The ratio of Single Household is ever-increasing. About 3 years ago, I started living on my own in Seoul. One day, I needed to iron my shirts. I tried to buy one, but my room is too narrow to have everything I needed,
and I didn’t have enough money for everything.
So I sprinkled some water on my shirts and try to iron it with hot air blew from hair dryer. I came up with an idea of combining Steam Iron and Hair Dryer at the very moment since its structure might fit so well to each other.
My 23m² home in Seoul
They have several difficulties including small space, comparably less income and frequent move etc.
So they tend to buy what they really need and what they use on a daily basis.
They might have a hair dryer. but, not all of them have iron for their small house.
However, Iron Dryer which combined Steam Iron and Hair Dryer in one body can lighten economic and spatial burden of Single Household. Users can use this as a hair dryer daily. and when they need Steam Iron,
Put on Steam Iron Parts on top of Hair Dryer.
It is designed based on the affordance of existing ux of Dryer and Steam Iron.
Typically, Steam Iron is made to adjust backward and Hair Dryer have adjusting button in the frontal side.
I considered using habits not to confuse its users
