Ambi Climate Mini Smart Air-conditioned Controller by Jervis Chua

Home > Winners > #122039


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Ambi Climate Mini

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Smart Air-conditioned Controller

INSPIRATION:
The design was inspired by the calmness and warmth of a ceramic teacup placed on top of a wooden coaster. We’ve found this references to be most appropriate for a high-tech product because it makes the device feel welcoming and friendly. It humanizes technology and removes the intimidation factors out of the product.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Ambi Climate mini uses A.I. to learn user's comfort preferences. It then automatically adjust and manage the user’s air-conditioner. The form is designed to be multi-orientational and to blend in. It always looks right side up whether it’s mounted on the wall or place on the table. The use of beech wood "coaster" makes it look comfortable in any home or office space. All these considerations give users plenty of options on where to place their Ambi Climate Mini.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The device is operated using the Ambi Climate App, available on both iOS Appstore and Google Play store. The device can be paired with the AC simply by following the setup process in the app. Once the device is paired, users simply give feedback by telling the app if they are feeling too hot, too cold, or comfortable from time to time. In about 7 days, Ambi Climate's A.I. learns the user's preference and adjusts the AC automatically.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in April 2019 in Hong Kong and manufacturing began in August 2020. Ambi Climate Mini officially launched in October 2020.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The device requires generous ventilation to allow the internal thermometer sensor to get an accurate reading of ambient temperature. For this reason, vents are strategically engineered to be hidden in assembly gaps without needing to add unsightly holes on the body. The generous hidden venting makes the form as compact and as minimal as possible.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
110.27mm x 46.83 mm x 24.52 mm

TAGS:
friendly, honest, simple, compact, flexible, intuitive, warm

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Research data from the Company's flagship product was used for this project. Interviews were conducted to learn customers' preferences and their style association. A design language strategy was then established for Ambi Climate, allowing future products to use the same design language and philosophy, and maintain a consistent identity for the brand's product line.

CHALLENGE:
The challenge was to balance a premium build quality and cost of manufacturing. The team achieved this by making internal electronics as compact as possible, therefore, reducing material cost and leaving some budget for tighter tolerances, and use real beech wood to elevate the design.

PROFILE:
Ambi Labs is an IoT startup founded & headquartered in Hong Kong. Inspired by the concept of “Ambient Intelligence”, we believe that truly smart technology should appear simple and seamless – fading into the background and augmenting the user’s lifestyle. Good technology should be natural and intuitive; it shouldn’t require too much effort, but should “know” what you want, and this is what leads us ahead. We achieve this through deeper user insights and the use of AI.
