NEW DIETARY /

1970 30%

2012 46.8%

After analyzing the modern lifestyle, found that the number of single people and nuclear families has been increasing, and so does the frequency of dining alone. Our living space is getting smaller nowadays and the pace of lifestyle tends to be faster and more functional. Thus, I take the new dietary habits into consideration and design a series of tableware, which is easily stored and friendly for people who dine alone.

SCENARIO /


WHY CHOOSE SILICONE? For single people and nuclear families, they need tableware which can be easily cleaned and stored. And silicone possesses the features of flexibility, plasticity and insulating to meet the demands above.

• Strength

• Foldable

• Flexible

Combining soft and rigid materials into a single object, eases the way of folding.

Through folding and unfolding operation, the tableware could switch between 2D and 3D.

With the combination of flexible and rigid materials, a new and bendable material is born.


07_ PIN; Flattening Project

EXPERIMENT /

• Length Bottom

• Height • Width FOLD LINES_ The angles and lengths of lines directly influence the length, height, and width of the tableware. Trying again and again with different creased patterns to make different shapes, and adjust the details after folding.


PAPER MODEL_

• The first folding design could only form simple shapes. • Therefore, the second folding design is developed by adding the pedestals in edge of the tableware. • The height of the tableware was shortened but turned out that the it's not easy to fold after the adjustment. • The final version solves the problems so the tableware can be folded smoothly.


07_ PIN; Flattening Project

STRUCTURE EXPERIMENT / The initial mock-ups' mold was made by 3D printing, and the mock-ups were repeatedly adjusted after the verification of the thickness of folding surfaces so the overall structure can be folded properly. Also, the problem of liquid leaking has been solved after the tests and get the final version of thickness and width eventually.

• Corner

• Sided

There are two problems that make the surfaces of tableware hard to fit with each other perfectly. One is that the edges of different surfaces would bump with each other which make it difficult to fit. The other is that the narrow of the creased surface wasn’t wide enough, and resulted in wrinkles on the surface. Therefore, bevels inside were added on both sides of the round edge in case of bumping together after folding.

Since single-sided crease was unable to fold the tableware into shape. The crease was moved to the middle in order to form the double-sided crease. The width of crease has also been adjusted to fit different surfaces with each other more smoothly.


• Leakage problem The problem of liquid leaking was tested after the experiment of filling up the tableware. In consequence, silicone was applied as the material to make fasteners more inseparable due to the flexibility of the material itself.

FINAL PROCESS / The final production procedures are the following steps - gypsum mold developing, ceramic grouting, glazing, and firing at last. Totem series will be stick to the stained paper on the ceramic part then conduct biscuit firing .

PIN; Flattening Project The design focuses on the new habit of dietary and modern lifestyle. The living spaces are getting smaller in our modern lives, so the objects need to be stored appropriately to save space. The demographic structure also influence the habits of dietary, therefore, dining alone and storage are the initial of the design.
