Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, hope you enjoy 

Contacting Manufacturers

With a clear idea of the design direction, I would like to pursue, I had quickly contacted a couple of Glass manufacture who specialise in precise and bespoke glass manufacturer, these being, Sunderland glass centre and techglass. 

With the intention to use opal glass, my lecturer had pre-warned me how opal glass for one can be very hard to come by and secondly can be over twice as expensive as traditional glass. So with that in mind i wanted to discover if this design direction was actually feasible considering I would want to make three bespoke diffuses, each with their own character.

After a few emails and phone calls, it was clear that this design direction wouldn't be feasible.
