Kingsley School were located at the top of the hill with forest surrounding, that’s giving an opportunity in touch with carpentry and fall in love with it. Furthermore, Westward Ho! Which a natural pebble ridge, just about 20 minutes’ drive from Kinsley School, there was the amazing place for a holiday. Every summer, all boarders will be there for sunbathing, surfing and barbecue. I feel comfort while living in Kingsley School, that was a sense of belonging a “Home” for me. By a plant pot with pestle and mortar, representing the growing period of myself during those years in the UK, and about how I soak into the different culture by communicating and experience. Bideford gave me alot inspiration Here is my Year 11 coursework and exam piece v left : collage piece right : woodland B&W and Colour


Plant Pot The shape inspired from the hill in Hong Kong and Bideford, and as a plant pot to grow a new life into also means to the time I have been growing up. Plant pot including the saucer for drain control

Mortar Mortar, the meaning of related forest in Bideford inspired me to found the interest in carpentry, the transition inspired to be a designer. Used with pestle crush plants release all the essential oils and keep the rich texture.

Pestle and Storage The shape and material inspired by the building in Hong Kong. The wooden pestle stores into concrete storage which representing I came from the city but I grew in Bideford also the concrete storage as a base of the whole product and my roots belonging to.

Extension of the ink rush of colors that appeared released into the water inspired me to design the blooming of the package for bathbomb or soap. The idea to create a package made by the natural material. After it to be used for the package, it can also become a container of the bath salt or powder, released from the package, (like a teabag) also benefits for skin during bath and also being a signal to remind and guide the customer. On the left-hand side, that’s the paper made by natural fabric, and the material needs to test the strength and the broken time in the water, provide the balanced paper break down in 20 mins in water, educate people in the right bathing

FORBINDELSE | QFC 5 weeks - Live project QFC - Sofas are increasingly used as zone dividers in open plan living areasto design a sofa for multifunctional properties with chosen brand.


Since we have chosen to design for IKEA, we have to take in consideration of the target customers are young adults, graduates, people who living in small apartments or constantly moving.


Brainstorming ideas which are inspired by IKEA’s new pet collection. We are also considering on incorporating existing IKEA products into our designs. Our general concept includes the idea of having a compact sofa which will allow users to take out extra seatings from the sofa for guests. The sofa’s modularity and storage concepts were inspired by the Bauhaus movement and LEGO. The seriousness of Bauhaus and the creativeness of LEGO allow the users the flexibility of creating their own space.

The Final design features two folded cushions which can be opened at. The two back rests are supported by a back board. The backrests can be removed as additional seat pads on the door and the main sofa will transform a bench/ sofa hybrid.
