BA Furniture & Product Design
I am a designer-maker who enjoys experimenting with materials because it allows me to explore new possibilities and push the boundaries of traditional design. By trying out different materials, I can create unique pieces that stand out and showcase my creativity and innovation.
Rocker B is a custom designed bent plywood rocking chair for those with Autism and ADHD. This innovative chair combines functionality, comfort, and sensory components to create a calming and soothing experience for individuals with special needs. The chair's design is based on the principles of ergonomic seating, ensuring optimal support for the body's natural posture. The unique use of bent plywood creates a smooth and contoured shape that hugs the body, providing security and comfort. The arms of the chair are adjustable, allowing for a hugging feeling to further enhance this sense of safety and comfort. In addition to its ergonomic design, the chair also incorporates sensory components through the use of removable fabric cushions. Soft and tactile materials are strategically placed throughout the chair, providing a variety of textures and sensations to engage and soothe the senses. The ability to remove and change out these fabrics ensures a customisable experience for each individual's unique sensory preferences. This chair is the perfect addition to any sensory room, therapy setting, or home environment, providing a safe and comfortable place for individuals with Autism and ADHD to relax and unwind.
Stool L is a refined and sophisticated furniture piece that was designed in line with Terrence Conran's design philosophy. The L shapes on the top makes a subtle hint towards the 50-year anniversary of one of his greatest achievements while the contemporary form brings in inspiration from his early career and his role models. A notable design element is the material choice of European Oak, with its distinctive grain pattern, every stool is unique. Inspired by one of Terrence Conran's early influences, Piero Fornasetti. His whimsical and decorative style made a nice addition to this stool. The Conran Blue handles on the sides create another subtle link to Terrence Conran and helps the stool sit within his product range comfortably while also displaying the stool's functionality.
