Building on the running consensus that life is too short for bulky, clunky products, the Docking Hairdryer by Jeongjin Ko features a clever, rotating handle that transforms the hairdryer’s shape from an L-shaped product to a linear one, allowing it to occupy a slimmer footprint, and to dock perfectly into its charging stand, becoming an overall cylindrical mass that’s beautiful to look at.
Jang Junyoung’s Hammer Dryer gives the hair dryer’s design some volume… not like the kind you’d associate with hair, but literal mass! The handle serves as nothing but a cylindrical gripping area (and the wire passes through it). The Hammer Dryer’s blower unit is given full focus with its heavy looking shape, and even the controls are shifted onto the hammer’s body, giving it functional focus too.
A hairdryer is not always easy to fit into a draw! Junbyung Choi identified this issue and set out to design a far more practical hairdryer, and the solution came in the form of Objet. With a design that’s inspired by crossroads extending from one stem to two branches, it is clear from first glance that it is far from a conventional hair dryer. Rather than being stored in the draw when it is not in use or cluttering up the room if it is left out, it neatly mounts onto the wall.
