Description of the initiative

The initiative intends to challenge participants' ability to develop original concepts of design faucets for the EU market. Young designers are requested to create innovative and sustainable solutions by a predetermined brief. Initiative Scope TREEMME company produces designer taps with high technical and functional characteristics that integrate into modern and sophisticated bathroom environmentsThe company needs to improve its business in the European market by encouraging consumers to buy their faucets. Design taps are becoming increasingly popular on the market as they manage to combine the needs of style, elegance and functionality.TREEMME taps are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their very high aesthetic and functional characteristics.The objectives of the workshop are:
  1. Collecting data and information about the European market and defining the possible and innovative scenarios.
  2. Define design solutions to improve customer visual engagement related to the faucets.
  3. Improving the User experience of the SODA water dispenser.
  4. Improving the visualization and perception of the process during the provision (interface –UI)
Visual engagementHow can I sell the taps? How can I show his function in the store?How can I visually communicate with a potential buyer about selling the faucets? How can the Design express this function? How can I emotionally involve potential customers and let the trigger happen? UX physical interaction How can I improve the user experience? Interaction when I use a faucet, where can I improve it? How can I improve interaction on maintenance operations?  How is used (glasses, jars, etc.), when is used (morning, launch, etc..). Who is using it (different needs)?  UX interface- UIHow can I involve the user in the water supply process? Emotional involvements? How can I improve the usage of taps in customers? How can I push the user to let faucets become the most interesting consuming choice?
