RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Harmony was designed and finalized after 2 years of research. The final dimensions and angels were chosen after building and trying a wide variety of prototypes.

CHALLENGE:
Our biggest challenge was to ensure the assembling will be fast and easy for untrained users. for that, I designed the inner parts asymmetrical, so there is only one correct way to fix it all together. every part has its own precise place.
