Lumea Comfort | Hair Removal Device
"IPL (Intense Pulsed light), works by applying gentle pulses of light to hair. The light is absorbed by melanin (pigment) in the hair and reaches the hair follicle. The light energy then stimulates the follicle to go into its resting phase. As a result, the hair falls out naturally and regrowth is inhibited, leaving you with silky-smooth skin.(1)''
In this project I worked with the internal Philips design team on the entry level offering in the 'Lumea' IPL range. This was a particularly complex project as design freedom was extremely limited and time was tight. However, the result was the most compact and affordable product in the range. This product was designed together with the Philips design and development teams.
My role in the project was as product design lead.
