BA Furniture & Product Design

Ben Robson

CAD is my enthusiasm in design. Through CAD, I am able to visualise others and my designs, sketch ideas and work out the fundamentals to innovative design concepts. I am proud to have completed two projects with a major focus on sustainable innovation, and will continue to do so through CAD development and design.

Ben's Biocrete

Biocrete is an innovative material that uses biochar from horticulture and waste by-products to create a carbon dioxide-absorbing material for 30 years, offsetting the production of and offsetting its weight in carbon dioxide. Greatly reducing the carbon footprint of construction. Biocrete production runs on a circular economy where recycling and reuse can re-enter the circular principle and beyond. There are huge amounts of untapped areas that Biocrete can enter beyond just construction.

The Maiden Veil Lamp

The Magis project was a fantastic inspiration to focus the design. The Maiden Veil's focus on tactile and playful design fits not only the brief and understanding of the brand, but also helps the neurodivergent customer, with a stimulating projected light to calm or to relax any user. Choosing generative design, was a difficult task to understand, learn and successfully implement, but the process was a learning curve of up-and-coming innovations in CAD design. 3D printing helped to integrate the process and method, whereby the lamp can be easily manufactured in mass production, and sustainability is fundamentally at the forefront of the design and process.
The lack of fitting and fixings of the design, enable this lamp to be repaired, reused or recycled repeatedly, even with a shelf-life of over 25 years. Exploring the use of 3D printing in the design process is forging a new wave of more sustainable design and production, with inclusive and innovative design.
