Discipline: Product

When working with a sanding machine, it's very important to make the surface even and flat. However, we often see uneven surfaces resulting from faulty application of force. It takes lots of time and labor to recover this mistake. 'Level Sander' visually shows the force a user applies in 9 stages. Visual information is one of the most effective tools of recognition. If users can recognize the level of force they apply by means of visual information, mistakes can be prevented and minimized. This characteristic provides excellent work results, even for users who are not familiar with using sanding machines.

The product communicates with the user about a critical aspect of the employed task in a very efficient and clear way. The form of the product and its display configured beautifully.
