“good design is as little design as possible. Less, but better- because is concentrates on essential aspects, and the products are not burdened with non-essentials. Back to purity, back to Simplicity.” -Dieter Rams

Task 1

Task 2

Task 3

Task 4

Initial brief- “How can we design a storage solution for spices in an Indian kitchen context which provides better opening/closing so that the task becomes less tedious and time efficient.”

Task 5

Task 6

Purpose statement- the purpose of this research is to look into the usage of spices from it’s storage tool to device a better tool for further more convenient use and storage of spices.

Task 7

Task 8

Redesigned brief- “How can we design a better storage solution for spices in an Indian kitchen context which aids to it’s effortless usage while adding to the user experience.”

#This concept in addition with push button mechanism which will aid single hand use.

#Incorporates the value of dispensing just a fixed amount of spice with one click. This would allow the the user who is anonymous to the kitchen tools, to use it efficiently from the very first use without worrying about the unwanted amount getting dispensed.

#This mechanism stores that fixed amount of spice in that space before hand.

#Least or no direct contact with the spice/ stored in air tight container. Separately storing the spices.

Task 9

Prototyping-

Task 10

#The decided form has a transformation from a circle to square to fit the mechanism and the cap efficiently.

#Handle being incorporated into the device for better gripping while using the dispenser.

#This product creates a mental model within the users for it administers the amount being dispensed with one click- one can administer how much they are putting with every click in their dishes as well as controlling it’s overdo.

#Spices in Indian context play an essential role, this product keeps the aroma of the spice intact, dismissing the mixing of different aromas as in case of spice rack.

#The window provides a look through the product to the spice, which would not just aid the refilling idea to the user but also improves the experience with an indirect contact with the spice.

#Time and experience- focusing onto the little problem areas helps in managing the time better as cooking being a swift task, this improves the over all experience of cooking eliminating the small irritations.
