PRODUCT DESIGN | MECHANICAL ENGINEERING | BRANDING
For several years ODEER (China) was already selling Ventilation products which combined lighting in the Australian market. Studio Mango was approached to redesign and upgrade a few models to be introduced in the European market. After market research however it turned out that the whole system needed a re-design because the Australian duct system and installation methods are different from those used in Europe.
Two design directions were chosen, a budget and luxury collection to be the first products of the unnamed new brand. Combining lighting and ventilation for DIY solutions in Europe had never been done before so a new design language for the brand was developed. Besides the products the logo, packaging, website and branding was also developed by Studio Mango. The engineering of the ventilation ducts/airflow proved to be a major challenge to be able to extract the same amount of air as a regular fan but then with a light in the middle.
The result are 2 beautiful minimal ventilation/lighting collections which fit in any bathroom, the budget collection mainly made from plastics and the luxury collection using a beautiful ceramic cover which can also be hand painted to desire.
