ABOUT ME Recent graduate from Northumbria University, driven to find new and interesting ways to solve problems and help improve peoples lives in a fun and creative way.

BATHROOM TABLE A small bathroom table designed for bathstore’s Transition Collection.

Available at:

Overview While working on my placement at bathstore, I was asked to look into designing a table for the bathroom. It was to be used along side a bath. The bathroom is an ever evolving environment with more and more products being added to suit peoples needs. Women in particular enjoy reading in the bath or even having a glass of wine and there is no real table currently on the market.

Sketchwork Initial sketchwork looking to create a variety of simple and minimal designs.

CAD Concepts A number of Solidworks models were made to create a 3D representation of the design. Using Keyshot, materials can be added meaning the colour swatches of Rose Gold or Chrome with White could be tested.

There is no lip so the surface is smooth, there is also a chrome finish around the top.

Final Concept The final concept was a Chrome and White square table with rounded edges and an offset base. It was designed to fit in with the new Transition range, set to launch in June 2016

The towel rail is built in making it east to dry your hands if reading or on a device.

Weighted base to counteract the offset base and provide a sturdy base of support. The Stand is offset from the middle meaning that the table top will hang slightly over the bath.

Manufacturing The drawings of the chosen design were sent to ASAQ in China to have the drawings approved before being sent for manufacturing. 410

LIVING THE DRAIN Working alongside Northumbrian Water, think of a way to help prevent the blocking of drains

The Problem People often cannot be bothered to pour fat into the bin as it is hot and can burn through the bin bag, it is also much easier to pour it down the sink. When poured down the sink it solidifys and blocks the drain. ÂŁ15 million per year is spent on un

The Solution A foil lined “Fat Box� that is kept next to the sink. This box is made from flat pack card and is supplied free of charge by Northumbrian Water. This holds all excess fat and is thrown into the bin when it is full. The Fat Box comes with a fat scraper to help remove solidified fat.

How it Works

Pour your oil, grease or fat in

Close the box and peel back the tabs

Seal the box and throw it away

Scrape the solidified fat oil or grease out of the pan and bin it

Advertising Campaign “Refrain from the Drain� is an advertising campaign that would be run on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to help raise awareness of the problem.
