iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

Traditional hairdryers have just the single function of blowing air, which results in a low utilization rate. The Multi-purpose Hairdryer combines blowing and drying functions and uses the air blown from the dryer to dry hand towel. When the user wishes to use the device as a hairdryer, s/he only needs to remove the dryer unit from the base. After use, return the dryer to the base. The combination of dryer unit and base means this device is more flexible in use – it can even be used as a hand dryer.

The solution turns the conventional hairdryer into a multi-functional device for a variety of scenarios. it is a simple smart way to utilize the pure blower function.
