Inspired by summers spent as a camp counselor I observed a huge change between my childhood and the children of today. I would constantly confiscating technology from the children. They were too distracted by their technologies to notice and enjoy their surroundings. It got me thinking, how could I create sort of product that encourages kids to get out and play while fitting into their day to day routine?

LEVEL 1: UNDER 30 MINUTES OF ACTIVITY

Based of the 60 minutes of activity children are supposed to partake in a day. Lumina changes color for every 30 minutes of activity allowing for the user to see at least one color change per day.


LEVEL 2: 30-6O MINUTES OF ACTIVITY

LEVEL 2: OVER 60 MINUTES OF ACTIVE PLAY

After 4 hours of non-activity the device automatically syncs with the computer to update the child’s statistics for the day and resets the accelerometer and color.

PEEL

Users don’t always understand where a product comes from, but are always quick to criticize elements of a product they dislike. Peel is a lamp that allows the user to become more involved in the design process, creating a closer relationship between designer and user.

ARBOR

A solar seating station that allows for a physical, mental & electronic recharge in the hustle and bustle of city life. Arbor takes on the existence of isolation in an urban setting. A group project sponsored by the City of San Jose, under Leslie Speer & John McClusky. Group members include Joseph Sanchez, Bryan Day, Maria Lopez, Bryan De Leon, and Vince Pascual. The project was featured as part of the San Jose Green Vision Clean Energy Showcase and Sustainability 3.0 at San Jose State University.

THE JOURNEY OF ARBOR 1

Arbor started out as a class assignment sponsored by the City of San Jose as well as a local solar company. The original concept of Arbor was that of my classmate Joseph Sanchez. Pictured is his scale model. “Arbor is a multi-level seating system inspired by observations of nature, technology and urban living. Because of its modularity Arbor can be placed anywhere in the city from the heart of downtown to the edge of suburban areas.”

2

After being chosen by the San Jose Public Art Committee, Joe organized a team of his peers to bring develop the concept of Arbor. As part of the team I helped to bring Arbor to life.

3

As part of a team we quickly developed mock-ups and sketches reflecting ideas we had to refine Joe’s concept.

4

A full scale model was created to help the team gain a better understanding of scale. It brought Arbor into the tangible world.

5

A prototype was built by Stoller Studios of San Jose with help from the team. Once completed the prototype was installed in Downtown San Jose as part of the San Jose Green Vision Clean Energy Showcase

MOCK-UPS

Thinking of the idea of play I drew inspiration from Russian nesting dolls. Sketch ideation focussed on how the pieces would fit together and details like joinery . Mock-ups were crucial in the development process ruling out concepts by exploring what could realistically be made.

MATERIALS & PROCESSES BAMBOO

ALUMINUM

Durapalm tambour paneling is made of bamboo strips that are milled and applied to a thin fabric backing with formaldehyde-free adhesive. It is a flexible material that can be applied to concave, convex or flat surfaces.

Aluminium is a soft, durable, lightweight, ductile and malleable metal with appearance ranging from silvery to dull gray, depending on the surface roughness.

ENTRAP

An easy to store stackable food steamer designed to promote healthy eating. It cuts down on prep and clean up by allowing food to be taken directly from the steamer to the table without any extra dishes.

RESEARCH 1

Steamer pot sets are inconvenient because the steamer can only be used with the accompanying pot, their size also poses a storage issue.

2

Adjustable “blooming” steamers sit upon the bottom of the pot. The lid of the pot collects condensation from the steam which drips down back into the food making it soggy.

3

Electric steamers are very large even when in they are in storage mode. They are wasteful because individual parts cannot be replaced if lost or broken

4 3

4

Traditional Bamboo Steamers are hard to clean, hard to store, and will only fit in certain pots; i.e. the wok, which isn’t a commonly found 99 in American kitchens. BECKY FIELD becky.k.field@gmail.com

ENJOY!

1

Steamer and stock pot are taken out. Food is prepared and placed into/onto steaming chamber or tray.

2

Chambers and trays are assembled. Components are stacked and stock pot is filled with water. The steamer is placed over stock pot. Heat is applied. Cook time varies according to recipe.

3

Once food is cooked, steamer is disassembled. The upper tray and chamber are removed from the lower, the lower chamber and tray are flipped over.

4

The chambers are removed and the trays are then taken to the table to serve food.

5

The steamed food is then eaten and enjoyed off of the trays. After meal, the steamer components (sans bamboo; which must be hand washed) can be placed in the dishwasher to clean. Clean steamer is put away.

HOW IT WORKS

The entrap steamer uses a moist-heat technique of cooking which means that food is cooked using heated water. It is the same technique that is used in bamboo steamers. Water is placed in a pre-existing stock pot or similar style pot, food is prepared outside of the steamer, then moved into the steamer. The steamer is placed on top of the stock pot and heat is applied until the water reaches 212째F and turns to steam. The steam travels through the compartments of the steamer and cooks the food; cooking time varies depending on individual recipes. The entrap replaces the need for a pot lid when steaming food. It simply sits upon the lip of the pot and traps the steam. BECKY FIELD becky.k.field@gmail.com

WHAT DO WE CARRY?

HOW DO WE CARRY?

AESTHETIC INSPIRATION

The first step in brainstorming was to list off what people carry when they are on a bike.

Secondly I brainstormed how people carry their things on the bike.

Looking at eco-friendly brands like Simple and Keen I began to consider materials and aesthetics that would compliment Globe Bikes.

By doing so I was able to generate ideas that fit the needs of our users.

BECKY FIELD becky.k.field@gmail.com

IDEATION + EXPLORING FORM Using rapid ideation, I generated a large amount of ideas that I could finesse and conceptually develop. The final five concepts revolved around ideas such as user interaction, maintaining the Globe look and addressing my demographic. Mock-ups where made to work out details concerning stitching, storage, the hanging mechanism and integrated bungees. BECKY FIELD becky.k.field@gmail.com

This project focused on prototyping so the sketch and development process was relatively slow. The greatest information was gathered during the model making process. Bending wood proved to be a challenging task, but overall I was successful in achieving the convex surfaces I wanted.
