Y2516TKD and Y2518BKD Water Dispensers by Envary Limited & Angel Shenzhen

Home > Winners > #51804


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Y2516TKD and Y2518BKD

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Water Dispensers

INSPIRATION:
The water dispenser family concept is inspired by the form language of pristine water surfaces, combined with the minimal aesthetic of scientific laboratories. The reduced visual nature of the sparsely accentuated objects also encapsulates a picturesque contrast of planar and curved surfaces; additionally emphasising the intrinsic function of the appliances with different reflective material finishes.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Designed with the needs of Chinese households in mind, the water dispensers feature an accessible front face with a spacious offset spout ensuring a seamless use for a variety of container sizes. The form factors of the products are based on a layered composition of geometric shapes for easy cleaning and open flexibility on busy countertops. The front faces matte finish is contrasted by the polished lower half that materialises the appearance of water, accentuated by the gently carved scoop.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
With the aim of uncluttering the area with the greatest level of user interaction, the front face backlit temperature LED display is invisibly located above the concavely scooped soft touch buttons, revealing itself only when being used. Further improving the ease of maintenance the detachable tray mount of the desk type dispenser is magnetic, while the snap mechanism of the wall type dispenser drip tray can be detached single handedly to empty wastewater more swiftly.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The product design section of the project kicked-off in August 2015 and finished in October 2015. The products were officially launched into the market in May 2016.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Home Appliances Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Each product consists of 7 key parts, majorities of which are produced with plastic injection molding. To achieve a compelling real-material contrast to the plastic, the top part of the spout is made from Aluminium, which is casted, CNC milled (chamfers in 45 degree diamond cut) and then anodised. The bottom part is then made from chrome plated plastic resin. As the smallest part of the spout the rippled dispense button is coated with electroforming.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Envary did an exhaustive scenario exploration of the user-centric factors of Chinese kitchens. Various users of water appliances were surveyed, thoroughly assessing the pain points people expressed. Discovered pain points ranged from hard to use interfaces, insufficient child safety, splashing water, complicated cleaning, unsuitability for large containers and bulky form factors. These clues were evaluated with a plethora of Chinese kitchens based on photos gathered from various families.

CHALLENGE:
In modern China filtered water is an indispensable must have for everyday consumption and food preparation. It is crucial that pure water, finely adjustable from hot to cold, can be easily accessed at anytime. Functional and spatial considerations impact the dispensers practicality in busy kitchen spaces, thus both dispensers were designed as ultra compact. The slim form factors help avoid potential gridlock while the geometrically clean cut appearance blends into a variety of kitchen interiors.
