Progressing to UCA: BSc Industrial Design
Materials: stainless steal
This project aims to tackle parts of environmental issues through design. Inspired by the demand for herb pots sold in local supermarkets, I explored the integration between a product and technology to support indoor planting. Through research and observation, herb pots are shown to not only enhance good environment in a kitchen, but they can also help save money and reduce individual plastic pre-cut herbs packaging in a long term. However, planting indoor requires a sufficient amount of light and water for each type of plants. This demand happens to coincide with the excess supply of rinsing water from dish draining. Therefore, I wanted to incorporate these aspects of both activities into one product.
Dribbo – The smart dish drainer is designed to encourage sustainability by reducing plastic packaging from supermarkets and saving water at the same time. It integrates the dish drainer rack with the LED grow light to support indoor plant cultivation. The structure is designed to collect water dripping from crockery and cutlery into the drainer to water users’ plants instead of letting it be wasted. The interlocking stainless sticks are designed to make Dribbo adjustable and flexible to fit every customers’ needs.
Moreover, the material is also an important element to consider through the design process. To achieve the sustainability objective, I use stainless steel to be the main material, as it is recyclable, light and long-lasting.
Apart from that, in order to help indoor plant grown effectively, the LED light controlled by the application “DribboConnect” will help users to look after their plants with minimal effort and time. By choosing a plant type on the application, the amount of proper light that suits each type of plants will be set automatically.
