    Kiwi & Pom were approached to develop the physical form and design language for a smart home device, to work with client Aerial’s smart technology within a domestic environment. The Aerial Cube is used to create a ‘smart home’ by connecting with existing Wi-Fi, allowing the user to check over and control their home from any location.

    As the device was to be used within the home, Kiwi & Pom proposed that the design should be discreet and elegant in form, providing a comfortable addition to the home. Initial design concepts were developed experimenting with form, materiality and texture.

    The chosen concept delivered a face plate and split outlet design, obscuring the two outlets from front view. The design used materials such as wood to soften the look and give a more domestic feel to the product.

    The face plate detail gives the device a stylised element in situ, while also allowing the user to choose a finish to suit their environment.

    The smart device physical design and language was also used to inform Aerial’s visual identity and branding, which was developed by design consultant Detraform alongside the project.

Aerial Cube Smart Device

Kiwi & Pom were approached to design a smart home device for Montreal-based client, Aerial. The brief was to design a physical form and design language to work with Aerial’s smart technology in a domestic environment.

The Aerial Cube connects with the user’s Wi-Fi in order to create a ‘smart home’, allowing the user to easily monitor, control and secure their home from any location.

As the device was for use within the home, Kiwi & Pom proposed that the design should be discreet and elegant in form, providing a comfortable addition to a home setting. Initial design concepts were developed experimenting with form, materiality and texture. The chosen concept delivered a face plate and split outlet design, allowing two power outlets to be accessed from either side of the device, while also obscured from front view. 

The face plate detail gives the device a stylised element while in use. This variation also allows the user to choose a finish to suit their environment – Kiwi & Pom used materials such as wood to soften the look and give a domestic feel to the product. The Aerial Cube physical design is now being used as part of Aerial’s visual identity and branding, which was developed alongside the project by design consultant Detraform.
