The Bean, a 4G router for Huawei
The Bean concept stands for approachable product experience. The gentle and reduced overall shape defines a human design style which makes a technical device appear friendly. The metaphor bean emphasizes an inspiring appearance trough a simple volume which seems to cover the precious core.
The Bean integrates well into the living environment by a friendly, balanced and uncomplicated design and at the same time, it appears trustful through solid shapes and a slightly angled overall shape which ensures stability.
The ventilation detail shows a contrast to the soft overall shape by precision and material contrast and highlights the subtle embossed buttons. The interface is displayed as subtle shine through Icons.
