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.
To further build upon the concept of user control, Everest conceived of an in-oven camera system to monitor your meal without losing heat control.
Users are able to modify the oven temperature, timing, and mode from their device while within their home.
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.
