Driven by the water safety concerns of many Chinese households appliance brand Angel strives to be leader of clean water. Angel’s water filters, dispensers and water softeners had to be taken to the next level, driven by the brand’s newly developed product design language (see related projects). We teamed up with Angel to initially tackle their water dispenser line. Desk- and wall-type dispensers are must-have appliances in most Chinese households providing hot or cool drinking water to make tea, soups or prepare infant formula. Besides of enhancing product installation, maintenance, ease of use and ensuring a spatially efficient footprint, it was integral to the project’s success to build a visibly better product, also getting the design in tune with Angel’s scientific brand look.
