As a designer, I welcome the challenge that comes with each project. I enjoy the process of design and seeing an idea down on paper become a reality is what motivates me, to push my ability in every aspect of design. I particularly enjoy working with wood, but also combining and experimenting with new materials, my time at Nottingham Trent University has allowed me to do this and broaden my creativity. My passion to produce aesthetically pleasing pieces comes from an interest in combining art with design, whether it is subtle detailing or more creative features, whilst achieving the products purpose.

This project focused on pushing the boundaries of the traditional uses of Corian. Pentorian is a decorative table lamp that contrasts Corian and Black American Walnut, resulting in a modern aesthetic. The unique water jet cut and thermoformed shade enables shadows to be cast, creating an ambient light. The design is versatile and can be made into a pendant light and floor standing lamp.

This contemporary desk design explores the idea of incorporating texture to a conventional flat surface. It provides a decorative aspect while having the potential to be functional. Constructed from Walnut and Ash with subtle Corian detailing, the Ripple desk includes a drawer and a removable Corian writing slab.
