Bandha is a service made of an app and a device: Bandha and Stone. The app works only connected with Stone, that instead can be used even without being connected to Bandha.

🎯 Challenge / We are constantly fighting distractions and procrastination when we’re trying to get the work done on the computer. How can you design an environment that helps people focus on their work to be done?

Note / This was a really quick exercise, found on uxchallenge.co. It’s great to challenge yourself and it was really useful to take advantage of free time during the quarantine due to Covid-19. That said, I’m conscious that the level of detail is not perfect.

There aren’t many reasons behind it, just the fact that my experience in Portugal was great, but short… so what better way to make it continue?

My internship at tog.design started the 6th of January and ended after exactly 2 months. I’m a Service Design student at the University of Bologna (Italy) and I applied for the Erasmus+ for Traineeship program in April 2019, when I started contacting every service design office in Lisbon and Berlin. …
