This project respects the changing lifestyles and spaces of young professionals to provide an efficient solution to the physical and social issues identified to provide more harmony in the home. Because of the increase in appliances and tools needed to live this exacerbates the lack of space and certain activities for a young single professional like washing up or cleaning is not actively embraced. This tray facilitates a more positive attitude towards this observation. Using smart materials, this multiple shape memory alloy tray allows for the temperature to dictate the form allowing for flexibility in form to provide more function.
