INNOVATION (Strategic Design)
GOOD DESIGN IS UNOBTRUSIVE - Dieter Rams
This design documentation is provided upon the completion of pre-development stage. All materials supplied in this documentation is to evoke thoughts and design considerations. As such this documentation should not be considered as the finalised design for manufacture.
Concept A: Forma The focus of concept A was to shift the paradigm of urinal usage through form design. By increasing the angles of the urinal face, we aim to promote targeted stream direction with the aim of minimising splash-back. Increasing the outer faces in ways which conform to the human figure provide an increased sense of privacy in the public restroom to create a better user experience.
Concept B: Retro The focus of concept B was a retrofit solution to the health and sanitary considerations of urinals. Through the use of biodegradable spheres, doped with varying anti-microbial and anti-odour agents, we create an added feature which sanitises the urinal through everyday usage. By encasing these spheres in a biodegradable shelter, we create a disposable hygienic additive which can be readily composted once used, producing only biodegradable waste, creating a sustainable retrofit
Concept C: Endless Possibility The focus of concept C was to transform the urinal into an interactive experience for the user, moving against current perceptions of urinal form. Through the use of super-hydrophobic coatings, we transform a fabric sheet into a water-repellent surface which emerges from the wall to conform to the shape of the individual. By shifting beyond the current framework of the urinal, we create a unique and interactive experience that reshapes the userâ€™s perspective on the functional characteristics of the urinal.
