Dario Aguet – R-D Earbuds
Diploma project by Dario Aguet
My graduation project is a set of earbuds that can be taken apart, designed to provide easy access to all the internal components so that they may be replaced and disassembled in order to be recycled. There are hundreds of wireless earbuds in the world, of all shapes and sizes, which cannot be repaired and at the end of their lives are seldom recycled. The design of these earbuds relates to the concept of disassemblability so that consumers can change parts if they break and do not have to buy a new product. At the end of the product’s life, every material can be easily disassembled and recycled. These considerations, which are the result of decisions made at the product design stage, justify my approach to design.
