Shredder + Printer + Scanner = Shrinter
An Earlier Concept.
Blue Foam 1:1 Scale Mock Up
The ‘Shrinter’ assignment was an exercise to combine three products into One compact Multi Function Machine that had an A4 Scanner, an A4 printer and a shredder component. The Focus was predominantly on the Physical Interface, so aesthetics was not the priority. The Final ‘Shrinter’, the Phat Cat MF01, featured unique designs such as the externally positioned Ink cartridge mounts, no longer does the user have to open up the printer to replace ink. A Lever operated shredder, simple scanning and copying functionality, and importantly the deletion of a navigation screen, because some times screens just ruin things.
