DESCRIPTION

Altri is a multi-functional smart fold and app system that improves user productivity through timing and external cues, while minimizing distractions by separating the user from outer distractions. Altri transforms into its space, acting as a work pad or partition, using visual cues to notify the user when they are being distracted from their work or when they need to take a break.

Altri is a multi-functional workspace tool, intended to help users stay productive by physically splitting up leisure and work spaces within various environments. Altri helps create an efficient workflow with its supplementary app that personalizes to each user's work flow needs and goals. By creating an efficient workflow and a set space to work, users are able to work more productively in shorter increments, creating much needed free time and separation from work.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic 42% of the US labor force is now working remotely causing workspace and flow to drastically change.

Working from home has become the new normal, causing remote workers to struggle with the mental separation of work and play, due to the inability to physically split small spaces within the home..

SOLUTION


Working in the modern world can be difficult, we are here to helps!

Altri was made with the modern employee in mind- being versatile enough to fit any working space. The Altri fold is portable and convenient; so you can work anywhere anytime. Altri can be used horizontally as a desktop- with magnets and a comfortable work surface, the fold is suited for adaptability in workspace size and location. Finally, Altri can function as a partition between you and the distractions of open workspaces

PRIVACY

The Altri fold provides a physical barrier between the user and outside environmental stimuli, creating a sense of privacy and personal space. This helps everyday workers create a separation physically and mentally from their living space all while lower outside distractions.

COMFORT

Altri provides freedom for the user to work in a larger, more spacious, and possibly public area without distraction. Workers value large spacious areas while working, but oftentimes do not have private access to such space.

FOCUS

Promotes focus through the use of external cues that let the users know when they have reached their goal and it is time for a break. This prevents burnout and overworking that affects not only the users work but also mental health.

MOBILITY

Foldable for easy portability and set up in any environment. The Altri fold is equipped with magnetic inner boards to hold paper and other work materials to provide even more ease during transportation.

ALTRI ECOSYSTEM

Designed for the modern working!

The Altri system includes not only the smart divider but also a companion app. The Altri app gives users a visualization of their productivity, and control over environmental settings of the fold

ALTRI FOLD

If we didn't bring work home before, why should we have to now?

Altri is a smart divider pad that improves user productivity through timing and external cues, while minimizing distractions by separating the user from outer distractions. Multiple feature sets become available to the user depending on the orientation the pad is used in.

ALTRI APP

Designed for the modern worker.

The Altri system includes not only the smart divider but also a companion app. The Altri app gives users a visualization of their productivity, and control over environmental settings of the fold.

PRODUCTIVITY COMPARISON

Track your productivity and reach your goals!

The Altri ecosystem allows the user to track, monitor and reflect on their daily, weekly, monthly and yearly productivity. This allows users to visually see their productivity level and evaluate distractions and set alerts to optimize their work days.

CUSTOM ALERTS

Alerts specific to you and your work flow.

Adjust the timing, light color, and light temperature to create the perfect alert for you. Working in the modern world, there can be so many distractions. Altri allows the user to set up their ideal reminder, whether it be an alert for a break or an alert to signal you've been distracted for too long.

VISUAL   IDENTITY

ALTRI INTERFACE

The idea for Altri's interface was to design something that aligned with our modern interactive world. By creating the floating 3-Dimensional visual comparison circles, the viewer can have a sense of interaction with their productivity allowing them to connect to something that is more than just a percentage. I wanted to create something that signified our non-stagnate continuous moving workdays, this can be seen in the responsive percentages as they continuously move on the home screen.
