beauty in the bathroom

Adam Wolf 路 513 600 2987

Inspiration can come from anywhere. How can bathroom fixtures become visual sculptures, based off the works of architects and artists?

The designs would be based off of the large, geometric scultpures of the artist Enrique Carbajal.

Perfect Rounded Triangle



Inspired by the design of the 2012 Olympic Torch, the main theme would be a perfect rounded triangle- equal sides with equal radii.

Rapid Prototyping To further develop the form, I made many different iterations of the products, which helped to esatablish ergonomics as well as aesthetics.

clean up

Adam Wolf · 513 600 2987

Working hard can make a mess. How can a tool as simple as a handheld vacuum be improved upon and specified to meet a designer’s needs?


The Problem The modern desktop vaccuum is far from perfect. Its limited charge capabilities and tendency to make even more of a mess than before render it virtually useless in its present state.

1 Plug vacuum into USB port

To give the design a direction and purpose, the vacuum was based off the design language of Ray-Ban, a trendy and fashionable company that focuses on the vintage aspect of their products.

•Need computer •Limits range of vaccuum

2 Pull apart vacuum to empty •Difficult to pull apart •Vacuumed substance falls out •Limited storage space

3 dual bridge

Empty contents •Most of the substance falls out before you get a chance to empty over trash can

Fitting comfortable in the hand and quietly in the corner of the desk, the final product, named Iota for its exceptional functionality in cleaning small messes, is a useful and necessary addition to any work station.

green lifestyle

Adam Wolf · 513 600 2987

It’s not easy being nonprofit. How could my team improve the resources of a nonprotfit CSA with practically no funding?


The Enright Ridge Eco Village owns a prefabricated bicycle cart, which provides them a very limited used.

Adam Wolf · 513 600 2987

They would like to use their supplies to optimize the cart’s abilities, allowing it to be used to carry tools and be set up as a produce stand.


Adam Wolf 路 513 600 2987


Final Product Fitting directly on top of the cart, the stand can hold up to nine shovels at once, while the rails and poles hold the shovels in place, regardless of whether you are riding up or down a hill.

nonlethal force

Adam Wolf 路 513 600 2987

A taser attack can be life-ending. How can the defense mechanisms of a fire-bellied toad inspire a safer taser?


Work in progress

The Fire-bellied Toad Just don’t call it a frog

How can these features contribute to fewer taser deaths?

Fire-bellied Toads are the only toad or frog with teardrop-shaped eyes

Don’t touch! These toads’ skin can cause irritation to human skin and eyes Force air from their throat down to their lungs, producing a mating call similar to a dog bark

These toads are deadly! Their skin is so toxic, it can seriously harm, or even kill, certain animals

Lay about 30 eggs at a time, which will hatch in less than a week

Their extra long webbing helps them swim quickly through water Adam Wolf · 513 600 2987

The bright red belly acts as a warning siren to predators about its’ toxicity


They can live up to 15 yearsa decade and a half of toady fun!

Work in progress

The taser lights up and intimidates the victim into submission, so it hopefully does not have to be fired.
