Smoother / Product


This is a portable iron, the target audience is young people, such as college students, young office workers and so on. It is small, light, and low-power. It is also rechargeable, which means it is portable and easy to use. The designer noticed the safety issue, so he used a combination of materials, that is, the splicing of metal, plastic and cloth, which can reduce burns. The designer also thought of a new way of interaction. Users can not only hold the handle of the iron in their hands, but also spread their hands flat, just like flattening the clothes with their hands when ironing.
