Chair 1.8 is a 20mm sheet of acrylic heat bent 8 times
to create the body of the chair, designed with Marcel Breuer Wassily chair and sheet material manufacture in mind.
Initial Sketch Ideation and Development Much of my initial ideation orientated around metal and wood and the use of slots and CNC cut joints, but throughout my design process I moved onto bending sheet materials like plastics. This is obvious in my sketching and developments.
Customise and Modify Due to the materials used in this product of Chair 1.8 many different coloured finishes can be achieved for no extra cost, the same canâ€™t be said for the pads however. Below shows how the foot stool / side table fits comfortably underneath the chair where it can be stored for use. The image also outlines the various colours and finishes which can be achieved.
360 degree hem bend forms the crown of the chair with a 15mm spacing. Each pad is lined and secured with a band of brushed aluminium. The pad is made of a black cotton with a 1mm lattice. Stuffed with a medium density foam for supportive comfort. The whole body of the chair is made of 1 single sheet of transparent acrylic, heat bent 8 times to form the arms, seat, legs and back. A 5 degree incline in the back rest offers support and comfort to the user. A rubber bar is fixed to the bottom of both legs for grip on smooth floors.
Brief - RSA Accounting for how different groups in society are affected by loneliness, design a way to reduce its impact on one or more of the following: physical health, mental health, or access to services.

Brief Design an innovative new product for the â€˜Bloxâ€™ product range to be sold in Wilko Stores across the UK. The concept should be supported by in-depth research into your chosen field.
03|Blox Bed Building The Blox Bed Building Tray is a building surface for Blox Bricks. Height adjustable, functional and child friendly the product is an ideal item for any kids ideal Blox bedroom.
Initial Mood Board When developing my final idea I like to create mood boards to remind myself of my direction and themes. The board on this page refelects the child friendly, bed orientated concept I developed, the Blox Bed Building tray.
Functional and Adjustable Due to the modular design of the product height of the work surface can be adjusted to make it more practical and comfortable for kids of all sizes. Additional pieces could be developed to change the angle, size and pitch of the work surface and product. This would make the product; the same way Blox is; fully constructable and modular. With the ability to become compatible with any bed.
The Blox Bed Building Tray These renders really show he modular design of the product. As demonstrated on the previous page the units can be set up for play in bed, as a bedside table or as a stand a play surface promoting healthy living to kids.
04|Night Shield The Hard Bodied key case protecting your key from digital theft and providing practical solution to pitch black key use.
Brief Companies and organisations that use promotional branded products do so because they wish to achieve a number of objectives. In most cases they want to raise awareness of their brand, product or service. Your brief is to design a new promotional product.
Initial Ideation The first step of most of my projects is getting all of my initial ideas down to paper as quickly as possible, whether thatâ€™s with quick mind-maps, some speedy notes or a few rushed sketches. For this project our brief was very broad. So I wanted to explore different routes and avenues. From multi-tools too bottle openers I looked into a gap I could fill.
The LED light is controlled by the large On/Off button on the top of the case. The button is clear and obvious and only works with sustained pressure to save power.
When the case is opened the keys revolve around with gravity, you can then pick out the key you want close the case on the rest and use the key youâ€™ve picked out to unlock your door.
The pin is the pivot for all of the keys, it can be removed and slid back in and secured easily. Ensuring your keys are kept secure.
The LED lights up your unlocking scenario making it easier at night. Its bright, small, long-lasting and little power is needed. It also flashes when the GPS is activated.
These images show the key case opened (bottom) and closed (top).
Advertising and logoâ€™s can be easily applied onto the product faces.
