The research and the development of the product was made in the dental technicians labs. The focus was on the ergonomy of the working space and on the moves the technician does to apply the ceramics, so this product was born out of necessity of a well organised and uncluttered working space, where the technician can put the colors in a specific order
The main challenge was to improve the dinamics of the dental technician movements and to minimise the risk of mixing up the colors on the working plate. Among the materials tested for the palette, I tested metal, wooden, compositeand plastic boards, and it was really demanding to find the right material that can fit the ceramic colors
