FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?

Our objective is to protect them from urinary infections, meantime have an appliance that cleans automatically. During winter snowing period, we realized the difficulties for elderly and disabled friend to take their pet outdoor. As we are an architect and a project manager we design a easyuse appliance that can help them to keep their houses clean and protecting dogs of disease. Keeping in mind that a minimal design can be well integrated with many different styles of interior and the possibility to choose and customize according to the personal taste.
