Target groups

1: Families with kids and 2: Young people driven by design & innovation

Observation

According to Thorsten Richter who is the interior designer of I.D. Buzz; “People used to take personal belongings into the car to make it theirs.” Custom crafts that Beetle and Bully users have been doing since many years and levitating statues like meditating gnome are great examples for that statement.

Conclusion

I wanted to take it to the next level by using the levitating system on the dash top area for functional objects such as Floavase and letting users to have their own designs in their Buzz.

Solution

Floavase is a floating and rotating vase with a flower inspired air freshener inside. It spreads the aroma by rotating in the air. Modular base part lets people attach their own 3D printed designs and personalize the space. Young people driven by design & innovation can design functional objects. Families with kids can print their 3D scanned family statue or choose from other objects designed by other people. Design options are limitless and have a potential to create a community.

Need addressed by this product

Floavase is designed with design language and color scheme of I.D. Buzz. Vase part contains the iconic I.D. Buzz pattern as holes to form a strong and lightweight structure which can be produced with a 3D Printer. Hole pattern also provides a transparent look to see the flower inspired air freshener

Further elaboration of the product

Floavase uses the magnetic system of dashboard like original gnome statue. Instead of the ventilation air flow, air freshener spreads the aroma by rotating in the air. People can attach their favorite aroma by changing the paper air freshener. Real flowers can be used to have more natural feeling.
