LUCIA CARON PRODUCT DESIGN PORTFOLIO


Quando un personaggio è nato, acquista subito una tale indipendenza anche dal suo stesso autore, che può esser da tutti immaginato in tant’altre situazioni in cui l’autore non pensò di metterlo, e acquistare anche, a volte, un significato che l’autore non si sognò mai di dargli!

Luigi Pirandello - Sei personaggi in cerca d’autore

ENGLISH TRADUCTION When a character is born, he immediately acquires such independence even from his own author, who can be imagined by everyone in so many other situations in which the author did not think of putting it, and sometimes even buying a meaning that the author never dreamed of giving it! Luigi Pirandello - Six characters in search of an author


Hi, I am Lucia! My approach to design starts from a deep research about people and situations to better understand what is at the base and extract the essential elements that allow me to find a solution. At the same time I always try to keep my mind open to be inspired by every little thing interesting because often the answer is before our eyes! So I like to design useful objects, that solve a problem and that transmit a message / emotion, that tell a short story of humanity.

What is the value of makeup for a woman?

Daily gesture is not essential to the performance of the primary activities of life, but that assumes the same importance

Expressing one’s own femininity and enhancing one’s own image

Acquire greater self-confidence

COMMON CHARACTERISTICS

Ergonomics of the handle

Simplified opening

Enlargement of the packaging

Presence of a foothold that facilitates application

Materials: - Soft touch for gripping points - Copper metalization realized by sputtering technology

Decorative fan element used as a guide for use


LIPSTICK In this object the form strictly follows the function: the base is softer and more rounded to follow the curves of the hand holding it, while going up the body flattens to make it easier to use.

The particular top’s inclination allows the lipstick to rest comfortably in the hollow of the chin and then spread it horizontally.

27 mm ergonomic curvature On the back there are two magnets to mantain the cap open during use


MASCARA Mascara has many differences compared to the normal ones both in the opening and in the application. Also in this case the package has been enlarged both in height and width to allow for a firmer grip.

Thanks to the wheel you have a support point on the face that allows you to apply the mascara with a vertical movement

The brush is parallel to the lashes so as not to have to pull up the arm to spread the mascara thus simplifying the gesture


TROUSSE For the trousse has been designed a very simple opening which replaces the small cut present on most of the trousses diffused today, impossible to open for those with a motor deficit in the upper limbs.

The trousse thickness has been increased up to 15 mm, while the width has changed slightly.

So the trousse opens simply pulling the block thanks to a spring in the hinge that constitutes the snap mechanism.

A spring is integrated into the hinge to allow the cover to open by clicking

BRUSH The main problem of usual brushes is the reduced thickness of the handle, so in this case I mainly worked on the ergonomics of the grip which will be unique, but equipped with interchangeable heads.

The shape of this product has been totally redesigned both in size and in the trajectory followed by the curves.

MAGNITUDO COLLECTION


PREMISE The bathroom is the most intimate and deepest place in the house. It’s the place of transformation, where the masks rise before going outside the warmth and safety of our nest and at the same time it is also the place where at the end of the day the body is freed from every “artifice” to return to our true essence.


The mirror is the key subject of this metamorphosis. In front of it the most controversial feelings collide: vanity and shame, security and surprise. Its objective gaze does not judge or comment, it simply assists silently in the manifestation of our soul.


In this space the references to the reflecting surface are many: there’s the mirror of water in the bath, a round mirror in the make up area, another one fragmented near the entrance and all the chrome faucets.


The characteristic inclination of Magnitudo Collection faucets, combined with the chromed metal, reveals the secondary function of the mirror, which makes possible a perfect mimesis of the object in the environment without making it pass unnoticed.


The grand door slowly emerges from the deep intimacy of the bathroom, accompanying with its gentle rotary movement the passage through a small corridor that, between the wooden planks, begins to reveal the external reality.


Naos, Antares, Vega e Sirio. These are the names of the four components of Magnitudo Collection, that owe their name to some of the brightest stars of the Milky Way: just as the stars reflect the light of the sun, the taps sparkle reflecting the light of the surrounding environment.

CONCEPT A ritual is a set of actions that, in the whole of their succession, take on a particular value. This is the starting point of my project, as the name suggests. Thus, following an ancient gesture that refers to the tradition of the place of origin of pepper (India), Ritual has as its ultimate goal the experience of a perfect tasting of the raw material.


COMPONENTS The Sheesham wood refers to the place of origin of pepper (India), is resistant and difficult to attack by worms. It is used for the components to give a pleasant feel to the touch.

The untreated granite recalls the tools of the past and allows an excellent preservation of the raw material

many people wary


CONCEPT FLOW is a pedal-assisted pedalos sharing service, designed for those who prefer to feel free from urban traffic and more surrounded by nature. It is suitable for all the people that frequent the city for work, leisure and tourism.


APP Like all mobility sharing services, Flow has an application through which you can rent it and find the nearest available

There’s also the possibility to get a card that you can use to unlock the pedalo when your mobile phone is out of charge


DETAILS OF USE The little screen placed next to the seats is used to enter the unlock code of the pedalo and as a map during the journey

The lock bar connected to the turret anchors the pedalo to the dock with a magnetic lock

In the front door there are 2 life jackets to wear before departure

On the step there’s a a surface of almond aluminum to avoid slipping while getting on


TECHNICAL DETAILS

The pedalo is equipped with white front and red rear lights when used in the dark or with fog

Flow has an electric engine for the assisted pedaling which, thanks to a torque converter, exponentially increases pedaling power based on the pressure placed on the pedals by the feet

The rudder can be controlled from both positions and has a mechanical link that allow to turn in the same direction in which the bar is aimed

The perforated nylon seats have some holes that facilitate water drainage. At the bottom there are two tracks to adjust the distance from the pedals

Study of air flows


CONCEPT Flight is a collection of ceiling fans that comes from the desire to combine the functional aspect of the object with the playful one. Tha characteristic shape of an airplane, as well as a game, also refers to the physical principle that inspired its realization.


COMPONENTS OFF

A loop has been placed on the shell that rotates on itself to prevent the thread from twisting by turning.

The LAMP allows the attachment to the ceiling (and therefore the passage of the electric current), the rotation of the fan and obviously illuminates the room.

The fan is composed if a few pieces that are easy to assemble and produce


HOW IT WORKS

The particular inclination of the wings and their considerable size favor the descent of the air coiming from the helix slightly inclined among the vertical axis and therefore its diffusion in the room.

ON

When the airplane is turned on, driven by the air generated by the helix, it rotates on the rail above the lamp.

The switch consists of a lever for switching the light on and off and a wheel for adjusting the fan
