The screen will show the different coffee options and the user will have to drag the chosen one into the digital cup.
After the coffee comes out, the user can choose some toppings and add them by shaking the digital icon.
UFIX - Interface: lighting features
2 Detail. Once the drink is selected, a light will be projected on the cup showing the amount of coffee and milk. The user can adjust the proportions through the screen and will see the changes on the lights in the cup.
UFIX - Technical drawings and model
* All dimensions are in mm. The modelling phase was very important in this project in order to know if all the technical devices could fit inside the machine. Even though it was made of foam with some painted clay for the screen, the model gave an idea of proportions. It was also used to test the ergonomics.
"From the table to..." was the brief from wich the product was thought: ideas and ways to be nomadic inside the domestic environment. The aim of the project was to explore a possible integration between Fratelli Guzzini's catalog and iGuzzini lighting catalog, creating a hybrid where light would be a complementary element. Booklit is a versatile bookholder and noteboard with a rechargeable light that can be used in different environments

UP 20 The stool as a tool
UP 20 is the result of a briefing that asked to design a stool which should be used for searching things. The production constrains were that it must be made just curving material. The stool can be placed either in public or private spaces such as kitchens, living rooms or libraries with high storage levels. Teacher: Team: Role:
Hub Ubbens Andrea Panzera Concept, 3D modelling, rendering, prototyping
UP 20 - Research and function
46 cm seat with storage place underneath
Top part rotation from central axis
20 cm taller and two steps to go higher
After researching some stools that had been made curving material and that were used to go up, we found a problem: the surface in which the user seats shouldn't be the same one in which he stands because it will become dirty. For that reason we thought of an element that could turn so that the user didn't seat where he was going to put his feet.
Materials: bended layers of bamboo plywood and fiberglass to reinforce the structure.
UP 20 - Function Rotate the top part:
Grab the top part and pull it up to Slide the pin from the rectangular part to the circle
Rotate 180 degrees inside the circle
Place it back again in its initial position
Grab the stool from both sides to pick it up. The down part wont swing thanks to the shape of the joint.
UP 20 - Technical drawings
UP 20 looks like a nice classic piece of furniture made with curved plywood with the advantage that if the user stands up on it, the surface where he sits will remain clean, not as what happens with chairs, for example. It was a big deal to try to solve that in the simplest possible way and just 2 weeks but we learned that simplicity is always better for the user and can make the product look nice. We also learnt how important is to work with models in order to try the usability and check proportions. With just this stool, the user will be able to sit, reach high levels of storage and still have a hygienic seat after that. *All dimensions are in mm.
UP 20 - Product in context
Occhiello is an installation thought for the Milano Design Week that reveals an intimate and introspective moment in which a person discovers through different points of view some values and attributes that are related to the Italian panino and that emphasize the idea of a healthy modern meal. The user will learn that he is an essential ingredient to this composition.
A mirror installation for Panino Giusto Milano Design Week 2018 Teacher: Team: Role:
Matteo Ragni, Antonio de Marco Sofia Perazzolo, George Saghbini Concept, 3D modelling, rendering
OCCHIELLO - Concept
A mirror is a powerful object that can make people discover things they could not see. It shows different reflections and also different points of view. Occhiello is an installation based on those attributes of the mirrors.
OCCHIELLO - First ideas
Occhiello is the evolution of the idea of creating a strong experience based on:
OBSERVATION REFLECTION DISCOVERY
The installation wanted to play with different reflections of the user, a decomposition of the image, allowing the discovery of hidden words...
OCCHIELLO - Technical drawings and materials
*All dimensions are in mm.
OCCHIELLO - User experience
Approach the installation and discover
Which are the values of a good meal?
The dish has some words written on it that cannot be seen unless the user looks to the mirrors. When a person stands in front of Occhiello, can see one word reflected in each mirror, except the middle one, which is facing the user instead of the dish. In this way, the user understands which are the values of a good meal and that one important value it's the person itself.
OCCHIELLO - Product in context
This project was a very interesting experience to learn about how to solve technical details in order to simplify the production. We had the opportunity to exhibit it during Milan Design week and realize that objects need to tell the visitor a story
A product for patients with hypotonia
Hypotonia means “decreased muscle tone“ and people who have that sickness cannot hold their head up. There is a product called “Head Active“ which helps them with that and this project consisted in improving the product.
Teacher: Team: Role:
Matteo Bravi I started alone and Diego Barba helped in the end Concept, 3D modelling, rendering, prototyping, user testing
HEADACTIVE REDESIGN - Research
This pictures show the original Head Active, a product held by a hanger attached to the wheelchair that keeps up the head of the patient. It was observed to notice its weaknesses and be able to do a brainstorming in order to solve them. These were the problems found:
1. One single piece: difficult to adjust to the user and the chair. 2. Made with plastic: hurts the patient. 3. Rigid materials on the top: hurt the patient if the head goes to the side. 4. Fixed piece: it does not allow rotation.
HEADACTIVE REDESIGN - Brainstorming
In order to find the solution, there were two main ideas:
1. Divide the product in two parts 2. Add a "rotational element" like a sphere.
With two parts, one could be attached to the hanger while the other could be comfortably adjusted to the user. For that reason, there was a brainstorming to study the different shapes that the part adjusted to the user could have. The aesthetics were also something to work.
HEADACTIVE REDESIGN - Prototype These were the solutions achieved by the prototype:
1. Two pieces: easy to adjust. 2. Covered with fabric: softer
3. Elastics on the side: they act as shock absorbers.
4. Sphere added: allows rotation. 5. Aesthetics: similar to a headband.
To test the possible solutions, the prototype phase was really important. The one that worked the best was done with this process: -Cutting plastic support for the headband -Sewing fabric and velcro around it and adding buttons to attach them to the other part -3D printing the stick to place on the hanger and the sphere -Adding elastics to the sphere -Assembling everithing together and adjusting measures
HEADACTIVE REDESIGN - Materials proposal The project was rethought in Scuola Politecnica di Design with a team mate's help and this is the materials proposal to manufacture the real product. With the first part of the project I learnt how to work with a particular user, listen to her needs and try to solve them. It was a really positive experience to have feedback and learn how to adapt the product to the user instead of trying the opposite. With the second part of the project we learnt different processes and new materials and possibilities to manufacture a product for the market and not just for one user.

Modular set to introduce greenery in offices
The brief of the project was to redesign the workspace for 2030 so there was a research on the benefits of introducing plants into co-working spaces in order to clean the air, reduce sickness and make the place attractive. Groworking goal was then to design a modular space divider which could held plants.
Teacher: Ilkka Suppanen Team: Ali Beydoun, Hussein Beydoun, Omar Qubain Role: Concept, sketching, 3D modelling, rendering
GROWORKING - Concept
+ Air plant 50
= Modular system
Air plants can bring benefits to the working space such as eliminating bacteria, reducing stress or boosting creativity. Therefore the concept is to design a set of objects that will introduce greenery to co-working spaces and will also serve as space dividers. These objects must brighten the space and induce a sense of happiness and belonging among users.
