sheet material project acrospire brief : explore the commercial homeware market, developing a single or range of products, specifically for sheet material manufacturing.
biophilia (meaning love of nature) focuses on humanâ€™s innate attraction to nature and natural processes. biophilic design uses these ideas as principles to create a human-centred approach, that when applied improves many of the spaces in which we live and work today; improving our health & wellbeing, creating a stress-free environment.
acrospire is designed to make the most out of materials being made from two sheets; one for the main body of the bench, and the other for the shelf. the bench folds in on itself, creating plant pots for the shrubs to sit in.
Wilko projectWilko chemistry lab brief : design an innovative new product for the Blox product range to be sold in Wilko stores across the UK. the concept should be supported by in-depth research into your chosen field.
the age group i have designed this project for was 8-11 yearolds. one of the biggest crazes at the moment is playing with slime, being hands on and getting messy.
1st year sketch work
my chosen field was STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths). from my research, i found that in children there is a lack of interest in STEMrelated careers. therefore i wanted to design a product that would spark an interest and excitement into this area.
Wilko’s chemistry lab
build, play, learn this is not your normal chemistry set. from the user’s point of view it’s a chemistry set which they can build and do experiments with, but from the figure’s point of view it’s an industrial chemical lab.

â€œrefugees living on a camp have many skills, which they are unable to utilise due to the situation that they are in.â€? UNHCR, (United Nations High Commisson of Refugees)
zaatari is a refugee camp in jordan on the boarder to syria, which is home to 80,000 people
refugee connect is a space which allows refugees to make connections within the camp. people meet through sharing skills, creating a social space for building friendships through shared interests within the camp, creating a purpose of being there. refugee connect has devices for inputting peopleâ€™s details, skills, and qualifications, giving opportunities to swap skills.
a refugee will recieve a text that says another refugee is looking to connect, to exchange their skills. they will then arrange a time and a hub to meet at.
the refugees will then meet at their chosen meeting point, where there is an area to sit down and discuss how they can help one another, making connections and socializing.

part is sent back from the manufacturer to the user, made from recycled material
parts are recycled and the materials are then put back in to the production line to create new parts for the phones
replace - recycle - repair journey
the phone is taken apart with help and support from the top screen that runs off its own batteries
the phone needs to repair or upgrade a part
the user puts the phone back together so itâ€™s good as new
