Reading armchair - Pressing Plywood
This design is essentially two long rectangles of plywood individually folded and then arranged to overlap to produce a corner-like seat.
To achieve these shapes I had to produce and experiment with negative and positive molds.
Here you can see the rough massing models I made at first to test the scale. Then a CLT 2 part mold, which was not successful. Finally a more traditional two part mold and the resulting shapes, shown before final assembly.
Cloth Lamp - Prototype
This prototype is an investigation in table top reading lights.
The “shell” of the lamp is made from three sheets of wood that are mitered. When folded they form 3 sides of a box. When clipped together the cloth acts as both a medium through which the light filters and as a constraint and structural support for the timber sheets.
The whole lamp can be unfolded flat. The act of “dressing” the lamp gives the design a unique aesthetic and a fun interactive element
Reading lamp - Prototype
Project infoThis Reading Light is part of the MONO-SPACES project.
A MONO-SPACE is an environment designed to encourage a focused state of mind, through object and spatial design.
This lamp can be adjusted to change the ratio of ambient to task light.
Prague Clock - On going project
Project infoA quick design project. Inspired by rounded street clocks, which can be found around certain parts of Prague.
I decided to make one out of wood, or as close an approximation as I could. The dial and hands are made from Pockholz and the body is Red Oak.
The end result was intended to be a wrist watch. This is a steel prototype that has a matte satin finish on the top and polished on the bottom.
Still a work in progress...these things take time.
