ENARA AGIRREZABALA industrial design student portfolio
PERSONAL INFO I am an Industrial Design and Product Development Engineering Degree student at Mondragon University (Basque Country, Spain). I am an active, positive and cheerful person who loves learning new things everyday, team working, team learning and practising outdoor activities. I have been practising athletics for years and I enjoy being in contact with nature. Moreover, I am interested in the technical and creative sides of the product designing process. The aim of this portfolio is to show a selection of some projects I have developed since my first university year. One of them shows the whole process of our designing method, whereas the others show some interesanting decisions and steps made while designing as well as some of the skills I have achieved.
TECHNICAL & PRACTICAL
In my third course of the iIndustrial Design and Product Development Engineering Degree I can say that I am able to join communication, use and technique for creating a product or a service. Skills achieved: -Design, redesign and develop products, services and concepts dealing with the user’s and society’s needs. -Identify and reduce the environmental impact of the product throughout its life-cycle. -Persuade users using communication strategies, working on the product´s aesthetics, etc. -Suggest technically and economically viable solutions taking into account the materials and the manufacturing processes.
2D and 3D modelling and rendering
Visual comunication: 2D rendering. I have received graphic design lessons for a semester.

SAver Water saving tank TEAM PROJECT 5 weeks

Team members: Enara Agirrezabala Maitane GarcĂa Nere Karrera Jon Lamborena David SantamarĂa
Project Brief Saver, a water saving tank that allows reusing the water of the sink in the wc making use of the pressure difference between the inside and the outside, is a viable, simple, easy to use and efficient product that allows saving 20 litres per user a day. The main goal of this project was to design a product to deal with the worldâ€™s water shortage problematic by 2020. This product is going to be used at home. Due to this, Saver has been design for being comfortable for everyone (taking in account its ergonomy and being easy to use), ecocare (sustainable lifeclycle and materials and non electric powered mechanism) and making society aware of the necessity of preserving natural resources. Although, this project is being directed to the Basque Countryâ€™s market Saverâ€™s system can be implanted in all bathrooms.
Waterâ€™s situation Nowadays
at HOME Where do we waste MORE?
Although worldâ€™s 3/4 is water, only the 0,3 percent of the resources are usable, the 97,5% is salted. Moreover, water which is a necessary resource, is the most used and vainly wasted one (water leaks, the effects of the climate changing, etc.).
Near future situation It is said that water demand will increase 55% by 2050. Furthermore, the water needs will also be higher, creating impatience. Apart from that the extreme precipitation changes would surely decrease water level and the greenhouse effects would get down the drinkable water level.The prices will increase, giving the chance for happening a real catastrophy.

kefLORA Yogurt machine TEAM PROJECT 4 weeks (20h)

Project Brief Keflora, a non electric energy needed yogurt machine, is Moulinex YOGURTEOâ€? DJC1 41 yogurt machineâ€™s redesign made by following the ecodesign metodology (IHOBEâ€™s 7 steps*). The yogurt machines have not succeed in market, therefore the main objective of this project is to innovate the concept nowadays people have of those machines without forgetting the eco-designing process. In this way, this product reaches the usual yogurt consumer, specifially the eco-care ones, more effectively. The result of the eco-designing process is Keflora, an item for making yogurt from Kefir**, easy to use, dismantling and clean, aesthetically attractive and made by recycling plastics. Its whole lifecyle is taking into account.
University project Eco-Design subject *A flexible eco-design metodology where it is possible to apply quantitative an qualitative tools **Fermented milk drink made with kefir grains
Reasons for eco-designing not successful because...
Yogurt machine Lifecycle After analysing the enviromental aspects and the impact the product has during its whole lifecyling, using MET* matrix in each step of it, some improvement ideas have been made.
Focussed on families (does it need a user change?) Non effective integration in the kitchen Can be bothering to use it Buying yogurts is easier
Extraction and consumption of materials and components
Not enough publicity
Materials: recyclable and biodegradable plastic, recycling interior parts, cables without PVC, and material identification. Produce less material Select enviromentally friendly product techniques No serigraph
A lot of different components Factory production
Packaging: recycled materials, reduce weight Green transport
Reduce environmental impact
Administration: WEE directive affects to the product
Consumer: Attract consumers, creating an attractive and successful product
Market: Necessity of changing the productâ€™s standpoint, giving importance to the yogurts increasing price, advertising the product and changing the user profile
Environmental consciousness: innovate creating new product concert by applying eco-design
Use or utility
Better material quality for increasing the product life. End-life system
Innovation:Kefir New uses: make other products, easy cleaning, new forms of heating ... *M: used material in each step E: energy used T: toxic emissions
In the creation of Keflora concepts importance is given to search for new aesthetic lines that will attract consumers, as well as to reduce the number of components and materials homogeneity.
Simple Innovative identity Comfortable Easy
Different geometries have been searched to allow to reduce the neccesary space. Moreover, making the user comfortable while they are using the product has been an important point too.
Environmental Made by recycling materials Encourage recycling Recycle the materials in an easy way. Identification of the materials Energy saving
Desired quantity of yogurt can be choosen
General dimensions 310
Keflora’s cone shape’s makes pouring the yogurt inside to a vase and the cleaning easier.
The material selected for all components has been recycled PS. Excepting the cone which is made of crystal PS, the others are made of HDPS.
This machine gives the opportunity of selecting the desired quantity of yogurt and does not need any energy source for working. Cone
The product in detail
The colours, green and white (nature and pureness), its simplicity and innovative shape make Keflora different from other yogurt machines, thus will be more attractive for consumers and it is likely to be successful in the market.

Project Brief Beyeux is being created as an answer for Azimut Innovation companyâ€™s topic in the 6th edition of the 24 hours of Innovation challenge taking place in Biarritz, France. Beyeux was awarded by the second prize. The main objective was to build an attractive product for making vehicles that are not easy to see or perceive such as bicycles, perceptible. This objective was achieved, thanked to the little light or the noise that this product makes when someone is detected by the sensor inside Beyeux. This way, cars and pedestrians will be more careful and less accidents will happen. Eco-design has been taken into account in the way of achieving energy (moving charge system) and the productâ€™s aesthetics.
