【2019 CMF DESIGN AWARD】

Exclusive interview of winning works:Anker sound core liberty 2 pro

Organizing Committee of CMF DESIGN AWARD : First of all, congratulations to Anker sound core liberty 2 pro for winning the CMF DESIGN AWARD , and share the story behind the works with us and introduce the winning products.


Anker:Sound core Liberty 2 pro, Time to market:2019.10

CMF design concept: design concept restores nature and balances feelings

        

01:At the product definition stage, Liberty 2 pro hopes to try to make the product to be designed with natural attributes. Based on this starting point, CMF has collected a lot of inspiration and brainstorming, and finally decided to soften the fluff powder and soft PU to the touch and the combination of oval shape creates a product with visual and tactile dual texture.


02:The biggest CMF challenge on the surface is in two aspects. First: grasp the amount of fluff in the paint. If there is no fluff powder, the effect of the stone will not come out. If there is more, the surface color will be darker and no gloss. The size of the diameter is also critical. Controlling it within a certain order of magnitude not only ensures that mass production will not be blocked by spray guns, but also fully shows the effect of fluffy spots. This is one of the key points. Second: what system of paint is used, it is also the key point. The soft texture of the rubber paint can express the requirements of product touch, but the anti-staining test of white rubber paint is not feasible. Therefore, how to make the non-rubber paint PU more soft to the touch is this product focusing of the breakthrough in technology. Therefore, in the face of various complex factors, the team finally made the product's CMF balanced and optimal after repeated attempts and experiences.
