Precedents Diamond Tears Edge Headphone The collaboration between technology experts at Monster and engineer, songwriter, producer and actor, Park Jin Young, has allowed them to create a headphone that is high-class in sound and design. The product will be released in Australia at around June. The headphone comes in two colours: white and black. Each incongruent triangle were carefully calculated and positioned so that it reflects like at any angle it is seen from. Apart from the high-tech qualities of the headphones, the thing that strikes me is the design. The design is symmetrical and utilises incongruent triangles. So I will try to panelise my model with triangles whilst randomising the points on the model. Furthermore, I like the quote “Edgy like diamonds, smooth like tears” by Monster and JYP because it perfectly blends in two opposite textures.
“EDGY LIKE DIAMONDS, SMOOTH LIKE TEARS”
The BoxX panel was the closest in resembling the design of the headphones. Once I used the ‘point offset border’ function and the attractor point, the model looks similar to the previous one but not as ordered.
I used the feature ‘shuffle grid’ in hope to randomise the points and then panelise it so that it looks somewhat like the headphones; however, it was unsuccessful because panels were being formed with points on the other side of the model.
