BRIEF

Redesign the assigned household electrical artefact for 10 years time. You have: Smoothie Blender

A majority of components in the smoothie blender we studied were made of low quality parts, bound to break and burn-out within two years of consistent usage. Much of it was unrecycleable, ending up as landfill. The construction of it also made it difficult to disassemble and then impossible to reassemble making the machine unsalvageable after it would be once taken apart. In an ideal world, the overall build would be stronger, the components would be modular and sustainably built. Users would be able to replace the faulty pieces. But what if not every household needed a blender?
