The team behind the Ydunvie brand, already having more than 20 years of experience in providing effective and modern aesthetics systems, wanted the product to maintain an universal style, preparing for the demanding Chinese market, all the while keeping it appealing for its target group consisting mainly of females aged 15-35 who suffer from acne problems.

USAGE/ Ergonomics Workshop 

 

To better understand the hand-held products, we started with the screening of similar objects and compared different features, functions, and shapes of already available home-use cosmetic treatment devices. We also created a mood board where we shared references of materials, textures, and illustrations of feelings we want the product to cause such as cleanliness and simplicity

2.

Product Architecture Exploration

After the internal ergonomic workshop, We tried different shapes and sizes to conclude that the ergonomics of Nova™ above all should follow its function and guide the user to focus on each spot individually. Finally, we defined five possible basic product architectures of our device. Then we wrap up the Electronic components in these 5 product architectures in Solidworks to figure out the size and scale and tried these real-size mockups made with blue foam.

Concept Testing and Refinement

The next step after deciding on the shape was to make it look appealing on every user’s bathroom shelf. Designing the appearance was very exciting but also challenging. YDUNVIE emphasized that the design of the device should maintain a universal style as it is planned to be introduced in Europe and the United States later, but we both agreed that a reference to Scandinavian stylistics would nicely highlight the Danish origins of the brand, associated with Scandinavian design, like simplicity, functionality and human orientation.
