solo / Product Design


“Solo”is the electric rice cooker intended for one-person households.
Nowadays, the number of one-person households is increasing in South Korea.
Accordingly, new cultural trends, products and services have been developed.
All of these, however, stressed their customization for the features of one-person households, which are small size of them, and therefore proper scale for their needs.
This results in the frustration of them. I wanted them to have better lifestyle, which is healthier than current status.
