Mock-up Testing

 

I bring these three mockups to IKEA to test its scale and to see how would it be used in the everyday kitchen environment. I found out that users can hang mock up 1 over anywhere, and it really fit into the kitchen environment. And it is very portable. So I decided to keep develop concept 1.
