Zippo Speakers Product Design

Volume control

My Zippo Speakers was one of my first product designs. It was the result of a series of exercises that asked us to transform one object into another, utilizing either its form or function or both. The Zippo Speakers are the result of the geometrical and functional analysis of the iconic Zippo lighter.

Plastic Waste Disposal System Product Design

This was the final project of the Operative Systems Design workshop at the university. This course was focused on introducing and developing tools that enabled the students to understand and intervene in any given problematic from a systematic perspective. This series of objects were designed to modify and improve the sequence of events that take place in a public area where plastic waste is gathered for its disposal. The system is designed to gather, compress and store plastic waste for recycling purposes in public areas such as commercial centres, airports, food courts, etc.
