Hello! / Wireless Charger

Hello!

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2018

Hello! is a new wireless charger which reinterpreted a new point that the existing wireless charger could not intuitively identify the state of charge. The existing wireless charger was difficult to visually check the state of charge when charging the mobile phone. Another problem is that many bacteria are breeding in mobile phones. So, I thought about a way to continuously charge and sterilize at the same time. I got a hint from the metaphor where the bread bounces back at the toaster. Traditionally we used a toaster to write bread. I thought that pushing the lever of the toaster down will charge the mobile phone with the baking process.

IF is a good competition that inspires designers. I am pleased to be honored about the design that we planned was able to earn high appraisal at international design competition.
