Christian Ost

Industrial Design

As a designer with an affinity for technology, Christian Ost often looks at how people interact with high-tech objects through both physical and digital media. As an avid computer enthusiast, Christian enjoys building his own systems and making modifications to improve both looks and performance. He is always excited to see what new and innovative features companies are currently incorporating into their designs to both solve problems and enhance functionality.

The goal of Christian’s brewing system project was to create something that would get people’s attention and ignite their curiosity. The project underwent several conceptual stages with various versions appearing and disappearing. All of them, however, helped to influence the final design—a design that offers easy access to components, allows for uninhibited cooling and which uses a “picture frame” to mount the technology that enthusiasts love.
