Understanding Business, Visual And Functional Challenges

Understanding Business, Visual and Functional Challenges

We conducted a thorough analysis of the source material and optimized the sign-up and login flow to improve efficiency. 

The Design team also studied competitor apps to gain insight into the optimal placement of menus and items, resulting in a faster and more streamlined user experience.

Industrial Design Ideation

Idea Generation Via Sketches

We conducted extensive research to gain a deep understanding of our core user’s daily habits, preferences, and dislikes, as well as the context in which our product is expected to be used. 

Through a combination of observational research and qualitative inquiries, we gleaned valuable insights that enabled us to deviate from conventional kitchen appliances.

Core Features

Triple Decker

Decker is designed to be used every day to cook, heat, and grill food. It is made up of a traditional electric stove, a convection oven, and a grill top to cover various aspects of cooking. So it’s not just a seasonal appliance but can be used everyday.

Core Features

Magnetic Skewers

The back base of the grill has a magnetic base to hold any metal skewer in place and making it easy to roll and grill meat or veggies.

Efficient Heat Distribution

Core Features

Stackable And Modular

With the contact points connecting each appliance, power can be transmitted easily to each of the coils independently so that the appliance is not only efficient but also can cater to various use case scenarios. With the smart docking feature, it can be easily assembled or disassembled to create multiple cooking features.

Interaction Design

Oven, Stove & Grill

We created a clear yet functional UI that displays options as and when the functionalities are selected. The display screen is a hi definition OLED display that is touch sensitive with multi touch as well as provides haptic feedback to the option selected. With the three functional elements of a stove, grill, and oven, the options for each use case are already mapped out so the user doesn’t have to navigate through a whole bunch of visual clutter thus creating a Dynamic UI.

UI Components

Drawing inspiration from Skuemorphic elements of existing physical appliances, we worked to create a sense of familiarity in the user interface but modernized and minimally depicted a lot of the interactions.
