DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Slim-L

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Printing Device

INSPIRATION:
The typical printer needs a certain amount of space in desk environment because of its bulky body. Moreover, due to its size, it is normally placed relatively far from its users, so the users must come near it whenever they have to use it. Not like other electronic devices becoming simpler and slimmer, the typical printer is comparatively huge and large. Slimmer and smarter printer take a step forward in this new era of smart appliances by using dead space underneath the desk.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
It suggests a new form of printer and a new way of printer usage. Unlike typical printer, which is bulky, the shape of the printer looks like the alphabet 'L'. While the existing printer is placed on a desk, on the floor, on a shelf, etc., the 'Slim-L Printer' is hung to underside of the desk.It uses the dead space, under the desk, effective for space occupation of the printer. Also, it offers better convenience because of its position, near user.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Body of the printer is placed underneath the desk, and the part of control panel is exposed to users and located close to their hand. Its tilted angle of the LCD screen is considering the viewpoint of user sitting on the chair. As it is placed close to its user all the time, it provides convenient user experience. Alphabet 'L' shaped frame itself naturally delivers the printout to the user when printing is done. Therefore, anyone in desk environment can easily use 'Slim-L Printer'.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in October 2016 in Seoul and finished in January 2017 in Seoul

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Idea Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
While the making process of the existing printer frame is complicated, the 'Slim-L Printer' produces the base body frame by extruding the aluminum alloy. Since diagonals of the body frame are all the same, the waste remaining after the cutting of the extrusion molding can be minimized. Aluminum frames, rather than typical plastic frames, are more durable. Therefore, for manufacturers, it is possible to manufacture stronger and slimmer printer with minimal cost.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
250mm x 319mm x 105mm It has fastening parts on the top of the printer. They are composed of two part so that user could attach the product underneath the table easily.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Population is growing rapidly and the inflation in population toward the cities is growing day by day. Therefore, small apartments are common in these days. As home gets smaller, household appliances are also getting simpler and slimmer. Following this trend, 'Slim-L Printer' uses dead space underneath the desk, and it can afford better desk environment to users. Moreover, as it is placed close to its user, it provides convenient and intuitive user experience. Therefore, anyone in desk environment, people of in ages, can easily print out with 'Slim-L Printer'.

CHALLENGE:
There was difficulty in keeping all the structure and spec needed inside of L-shaped slim printer. Because of its innovative form compared to the existing printer, we had to care about the elements of the printer to be perceived as a printing device.
