This project reconsider the design of e-products in order to reduce the impact from electronic waste. Currently, 80% of disposed e-products ends up in landfills. The reason is the problem of de-manufacturing.
Designer redesigned the keyboard as an example of how to extend the life of an e-product. By simplifying the structure, users can repair products by themselves without any difficulty. Also, this can be separated into recyclable material after usage.
The design meets the challenge from 3 intervention points in the circular economy – fewer types of materials to manufacture, easy to repair, and it can be disassembled for recycling.
