Integrated multifunctional units that enhance the each stage of break time in new generation office working areas
Break areas are the only places that people gather around, relax and have a conversation. Yet there is no example product that prompt people to gather around and interact during their preparation or usage. My aim with Totem is to create an ambiance within a product that attracts people and gathers them around itself. At the end, people would become more creative and less stressed around their working environment.
In the working environment, the best solution is to combine the needs and desires of the user together in the same environment. According to my research, recycle and food waste are the most challenging problems in the working environment that people either tried to create their own solution or do not recycle.
During my ideation process, I focused on the importance of the scenario and tried to define the components in different positions.
