Foam core in the middle
The design went through a lot of iterations, with the focus being on 2 things–1) the interaction design and 2) the life cycle analysis of the design to make sure it was a sustainable solution.
This was done though
- Converting the research insights into opportunities through ideation
- Refining the ideas though making foam core mock ups and testing them. This is the most fun, foam core in the middle step.
- Modeling the selected model for details
- Building a working prototype. The plumbing was simulated using a small fountain pump concealed under the surface of the sink, with drainage drilled through the wall into the room behind.
- The presentation was a success, where people could come and try out the sink for themselves.
