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 

1:4 Maquette 'Families'


Once three ‘bases’ had been identified as plausible concepts, I explored their design language and developed the ‘background’ lights to create a family. 

After seeing the scale model, it was apparent a few things were off - proportions and scale. This will be resolved and in doing so it will slim down the two ‘background’ lights so little attention is attracted to them - the emphasis should be on the ‘base’,  artefacts and the effect of light.

In addition to this realisation, it was clear that the forms I had made were to 'interesting for the purpose of the project. Designing forms which hold a sense of character and intrigue is something i enjoy; however it's not appropriate for this brief. 

Although it's not fully resolved the final design is not far away.
