BACKGROUND
At present, home router plays an important role in our daily life. We rarely touch it, but it has been putting there for network. As a home device, we always want it to be nice-looking, but that‘s not the case.
__________
RESEARCH & INSPIRATION
Survey conducted among 37 people who has router at home.
motivations
For most, appearance of the router affects man-machine relationships.
Good looks can make people feel comfortable.
Good appearance make people feel that the product is better, and lead to a better user experience better. 
So I decided to improve the shape of the router.
In order to prevent the blunt shape, I get inspiration through these elements, and try to add more humanistic feelings to make routers more aesthetically pleasing.

DESIGN PROCESS
This product shows the natural and smooth curves that extracted from the landscape. Its upper surface has a ceramic-like texture, matte anodised aluminium bottom reveals high-tech sense. It changed the ordinary router’s boring appearance, combining technology with nature, bringing new ideas to life, which would imporve user experience.
