Short description

A multinational corporation, in partnership with Desall, recently has opened new design contest inviting applications to transform the classic mixer grinder into an appliance of the future addressing deep consumer pains and solving them through cutting-edge technology and design, invoking a sense of pride and ownership.

You are invited to design an innovative mixer-grinder, an appliance you are proud to own, that integrates the following features:

Sou-chef: it is customizable and versatile in terms of functionality, while being simple to use. It does not have an excessive number of accessories.
Saves time: it reduces preliminary preparation time, requires a low level of supervision during use and reduces cleaning and maintenance time after use.
Safety and convenience: it has a space-saving design, sturdy structure and reliable safety systems.
X-Factor: it presents advanced technologies, as well as smart functions related to food preparation.
Innovative: it presents one or more innovative features, which make it a product capable of conveying a new future-oriented vision within its market sector.

The product is designed for use in the kitchen and should have a style that complements both modern and luxury kitchen designs. Organiser welcomes the incorporation of innovative technologies and features beyond blending that enhance food preparation.

The product should seamlessly blend future looking style aesthetics, multiple innovative cutting-edge features and easy to operate user experience. Should be minimalistic and elegant, embodying a smart and futuristic essence. To achieve this, it’s crucial to steer clear of prominent, flashy knobs to prevent a traditional appearance. However, incorporating minimalistic switches or touch controls is acceptable. The design should feature a unique look which complements any modern kitchen.

The materials allowed are injection molded plastic, for example ABS, PC or PP. The use of glass or metal is not permitted. It is possible to propose the use of sustainable materials, if they are compatible with industrial production technologies. The surface finishes can be satin or metal effect.

The approximate dimensions of the product’s main body should be 200 mm in height x 160 mm in width x 160 mm in depth.

Entries will be judged based on the following criteria:

Degree of innovation
Aesthetic quality
Functionality/Usability
Customization
Technical feasibility
