Modular design can help vastly reduce negative environmental impact, e.g. by simplifying remanufacturing processes already at a design stage through modular structures and standard components. The main function of the Iziconn Modular System - modularity - not only helps to solve the problem of unsustainable consumerism, but also facilitates production and adaptation to critical changes in the electronic device market.
Technologically similar analogues of the Iziconn Modular System emphasize modularity only as a possibility to use the same connector, i.e. connect specific devices without using the full potential of modularity in the design of the product. However, the modularity actually allows the user not only to link the battery module with another module/cell, but also to combine the modules with each other. The Iziconn Modular System allows you to have many different functions in one device, changing and adapting them according to one’s needs.
The designer graduated from the National M. K. Čiurlionis School of Art (product and graphic design), and later continued design studies at the Vilnius Academy of Arts. After finishing his studies, Ignas participated in the Makeademy project organized by VGTU, where his teams took the first and second places. Also, together with AIAI architects, he presented his bachelor’s thesis remake at the Future Clinic competition organized by Structum and took 3rd place. I. Kuncevičius is one of the co-founders of OCCURRE, which creates innovative design solutions and startups.
