Bosch Vario is a cooking device developed in collaboration with Bosch GMBH. Together with representatives of the company we analysed the brand, values and future market potential of the brand to develop a future vision of its style and a product.
It is the result of a 10 week long strategic design design project at Umeå Institute of Design, spring 2016. Created for the Advance Product Design program.
My personal goal in this project was to further develop planning and arranging workshops, design research, branding, model making, and animation skills.
VARIO is the first kitchen tool you will need in your kitchen. Through the use of a base plate with integrated induction ring (for heat transfer) and a magnetic ring (for rotating motion) you combine the most important functions in a kitchen device. The possibility to use a variance of interchangeable tops extends the multi-functionality.
By placing the induction plate, the user can use their normal pots and pans like on a regular stove. By using the grill plate, only the ribs heat up and you get a high-quality grill plate. By placing the stock pot, you can make soup. Or place a mixing element, to use it as a sous-vide, or a steam basket on top to reuse the steam. The options are countless
