This exercise was to select a home based scenario as the area of interest and find the problems in that area and solve it through design. So selected my area of interest as Home Kitchen and started to research.
First of all I observed various kitchens in different parts of the world. This made it easier to choose the target audience. And then moves to survey for that I send an event based questionnaire which helped me to identify problems in various stages preceding, during and after the cooking activity. Then I did a thorough analysis of all the data collected and derived the various problems faced by the users. Finally the solutions, I began to work on solutions for the various issues and test if it solves the current issues.

Pain Points

Nowadays people are very much conscious about the hygiene and cleaning of their own kitchen. Cleaning Dishes are quite a chore of its own, and automated or done manually, it's a time / energy consuming activity.

1.  Problem of cleaning the small cutleries

2.  Problem of bottle and mug cleaning

3.  Problem of excess wastage of dish washing liquids or soap

4.  Hand Hygiene and Surrounding Hygiene

5.  Reduce the Time consumption


To design a product, that  aids in cleaning, drying and storing utensils with hassle free usage, for a nuclear family after every meal.

In a nuclear family The major problem they are facing is Lack of time. From the survey understood that most of the users are having some problem with the existing dish washers, like we need to spend a lot of time to set the entire dish washer, and which is helpful for the families those would like to clean the every utensils at one time mostly at night so that they will get all cleaned utensils for the next day. But in the case of Nuclear family the amount of utensils for a day is very small, and most of them are would like to clean their utensils after every meal, and in this present scenario cleaning of every utensils after every meal is necessary.

So this product is aims to create a small cleaning environment for every meal interval and which also help us to store the utensils as well with hassle free usage.
