Förbättring av väggfäste för flatscreens
The project was carried out in cooperation with the department of product development IOS at IKEA. The work included improvements of a new existing product that Ikea soon will release on the market, Observatör, a wall bracket for flat screens. The product is supposed to fulfil the needs within this market for IKEA. However, since Ikea was not satisfied with it, our work was to carry out the improvements that were specified in the beginning of the project. Another task in the project was to develop a side-product that is supposed to be used together with Obeservatör for storage of DVD/decoders.The project included labour as problem definition to final technical drawings and a prototype. In the project start information was gathered to understand the current market and its competition. The next step was to start solving the problem in a creative way through brainstorming and concept drawings. When the final concepts were chosen they were developed into final solutions with technical drawings.The final result meets the main requirements that were stated in the beginning of the project. The wall bracket is now in two main parts that will make the assembly on the wall easier, the joints between the parts and the shafts works smother at the same time as the demands for tilt, rotation etc. works successfully. The final result is two user friendly products, Observatör and storage for DVD/decoders that have the same interface so the costumer easy can see that they are supposed to be used together.
