CIBO

Capstone (2020)

CIBO is an all inclusive portable prep and cleanup station designed to increase the linear workflow in the kitchen. CIBO acts as a prep station, a drying rack, and also has a slim profile that allows it to be stored away in or out of the kitchen.

The Design process

The design process started with sketching kitchen-kits for all sorts of different scenarios. Every kitchen was considered such as dorm kitchens, outdoor kitchens, and even RV kitchens.

After settling on an idea involving flat-packing, blue foam was used to construct mockups. 

The following photos show the first iteration of CIBO in blue foam roughly to scale. After the foam model, I moved to modeling CIBO in  CAD. 

Version 1

CIBO would pass through four rounds of CAD before the final version

Version 2

Version 3

Version 3 would be the first to integrate the drying rack feature the would eventually be seen in the final design of CIBO

Version 4 would refine the drying feature and add temporary silicone feet on the base

Version 4

The fourth version only needed minor refinements, and a new splash of color before the final design was complete.

Final Design

The design process shown here is only a fraction of what went into designing CIBO. If you would like to see the entire design process more in-depth, you can click the button and download the entire process book. It is intended to be viewed as a two page spread.
