context

project /01 There is a tendency in the future to live in places reduced in size. We will need to save room by creating functional furniture.

project /03

concept - Organic-functional shape.

single chair:

made with 4 pieces out of the full product

the problem project goals

how to storage extra furniture that are only used occasionally - functional design - 2+ chairs in one - assembled without tools

full product:

one chair including four chair components: 16 pieces in total.

playful night light

project goals the product - help to overcome fear of the dark - create a friendly companion - develop an easy to produce polypropylene lamp

Assamble-yourself LED lamp. Friendly, playful and collectionable. Change its posture with the snaps buttons and have fun.

the searching

The lamp needed to be playful, easy to produce and with minimum material waste. It should build mostly from a single plastic sheet.

project /01

project /02

project /03

the chosen alternative

functional design details - lamp shape in one piece to fold up - uses led “stick and click” light - two “arms” attached by snap buttons - two snap buttons attached to the lamp “legs” - buttons allow the user to play with the lamp character positions and to attach it to other units.

Cotton harvester Development of cotton transportation system to gin

BRIEF / CONTEXT / PROBLEM / RESEARCH / CONCEPT / RESAULTS

project /01

context

Dust generated in the process of ginning cotton causes respiratory health issues for workers and surrounding inhabitants.

//

project /02

the problem

project /03

Cotton is mixed with dust in the harvesting process and it’s often dropped on the soil

Polluting agents Cotton gin dust

cotton gin

population

objetive

dust free

Keep cotton clean of dust from harvesting to ginning.

research

- visit to cotton gin in Argentina - interviews with employees - data recollection from harvesting and ginning processes. Analysis

concept Protection and isolation. Container module to store cotton until it’s ginned.

clean cotton

container design

Polybutylene bag with cut outs to expand during the harvesting and constricts it a 30% when transporting cotton to the gin.

the solution

The new cotton harvester stores cotton in closed bags, keeping it dust free and easier to transport. It can harvest up to 9 tons and the bags are reusable.

resaults

/ transport clean cotton to the gin / less pollution = less respiratory health issues / better ginned cotton quality

What’s left to improve? / user interface of module bags and basket / production details / design commands for the new harvesting system / material and technology sustainability CLEANCOTTON

Storage and transport in bags of 1,5 tn each
