Entry Description

Having conducted primary and secondary research, the
team focused on addressing two main issues common
among the current hair dryers: portability and
outdated aesthetics, which are mostly dictated by the
layout of internal components. Our team redefined the
shape of the hairdryer based on the current and
potential technological innovations, such as induction
charging. The result: lightweight, compact, and
ergonomic, DriAir is a perfect travel companion to
every woman.

Every curve was designed with a foresight and
precision to retain the design intent. It is minimal due
to its simple and pure shape that is easily held by
hand. Size, light weight, and portable nature of it
make it an easy travel option. To further emphasize
this, it is battery operated and can be charged by
induction charging. The motto while designing it was
long lasting and low maintenance.
