Dial Hair Dryer

The dial is hair dryer with simple form and new system. With the dial buttons of the handle, you can set the right temperature for yourself. It is possible to set the appropriate temperature for various types of environments, such as infant, pets, or damaged hair.

I felt that there were various use habits or environments in the use of hair dryer.
However, the conventional hair dryer was inappropriate for various situations. More detailed temperature control was needed.
While considering the shape of the control buttons, I was inspired by the dial of digital cameras.

Neat style is especially suitable for home appliances. Because it can fit in any environment.
Also it is ideal for highlighting the key point of the idea.
I used neutral, cosy colors and matt finishing for fit on its shape.

I used Rhino, Keyshot and Adobe programs.
After passing through the early research, I did rough sketches to make lots of ideas. And then summarized and refined those ideas to final design. Create 3D modeling as a final design, and apply the appropriate materials and colors with the rendering tools.

Feedback from this project is good! Although not planned for production, people like this idea.
It is always nice to receive positive feedback. It makes me feel as this product has been understood my target users.
Through this project, I developed a rendering skill with well-organized layout.
