The Brief

The challenge was to design the machine’s facade without changing any technical parts initially used.
I decided to work on the visibility. These machines are placed at the back of freeway shops, one needs to directly know where to have a coffee break.

The Stakes

Technical parts were not appealing, especially the cup receptacle. As I couldn’t hide it, I decided to include it within a exaggeratedly visible shape to catch the eye and bring less attention on this part. I choose to design a facade as smooth and the interface as easy to use and minimalist as possible.

The Result

Selecta team choose my project for its simplicity and because it made they products more visible.
