Combining this knowledge with consumer insights and testing allows us to find sound solutions that elevate the experience of our products in a home. Any given sound can’t be assessed in isolation – sometimes great effort is made to reduce sound while other times it’s about using sound to improve the experience.
It’s critical that we ensure the sounds we design resonate in harmony with our other Design DNA Elements, like Motion. Accordingly, we can enhance every interaction – from sliding a fridge drawer to opening an oven or even receiving alerts on a smart device – by crafting moments that can be anything from completely soundless to resoundingly beautiful.
There’s a notion that when it comes to household appliances, sounds are just the noises products make when they’re in use. In this episode, Electrolux designer Daniel Mesa reveals why sound can be so much more than that – it’s an opportunity to connect with the user, guide their interactions with our products, and elevate their experience to new heights.
This was the final episode in our Electrolux Design DNA Elements series. Thank you so much for joining us on this journey! We hope you’ve found it illuminating to hear from our designers – and have perhaps been inspired to think about these Elements in new ways when it comes to your own kitchen projects and designs.
