British Gas Hive Thermostat

a series of thermostats with consistent design language and interactions

We worked with the Hive team at British Gas to design a thermostat that solves the problems of new technologies often being too complex and cumbersome in real life: installation challenges, simplicity of use, discretion in the residential environment, cultural adaptations and fit. Designing the form factor and digital experience simultaneously, we were able to create a product that is familiar, while at the same time delivering a totally new experience.
