MBAS 1 was designed to defy the nature of security products and minimize intimidation and fear for both technological and psychological aspects. The design appears friendly with clean lines that seamlessly blend from scanner to screen. Voice and visuals on the screen guide first time users step by step through the immigration process. The finger print scanning pad can be detached for easy maintenance or swift replacement. MBAS 1 is a unique product that aims to change the way we cross borders, allowing for multiple language interaction and a friendly non-discriminating user experience.

Interview with shakes bkk on CVision MBAS 1 Automated Immigration Terminal

What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
In order to create a better user experience our external Design language was defined by two contrasting values: sturdy but soft. We wanted users to feel at ease when being asked to use a security device without human operators.
What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
In contrast to MBAS2, MBAS 1 was designed as a more advanced looking terminal that could have a place at international border crossings such as airports. Its unibody Design keeps everything compact and utilitarian without looking too intimidating.
What are your future plans for this award winning design?
With MBAS2 currently in development stage, MBAS1 will soon be put for consideration due to its award winning status.
What made you design this particular type of work?
Chanwanich is one of Thailand silent leaders in technology which naturally inspired is to work with them.
Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?
I'd say that for this Design I was probably most inspired by Dieter Rahms whom I met at a Design Conference in Bangkok.
Who is the target customer for his design?
This is a business to government or private security product. Of course it will be used by all sorts of travelers which is why it is equipped with multiple language options.
What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?
It's milestone in Design when it come to this industry's Design choices.
What is the most unique aspect of your design?
The integration of all technical components in this unibody cut out Design that also features a removable fingerprint unit for easy maintenance or other attachments.
What is the role of technology in this particular design?
MBAS1 utilizes modern technology to transform the way we cross borders. In this case technology provides the means to make that change. However, it's also technology that often scares us from understanding it fully. This is why we took to designing a terminal that looked welcoming and friendly.
How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
We came across the A' Design award by accident while looking at an affiliated Designer.
What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
Working with Chanwanich for MBAS1 finally allowed us to create an outstanding Design for an industry that's never had any outstanding contribution to its field.
