gaps

03 Ideating various solutions

04 Refining concepts

05 Iterative prototyping and testing

Our solution to the problem was to maintain the spatula’s surface area while enhancing its functionality and introducing an additional dimension. Through the creation of paper mockups, we were able to determine the appropriate proportions and scale, as well as design the hinge mechanism and flip guide wires.

Design Drivers For Success

01 Utilise working concepts

Over several brainstorming sessions, we develop a number of ideas and iterate by mashing up different concepts.

02 Test Drive points

A few finalised concepts are prototyped and tested with multiple designers and users and they undergo multiple rounds of iterations based on the feedback gathered.

03 Create a scalable system

A scalable strategy for home and kitchen appliances is developed using a holistic approach that merged product design, manufacturing processes, and automation.

The home and kitchen appliance industry is a multi-billion dollar global market encompassing a wide range of products, including refrigerators, ovens, microwaves, dishwashers, coffee makers, and more. In recent times, due to market saturation, pricing, and consumer demand, the industry has been facing challenges. According to a Mordor Intelligence analysis, the global home and kitchen appliance market is expected to grow at a moderate pace of 4.6% annually from 2020 to 2025.

Reimagining Kitchenware

When developing new products, we place a strong emphasis on ideation. Our team of experts generates multiple solutions and evaluates each idea based on various factors, such as functionality, scalability, feasibility, and potential impact on the user experience. Through this process, we are able to arrive at the best possible ideas for our products.

We also take great care to ensure that our kitchenware products fit seamlessly into the intended environment. We understand that the kitchen is an essential space where functionality and aesthetics are equally important. To achieve this, we consider the surrounding elements such as color palettes, textures, and materials, as well as the intended use and purpose of the product.

01 Functional Aesthetics

02 Build for scalable product families

03 Rigorous ideation to arrive to the best solution

Agnisumukh: Revolutionizing Eco-Friendly Cooking With Patented Flameless Technology
After successfully designing, creating, and testing the new spatula, we were eager to see it in action in real-world use cases. We conducted field trials with a range of home cooks to evaluate the spatula’s performance in a variety of cooking scenarios. This resulted in a successful product that has made cooking easier and more enjoyable for many people.
