Organizing Committee of CMF DESIGN AWARD : First of all, congratulations to China Mobile IoT Company Limited, Shenzhen Branch-China Mobile Xiaoyan Smart Door Lock NB Version for winning the 2020 CMF DESIGN AWARD. Best Finishing Award, and share the story behind the works with us and introduce the winning product.


China Mobile IoTBefore designing smart door lock, we first visited many smart door lock manufacturers such as Zhongshan, Foshan, Wenzhou, etc., and had in-depth exchanges with personnel from relevant departments such as marketing, R&D, production, and quality, and basically understood the entire smart door lock industry chain. Analyze and organize, and combine with the product manager for users and company business, and determine the general design direction. In the specific design process, we must not only ensure the innovation and uniqueness of the plan, but also control the cost within a reasonable range. Through a series of comparative analysis and thinking, we have determined a more detailed design plan.



Video commentary of China Mobile Xiaoyan Smart Door Lock NB Version:




The metal middle frame of the smart door lock is one of the core points of the design. The conventional molding method generally adopts alloy die-casting, and the surface adopts spraying or electrophoresis treatment. The advantage of this method is that the cost is low but the appearance effect is general, and the metal texture is difficult to express. The innovative breakthrough of Xiaoyan smart door lock NB version adopts the method of combining stretched profiles and machining, which not only guarantees the metal luster after oxidation but also avoids the problem of high cost of full CNC; one mold is dual-purpose, and the same set of molds are stretched blanks. The stretched blanks of the same mold can be subsequently processed into the front and rear middle frames of the door lock, which greatly saves the cost of the mold.



Xiaoyan Smart Door Lock has been launched in August 2020




Organizing Committee of CMF DESIGN AWARDCan you tell us about your company's CMF department? For example: Approximately when was it established? Group background? Attention? Main work etc.


China Mobile IoTThe CMF department was established at the beginning of 2019. Two industrial designers undertake the CMF design work. They are responsible for the CMF follow-up after the design plan is transformed into a product, collect and introduce new materials and processes, conduct feasibility studies, and accumulate CMF resources. Committed to creating products with excellent design and exquisite craftsmanship. The goals within the department are the same to build a professional design team. Team members collaborate with the company and cooperate with external suppliers. After a year of collection and accumulation, a CMF resource area has been established, which has both the functions of material selection and display.

Evaluation of previous winners:

 




The CMF Design Award was introduced and launched for the first time to the audience and gives a special honour to the sensorial and aesthetic design of products.


CMF is until now an underrated and sometimes marginally treated component of good design. But facing the overcrowded and fast changing market full of hundreds of brands and products, the visual and haptic design is more important than before.
