概要

This water purifier and ice maker removes contaminants from kitchen tap water and offers hot or cold clean water and pure ice. Its filter uses scientifically proven reverse osmosis to remove fine particles, rust, chlorine, bacteria, and even radioactivity from tap water. The product is small, but hot or cold water or ice can be obtained with a touch, and although the structure is complex, it's very simple to use. Its size is minimized for space efficiency. Its exterior was designed to give an image of clean water and ice, and the curved front surface evokes those images.

デザインコンセプト

This product handles water, an essential part of life, so it was designed with a focus on feelings of safety and cleanliness. It's a minimal design with the gentle curved lines of nature.

背景

This is a low-priced, small (27% smaller than previous models) ice and water purifier with a filter and optimized freezing system with no need for a tank. Although the ice function has been added, it is still smaller than regular water purifiers.

デザイナーの想い

Our greatest emphasis during product development was design of functions. Since the product handles water and ice, we wanted an external resemblance to those functions. The front design resembles flowing water with ice floating in it. Natural curved and straight lines meet to evoke images of pure water and ice. We tried to avoid complicated functions when possible to make the product easy to use.

企画・開発の意義

Design focused on making the product look smaller. The optimized structure was already small, but we tried to make it look even smaller by using curved lines gathering from the main body toward the front while reducing the size of the front surface to make it look smaller than the actual product size. As well, all interior components of the CHPI-380 are made of eco-friendly recycled ABS.

創意工夫

A design to evoke images of clean water and ice> The overall design motif is based on the water and ice this product handles. The front was inspired by the flowing surface of water. Flat surfaces give way to curved surfaces and then flatten again, like the appearance of flowing water. The control panel sits like ice floating in that water. Invisible polycarbonate materials were used to emphasize the image of clean ice.We wanted people to know just from seeing the outside what kind of product this is.The ice function is on the left and water purifying function on the right to make the functions easy and intuitive to see and use.
