Goldilocks (Personal Locker) by Future Factory
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Security and Surveillance Products Design Award Winner
Inspiration
In a country that relies on service staff that walks in & out of homes several times a day, it is natural to feel anxious about your valuables. Highly valuable items are placed in the high security of vaults and safes, but some items such as wallets, jewelry, even some watches remain unprotected because of the frequency of their use. This inspired the design team to come up with a product that could offer convenience albeit at a lower level of security, for storing everyday valuables.
Creativity
Goldilocks is a compact vault for everyday valuables and represents a new category in the domain of home security. Reflecting user behavior and need, Goldilocks brings high convenience and easy access to a category governed by performance and security. While highly valuable objects are stored in safes, frequently used items (wallets, mobile phones etc) are prone to theft or misplacement. Goldilocks offers an optimal balance between convenience and security for such frequently used items.
Design Challenges
In a country that relies on service staff that walks in & out of homes several times a day, it is natural to feel anxious about your valuables. Yet, home safes are used in less than 1% of Indian homes. Goldilocks is a new category of electronic homes safes that attempts to change this. The design challenge was to find the correct balance between convenience and security, through a new product format.
Production Technology
Usually, safes are installed in Indian homes by cutting into walls and through floors, making serious modifications to the home environment. Goldilocks, with its unique motion sensor technology, does away with installation requirements altogether, using technology to present a more integrated and responsible solution. Goldilocks is designed for manufacturing with minimum tooling operations. The assembly features neat integration of plastic parts (for the interface panel and interiors) into the sheet metal enclosure.
