Balance / Product Design


What if a product creates a personal meaningful moment and emotional connections every time you use it? Balance, a weight scale, designed in the shape of a cobblestone with a curved surface at the bottom. When stepping on it, with the touching and sensing from the organic shape and designed radius, the users will come back to the moment when they stumbling across the river in the childhood. They opened their arms to keep the balance, as streams slowly flowed along with fresh air and endless happiness. The scale creates a relief moment in every time of using which makes the users' bodies and soul feel fresh and healthy.
