This project centres on crafting a sleek biltong drying system, blending seamlessly into kitchen aesthetics and modern appliances. Inspired by the ease of air fryers, the system simplifies biltong making, featuring a comprehensive recipe and spice booklet alongside a meat template for effortless cutting. Meticulously designed with a keen eye on contemporary trends, it embodies the essence of 5D design methodology, ensuring functionality meets style. As a South African native, my passion for biltong drove this endeavour.
After moving to England, I was struck by the scarcity and high prices of biltong. Research underscored its superiority over beef jerky and pork scratchings, motivating me to make biltong more accessible. This system aims to level the playing field, offering a user-friendly solution for both biltong enthusiasts and newcomers, blending tradition with innovation on their culinary journey.

The commitment to flexible solutions is evident in the intentionally small-sized base, acknowledging spatial constraints in diverse environments. This design element caters perfectly to the practical needs of hybrid workers, providing adaptability without compromising style. Additionally, the chrome-finished dials and the lamp arm's expansive range of motion exemplify its adjustability, catering to the diverse preferences within the hybrid work setting. This adaptability addresses the dynamic nature of hybrid work, offering a personalized lighting experience for those seeking sophistication and functionality in their workspace.
