As apartments are being built smaller and smaller each year and micro-living is becoming increasingly popular, kitchens are drastically downsizing. Many newer small kitchens may have tiny stoves or none at all. The FUSE hot plate is designed to maximize the space of small kitchens by combining with a cutting board and attaching to a holder on a kitchen wall. Both the cutting board and the hot plate join together perfectly to neatly store in the FUSE wall mount. Organize cords effortlessly with the built-in cord management system on the underside of the device.
Users are able to adjust the temperature of the hot plate through the intuitive heat meter. A simmer feature is included for precise low-temperature cooking. Keeping track of cooking is painless with the built-in timer.
The Pilchuck 45 is a modular pack system that gives hikers the freedom to interchange their packs to fit every adventure. The frame is the central component of the Pilchuck pack. The trampoline style frame provides optimal ventilation while the swiveling hip belt gives hikers unhindered movement. Since the frame is removable, adventurers can swap out the type of pack they use depending on their activity.
The Pilchuck 45 pack is just one pack within the Pilchuck family. It is a medium sized pack for short backpacking trips. Features include daisy loop chains, compression straps, and a roll-top closure. The roll top allows hikers the freedom to expand or compress the pack as they need.
Type 1 diabetics face challenges while packing for and during travel, particularly due to the cumbersome supplies they must carry to properly treat their condition. The T1 Traveler aims to improve the experience of traveling with type 1 diabetes supplies so that the users can fully experience new adventures. This holistic design consists of 4 main components: redesigned Medtronic Diabetes supply packaging, a lifestyle case to carry the supplies, a temperature controlled insulin chamber and a companion app for ease of packing. This project won a Gray Magazine Design Award in 2018.
