The conceptual 'HIFIVE' hair dryer comes as a piece of equipment for the modern consumer that will provide them with a way to maintain an optimal user experience without having to deal with fumbling. Boasting a folding design that makes it simple to store anywhere, the hair dryer features a flattop design that allows users to place it down without having to worry about it tipping over. This comes as a much more functional aesthetic in comparison to the existing cylindrical options that presently dominant the market.
The 'HIFIVE' hair dryer is the design work of Joongho Choi and Hyunmook Lim, and identifies the need for compact, collapsible appliances as consumers shift to smaller living spaces and lifestyles that are more travel-focused.
