Car booster & Device charger
Your car battery is down, or you don’t have an outlet to power your laptop? Kiwi is the first device dedicated to both car battery boost and tech device charging. With its minimalist yet robust 2 parts design, it can follow you everywhere and adapt itself to your need.
Induction + 230 V charge
Unplug the bottom cable coil, and carry the main battery device with you. Charge and hold your phone tight via the Kiwi induction non-slip top.
Lantern car booster
Your battery’s car is empty? Even alone in the dark, Kiwi is here to start your car. Plug the cable coil, and light it up for a powerful lantern effect.
A flashlight is a must-have in any car. Kiwi has a powerful light mode for critical moments.
A shape-guided design
The cylinder shape comes from the need of a cable reel. After days of exploration, I came back to it because of its simplicity & stability. I created the pliers design around iconic animals shapes to get new fresh design ideas
A 3D printed coil base
I used the Color Jet Printer technology to print those bottom parts without structure.
A 1:1 scale mock-up
The main Kiwi body was built out of a wood cylinder, combined with various 3D printed parts. I had to manage with a cylinder slightly bigger than my design, allowing me to try out new ergonomy assumptions.
A folded cardboard pack
I designed the pack to protect the product and simultaneously showcase all the different features it has to offer to the client.
Designers and users feedbacks were positive about this concept. The 230V outlet to charge computer sized device was a real game-changer for most of them.
