Design Project I

  1. To find how people want to enjoy the experience of consuming ice cream for understanding in what quantities and in what ways it can be served alongside other desserts.
  2. To find other ice cream serving tools and machines apart from the scoop for studying the difference in how people consumed ice cream before the invention of the scoop and the inventions alongside the scoop.
  3. To find parallel products of the ice cream scoop and of the process of dispensing/ serving ice cream for getting inspiration from the similar features and characteristics of the products.
