Having maximum function is imperative to the need of users as freedom access to tools and information leads to spontaneous and continual action which spurs creativity and productivity
What is Maximum Function
"Maximum Function" is a philosophy designed to implement unique approaches and production focused principles to making living and working environments better. By first identifying what issues people experience in their day to day, we orchestrate the same scenario step by step to determine intuitive solutions that deal with the problem in a smart and efficient way.
User research is tried and tested. Therefore, we ensure our products abide to sustainable, ergonomic and functional standards that are suitable for long term use and production. By identifying and tackling problems first hand, we can truly optimize the way people work, behave and thrive in all environments.
The root idea is what we call Maximum Function
Ways We Problem Solve
1. By first Identifying The Problem
Problems collected through user research and observation reveals some of the most common pains surrounding working and living spaces. Dysfunctional environments is on one of the main causes of behavioral decay which surmounts to productivity loss, emotional unrest, and social disconnect.
Notable problems include:
Tight Spaces - problem arises where narrow spaces like hallways and entries makes navigation difficult
Visual Clutter and Distractions - problem arises where poor accessibility and organization deter focus and concentration
Material Waste - problem arises where poorly made products contributes to objects with low resale value
Heat and Glare - problem arises caused by sunlight beaming through an area, particularly computer screens and work desks affecting productive hours during the day
Poor Quality and Innovation - problem arises from overseas manufacturing that cares little about longevity of products and the health of our planet
Poor Construction Methods - problem arises where process of assembling furniture is frustrating, confusing and unfriendly
Inflexibility - problem arises where poor layout and organization inevitably deprives ability to adapt and grow within an environment
2. Then prioritize The needs
By revealing problems to kick-start a framework of questions that turn qualitative problems into solution driven guidelines, we can then actively help clients better understand what real problems need to be solved and fully engage on the task at hand.
Guidelines may include:
Mobility: What can we do to make your environment more productive?
Storage/Layout: What can we do to maximize the appearance of your floor space?
Form & Aesthetics: What kind of appearance will make your project/product stand out?
Accessibility: What can we do to make your working or living space more accessible?
Price: What can we do to make your product more cost productive?
