01 OFFCUT TABLE
04 ARTISTâ€™S DONKEY
01 Offcut Table Using materials considered to be waste, design and make a piece of furniture, focusing on easy disassembly for future disposal.
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.
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.
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 Mjolkâ€™s use of laddered backing.
Testing combined pattern and textiles within the upholstery, adding a contemporary spin on a traditional piece of furniture.
SCENARIO DETAILING “Furniture that you can sit on together, but that leaves room for the individual” MJOLK
03 Pop-up Scales Through focused research design and develop an innovative set of kitchen scales for Joseph Joseph.
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.
1. Take scale from storage
5. Pour and weigh ingredients
2. Place scale on surface
3. Pop out collapsible bowl
4. Turn on scale
6. Remove from magnetic base and pour

04 The Artistâ€™s Donkey Using accurate models, design a functional piece of storage which adheres to Isokon Plusâ€™s original Penguin Donkey values
Easy to Manufacture
Hole for water cup
Removable section to move around the studio
Lips to stop brushes or paint tubes rolling out
Stands for canvases and sketchpads
The Artistâ€™s Donkey _ Function
3D AND SKETCH DEVELOPMENT
Scale models led to choosing a donkey which stores art materials - this specific function led to a focused products
Sketch ideation explored sizes of contents, making sure the product fit around them
Full scale models kept the visual language consistent between components and ensured it was easy to manufacture out of plywood
9mm birch plywood 6mm birch plywood strips
Tall enough to stand...
