A discursive project promoting and exploring warmer, more tangible interactions in today’s fast paced, convenience driven world.

created as a personal passion project in Fall 2022

I started with trying to understand tactility and micro interactions…

and then moved on to bigger parts that the user actively interacts with.

a quick look into the honest (and ugly) design process

user touch-points

usability journey highlights :

- exclusively designed to include everyone

easy pull means no spillage allowing people with hand tremors a safe way to enjoy a cup of tea.


- no overflow anytime!

need to get ready for work? simply turn the knob and the hot plate will turn off when ready

- designed for play

safe and engaging for kids – adding an element of bonding in your morning routine <3
