DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Flowo

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Typewriter

INSPIRATION:
The idea at the foundation of Flowo (Flow Word) is to give new life to a tool such as the old typewriter that is no longer used nowadays. Thanks to computer, tablet smartphone we have never ending solutions to type and save our texts, notes or books. The issue when using these devices to type is that the quantity of information, inputs, notifications they can send affects the writer's ability to concentrate, even the more disciplined one's.Flowo is the concept of a modern typewriter intended for a sole purpose: type without distractions.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Flowo's design is inspired by the main parts of a classic typewriter, thus the keyboard, the paper roller and the side knobs that allow by rotation, to insert the paper and move it forward. The device consists of a main body which is black and cylindrical and recalls the old roller plus two side control knobs that are use as follows: the left knob allows navigation on the device's menu, while the right one allows to scroll the document moving from one row to the other or from one page to the following.the main body expands with a backlit keyboard that allows typing. Text is displayed on an e-ink screen located on the main body.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Works like an old typewriter. You type on the keyboard and the text is displayed in the curved e-ink display. The left knob allows navigation on the device's menu (create new document, save document, open document ect.), while the right one allows to scroll the document moving from one row to the other or from one page to the following.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
the research that has been done for the Flowo design is essentially based on giving a modern and functional design to an object now in disuse like the old typewriter. the basis of the project was taken into account the simplicity of use like the old typewriter but at the same time using modern technology (e.g. paper was eliminated and an e-ink display and an internal memory were used to store documents ).

CHALLENGE:
The greatest difficulty was to give a new design to an object (the typewriter) by now consolidated over time but also no longer used. the main idea was to keep some parts of the flowo design that recalled the old typewriter but at the same time have a modern and functional design. the keyboard is very minimal, the display is curved to remember the old roller where the paper slides while the side knobs that were used to slide the paper are now used to navigate the menu and scroll the pages. The materials used for the production of flowo are all eco-sustainable and the plastic used is recycled plastic to have a minimal environmental impact.
