Task: To design a line of electrical water heaters.

Haier is a major producer of home appliances and a wide range of electronics. Two models of water heaters were designed in our studio for this company. One has a mechanical and the other an electronic control panel, for your inner geek and your inner artist respectively.

These water heaters come in three capacities: 50 L (13.2 gal), 80 L (21.1 gal), and 100 L (26.4 gal).

The electronic control panel has digital indicators of the current and set temperatures so that you can fine-tune it with confident precision, for the ultimate splish-splash experience

The heater model with the mechanical panel has a simpler design.

The mechanical panel interface is extremely easy to use. This dial is the best for those thinking in “warmish” and “piping hot” terms instead of “ninety-eight-point-seven-fahrenheit”
