User-centred Design

Talking about user or human-centred design, so what is it all about? Basically this is the process of developing a product or experience for a particular individual. In this design process, we focus on the users and their requirements in each phase of the layout procedure. Our user-centred design process can be summarized using the following techniques which are applied to the entire product design process:

This also saves an extra kitchen tool because there is no need for using a strainer anymore. It comes with a smart locking system which anyone can just turn the lid to the right position and make sure it fits on different levels to prevent spilling and injuries when cooking the food. The lid can also be adjusted at different levels until you produce your desired pressure. Our Master Group client for this design was thrilled with the idea and it was awarded with the HK Smart Design Awards.

Idea

In this stage, the customers’ requirements are well observed and understood based on their needs using an existing or similar project into which your product will be designed. We will then gather and keep our observations in mind for the next stages.

Next we understand and analyze all the data we have gathered. We then produce lots of suggestions and recognize possibilities for designs. We will additionally evaluate and also improve the final solution in order to come up with the best output.

This is where we bring the idea into lamplight with a prototype design. We will get a target customer to experience the solution while we observe their communications. After we most have put in place all these aspects, we then come up with a really remarkable design.

Execution 

For example, let’s have a look at the cooking pot designed for our Master Group client. After all this, the design resulted in an easy to handle smart pot that helps users cook food easily and conveniently. In the common scenario of cooking pasta, people often have to use one hand to hold the lid and the other hand to hold the pot in order to pour out the water after cooking the pasta or use a strainer to drain the water but the process of always using these methods to drain the boiling water out of the pot can sometimes cause injuries because of spillage.

 

But with this design, after cooking the pasta with this pot, users only need to turn the lid to the right position and make sure it fits then they now hold the handles to drain the water through the pores in the pot while the pasta still remains inside the pot.​
