Project outline

RESEARCH REPORT

comprehensive understanding of the design problem was gathered through generating a research report

Research methods including...

  • Generating realistic personas / scenarios
  •  Customer needs / metrics
  • Understanding of fluid dynamics
  • Product Specifications

PROJECT

The purpose of the project, specified by Nectre, was to create a Panoramic Solid Fuel Slow Combustion Heater that included a rising door rather an a traditional ‘barrel hinge’ door. This panoramic display and rising door mechanism was the core design problem that required persistent consideration and subsequently resulted in several design challenges.

CONTEXT

The Panoramic Solid Fuel Slow Combustion Heater has a modern and minimal styling approach with the intent of widening the Nectre product range from their previous traditional and contemporary styling approach.

CLIENT

The Panoramic Solid Fuel Slow Combustion Heater was designed for Nectre which are part of Pecan Engineering Pty Ltd, an Australian company who design and manufacture combustion heaters.
