This is not your mother’s hair dryer. It's modern, sleek and is ideal for travelers, students, and organized adults alike. Its powered by a classic 12-volt DC motor that is mounted horizontally which allows for its slim design. This flat and compact object is designed to fit neatly into a suitcase and its shape and rounded edges allows it to be removed with little effort. The white color mitigates the objects visibility within a dark bag and allows the item to be located with ease.
I followed minimalistic and Scandinavian design trends. I took inspiration from brands like Muji and Bruan.
My aim was to design a travel hair dryer. I explored different design solutions like collapsable handles and storable cords.
I needed a better understanding of how hair dryers were assembled so I examined internal components, fasteners and switches.
My product consumer was female and I took from colors found in my mood board.
I took a great deal of inspiration from river rocks. I explored different shapes that could accommodate internal components.
