Designing an inclusive universal TV remote
The Robin remote was launched in the U.S. in 2020.
With the industry still not paying enough attention to designing for the needs of the elderly, existing products on the market are often clunky or confusing. Seeking to change this, the design of the Robin Remote is free from fuss and has a thoughtful user experience.
Taking cues from the Robin clock design, the remote is free from superfluous styling. The design details that are there have been carefully considered and the use of textile for the branding tag and the interchangeable wrist or neck cord bring a softness and lifestyle feel to the design. The use of colour is minimally used to call out the key buttons; up, down, volume and power.
