The challenge of creating a connected kitchen.

To create an experience that people enjoy to use, we focused on designing appliance controls that were faster and easier to use than the ones on the physical devices. By building the connected experience around control, we could more easily introduce users to other features like recipe assistance and monitoring.

We worked quickly to build a series of prototypes that allowed users to simulate the experience of turning an oven on and off, setting temperatures, or selecting the recipe they intended to cook.

Users are able to monitor their culinary masterpiece in real-time remotely, without losing vital heat.

Unlocking everyone's inner chef.

Working from an extensive database of recipes, the oven can precisely monitor doneness and help produce the perfect cooking results. We designed an easy-to-use recipe catalog that makes selection, shopping, and preparation a stress free activity.

Sensors monitor the appliance health, energy usage, operating efficiency, and predict when maintenance is needed.

A premium experience for the most discerning consumers.

Our goal was to create a perfect pairing between the luxury feel of the connected software and the appliances themselves. We drew design inspiration from the product range itself, creating a seamless connection between the digital and physical world by integrating animated 3D appliances in the app.
