Industrial design is the use of a combination of applied art and applied science to improve the aesthetics, ergonomics, and usability of a product, but it may also be used to improve the product's marketability and production. The role of an industrial designer is to create and execute design solutions for problems of form, usability, physical ergonomics, marketing, brand development, and sales.
Below are some of my projects at IDC IIT Mumbai.
IDC Project - Car Styling
My final year thesis at IIT Bombay was a car styling project.
This is a 5 seater mini car for an Indian family. The Elders in a typical family want a car which is executive looking, decent, well outlined, cheap, which can accommodate whole family, yes a family car. But the youngsters want a sporty looking, colourful, advanced, aerodynamic, speed car. So to cater the aspiration of elders and younger in a Indian family, Sameer tried to get a sporty look in a family car. The styling goes on the theory of ‘DUAL SEMANTICS’. The front of the car is pyramidal, sharp, speedy, and hence sporty. The rear of the car is smooth, slow, spherical, like a sphere. It has panoramic rear window
IDC Project - Fires Rescue System
This was my final year product design project. I designed a compact and affordable fire rescue system for individual to escape their apartments in the event of fire in crowded cities like Mumbai. The current problem is that the snorkel ladder truck cannot reach close to Mumbai’s crowded high rise buildings. This system will help people to help themselves in the event of fire and escape their apartments.
