BA (Hons) Furniture and Product Design

Grace Heslington

Designing has always been a passion and interest of mine. From an early age, I have always looked at products, mainly furniture, and been able to visualise how they have been manufactured. I can also imagine these items can be developed, to further enhance usability and aesthetics.

Shhh

As the world returns to life before the pandemic, a new way of working has emerged in the office environment: hybrid working. However, a privacy crisis has emerged in the office as a direct result of this meaning employees no longer have a permanent place to work and take calls. This has created an opportunity to create the Shhh. Shhh’s Design allows it to absorb sound from the environment creating a quieter space for not only users but those around them, to aid with tasks that require focus and concentration. Due to its size Shhh can be taken to and from the workplace to suit the needs of the hybrid working structure.

Collab

The design of Collab allows it to absorb sound from the environment creating a quieter space for not only users, but those around them, to aid with tasks that require focus and concentration. As well as this, it aims to encourage collaborative work within the office environment by having a functional reverse with either a whiteboard or corkboard.
