of a Hairdryer
: Prof Mohan Bhandari
project aims to create a new identity for personal hairdryers. Hairdryers
in two categories, personal and professional, were studied. The activity
analysis of the hairdryers in use revealed the problems for which solutions
were suggested in both the said categories; the personal hairdryer was
chosen for further exploration in identity-based and semantic approaches
to form generation. In the final concept, the motor and turbine are separated
from the outlet of the air stream. Priority was given to safety, as many
people had faced the problem of wet hair getting sucked into the dryer
when reaching out towards areas they cant see, like the back of the head.
The same theme is carried over to the formal expression of the product.
