Bamboo Charcoal Ring Moisture Absorption by Jimmy Chen

Home > Winners > #81136


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Bamboo Charcoal Ring

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Moisture Absorption

INSPIRATION:
In some season, it adapts to the rapid growth of various germs because of too much moisture, which can easily cause food spoilage, peculiar smell of clothes and electronic components damped. Most of the bamboo charcoal or moisture-proof desiccant bag products sold on the market are pocket-shaped balls supported by embossed soil. After a period of use, the balls will swell and become clogged, and the balls will stick together, thus reducing the efficiency of moisture absorption and deodorization.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Bamboo Charcoal Ring is a hygroscopic deodorizing product. New material choices (konjac sponge) further increase product surface area and adhesion. The user also can wring and dry the Ring to increase its efficiency and frequency. The new design gives the possibility of combining bamboo charcoal with bases of different materials and shapes. Consumers can choose different bases according to the decoration style of the house and the use of scenes. It enhances the fun and playability of the product

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
New material choices further increase product surface area and surface adhesion. At the same time, the physical properties of konjac make it possible to wring and dry the Ring to increase its efficiency and frequency. In the production process, it is also possible to use a material such as nylon instead of steel to manufacture mold, thereby reducing the production cost of the product. Consumers can choose different bases according to the decoration style of the house and the use of scenes.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in September 2018 in Beijing and finished in November 2018 in Guangzhou, and was chosen one of 50 Young Professionals to compete in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2019 for free.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Bamboo Carbon Ring is made of activated bamboo charcoal, diatom mud, bentonite and konjac sponge. The konjac sponge has a strong affinity for water by macromolecule chain with cyanogen and amino groups. The konjac sponge also gives its three-dimensional shape and loose porous structure, increasing its surface area of contact with air. In addition, it is renewable and biodegradable. Activated carbon, Diatom mud and bentonite can absorb impurities in the air, eliminate odor and absorb moisture.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
product dimension:140mm x 140mm x 70mm

TAGS:
decoration, homeware, ecofriendly, recyclable, deodorization, hygroscopic, green

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
We adopt the methods of paper collection and comparative test and found that nearly all hygroscopic products have poor water transitivity, high efficiency in the surface and inefficiency at the bottom and core. We test cellulose-based macromolecule polymer as the main material. It adopts chemical adsorption by macromolecule chain. Molecular diffusion caused by concentration difference makes water uniformly adsorbed to the whole body. A small amount of diatomite mud and bentonite are supplemented to enhance its physical adsorption capacity.

CHALLENGE:
The most difficult point of the project is to find a suitable carrier for activated bamboo charcoal. It needs to be porous, environmentally friendly and cheap, without affecting the efficacy of other ingredients. The proportion of different components will affect the efficacy of the product. It is also a serious challenge to achieve a balance among many factors to maximize the function of moisture absorption and deodorization of the product.
