PIERRE ADAM SCHMĂœCK Industrial Design Portfolio

Good design means to explore new paths to be innovative. This includes to learn something new and to make experiences. To grasp what the people needs I must observe and get personal involved to build a deep empathy. It opens the way to generate innovative solutions that enhance the people‘s life and their enviornment. Let‘s start the journey!

DOUBLE DECK train interior

1:1 Measurement & Structure Model To find out if the conception works I masked a 1:1 section on the ground to get a real size feeling of the space. I had to know how much space I need between the chairs and how big the passageway needs to be. Addtionally I made a structure model to get setting of all each sections in the train and how they fit together.

Variations To find the best solution for the chairs I did seat explorations to figure out what will work, which shapes fit together and also are comfortable.

THE SEATS The seats on the right have got the best attributes there are be needed. They can combined together or just on it‘s own. Thanks to the advanced 3D print technology they light, staible and thin.

UNDER THE HOOD head protection product

THE 1. CONCEPT I wanted to go away to design another helmet. I realised that many people like to have overhead earphones. I started to take this for my inspiration and did variations how the protection for the head might look like.

UNDER THE HOOD head protection product

I needed to rethink my idea! At a certain stage of my the design process I noticed that my idea won‘t work. I had to think where all the technique has to go and if it would offer adequate procetion for the user.

2. CONCEPT The hood should look like a common hood but when it‘s needed the hood unfold itself and covers the user‘s head.

DESIGNPROCESS 1. Step experimenting and testing with vikoelastic foam 2. Step reflecting insights, explorate possibilities, testing folding and blowing system 3. Step scaling, proportions, cutting, sewing,

THE IDEATION In the beginning there is the ideation process where I wanted to find the best shape and mechanism for my hybrid product.

So I sketch possilities to visualise what would work or not that I can make the next step.

CUTTERBONE hybrid product

THE RENDERING With the CAD model and rendering I realised the proportion and how thin I can make the prototype that it fits in a pencil case. Furthermore, I made color variations to see which I liked the most.

THE MECHANISM The mechanisim is a magnet-click system. Therefore the magent accomplish its purpose by holding the knife by its property and also due to the click system.

THE SHAPES There are slightly differences between these two shapes. My personal task was it how far and close I go to make the difference. The left form study is an lying object as contrasted with the right object which an floating object
