01 Offcut Table Using materials considered to be waste, design and make a piece of furniture, focusing on easy disassembly for future disposal.

Waste

Disassembly


Offcut Table

A table made from scrap materials, Offcut explores how waste can be used to create unique pieces of furniture.

All the components are held in tension by recycled string and threaded bar, not glue, allowing easy disassembly.


SKETCH DEVELOPMENT

Following modelling with string and folders, sketching explored combinations of waste materials as well as developing the form into a table.

Trialling different ways of assembling all the components lead to exploring potential table tops and fixing methods.

It was important to create maximum tension from the string to make the table as strong as possible. .


MATERIAL DETAILING Commonly found materials made up sections of the table, showing how the experimental nature of ideation led to the final table.

Screws

Threaded Bar

Folders

String

Tubing


02 Otamo Chairs The fastest growing furniture sector is online sales, meaning the products go directly from the manufacturer to the client. Design a new piece of furniture for an online sales brand.

SKETCH AND 3D DEVELOPMENT

The concept was to design a set of accent chairs that could be used for couples and individuals in a lounge environment.

Using traditional Japanese ideals of craft, models helped ideate forms which featured Mjolk’s use of laddered backing.

Testing combined pattern and textiles within the upholstery, adding a contemporary spin on a traditional piece of furniture.

Simplistic


SKETCH AND 3D DEVELOPMENT

Following task analysis of how people use kitchen scales, the chosen direction was to create an inclusive bowl and scale.

Sketch ideation led to exploring different shapes for interfaces and bases, as well as handles and spouts

Modelling helped decide proportions and visual interplay between all the components.
