LEARNINGS

I had to put a lot of emphasis on aesthetics and make the size as small as possible while maintaining the airy feeling and long term functionality. To overcome the thermal concerns of an LED in a closed enclosure, I designed hidden air channels throughout the cup to overcome this challenge.

The unibody design gave it strength and also the possibility of waterproofing it for the next iteration, especially after finding out how some users would love to have it even beside the bathtub during the exhibition in Stockholm, a scenario that never crossed my mind.
