BA Furniture & Product Design

I love to create questionable, abstract and fun designs, stimulating thought and discussion through design and taking risks with unknown territories. I enjoy applying CAD to show off products and want to pursue eccentric projects in the future to push my limits.

I strayed away from wooden furniture as that was the primary material seen in most furniture stores and felt like it was too rigid and dull. My inspiration comes from a desire to create something unconventional and niche out of a single sheet of metal. I knew I was going to use metal as my primary material because I wish to pursue new processes and materials in each project.

As a user sits, the seat inherently bounces, due to large bends and open space this welcomes an uncertain feeling. I enjoyed creating furniture without limitations. With this project, I wanted to question the forms and likes of the audience, constructing a design that is unconventional while leaving an impression. Creating strength in the form in which it would naturally not be found in.

Large bends were carefully rolled and all edges smoothed with identical radii to ensure a sleek, abstract, and futuristic design. It is finished with a shiny polish. Because the chair only utilises a single material, it can be easily recycled to be used again if needed.

ZIEDS - Adjustable Vase

I want to encourage the tradition of gifting flowers to loved ones as it provides a joyful experience for the person gifting and the receiver. No longer needing several different vases for different flowers or cutting them down to fit. The base is moulded out of a sustainable cement and top is 3D printed. The top can come in different shapes, colours and sizes to appeal to each individual The flange edge on the classic design allows for even larger bouquets to be presented and heavy base prevents the vase from toppling over.
