Droplet is an electric mulching lawnmower, addressing the issues of increasingly smaller lawn and storage spaces in Australian homes, and the negative user issues associated with gardening hardware. The droplet incorporates a unique raising and lowering mechanism alongside an unconventional wheel design, resulting in a new interpretation of a typically dull machine. The surface detail flow makes a feature of material connections and visually maps the functionally of venting. The lawnmower is electric, increasing user independence by eliminating the need for technical knowledge and regular maintenance. The mulching technology removes the task of handling grass clippings, and promotes lawn health.
