IDEATION
The idea for KODA started out when I went campingIt was a cold weekend in October, and although I had packed several layers, a winter jacket, gloves, mitts and a thermal sleeping bag I was freezing
"How can we create warmth for colder nights?"
AESTHETIC DESIGN
The initial design was a simple body pillow that was heated. I began looking at products that embodies coziness and warmth. The design should seem approachable and huggable just from looking at it.​​​​​​​
SKETCH MODEL
Building a sketch model helped to understand the form better helped finalize the overall shape, size and details before CAD
INTERACTIVE ELEMENTS
KODA's design incorporates human emotions and colours in the design. When KODA is low on battery, the eyes begin to shut symbolizing tiredness. This tells the user that KODA needs to be recharged.
DESCRIPTION
KODA is an electronic body warmer.
Designed with an outer coating of texin, KODA is soft to hug, and warms you up during cold days.
