4-week project in collaboration with FM Mattsson Mora
The objective was to explore how the next generation of semantic
and expressive sensor-controlled mixer tap could look and
The creative exercise started with an interaction workshop and
group research considering user needs, new functions, technologies,
experiences, materials and awareness of water consumption.
This year the students where also asked to consider the time-based
interaction between the product and the user and were asked to
visualize the user interface together with the flow and behaviour
of the water with "photo-sketching-movies".
Each student presented their final concept with a physical
model, a poster and a short "photo-sketching-movie" showing the
intended interaction between the user and the mixer tap.
