Portable Desk Light

I designed and made a portable Desk light for my first Year project, it is the first model I have ever made.
The Bullet shaped form retracts out into a light weight portable desk lamp that is powered by lithium polymer batteries. The LED’s are lit through a sand blasted lens to give a diffused glow, avoiding troublesome hot spots. The hinging mechanism is made from two laminated carbon fibre arms that not only look great but provide a very critical element to the function of the desk light, using each arm as a conductor for positive and negative current eliminating the need for wires and slimming down the design. The carbon arms are coated in clear glaze to prevent short circuiting. there is a charging plug in the back of the light and the metal adjusting rod features a dimmer setting suitable for any lighting condition required. The Design is finished off in the famous Ford GT40 Gulf Racing scheme, other finishes of other race cars would be made available, for example: Martini Porsche 917K and the JPS Livery on the Type 72 Lotus F1 cars.

The Showering Experience.

The brief extended from the ‘Form finding Study’ onto adjusting the Form from the Form Finding study to become a Product.
I created my design into a ‘Showering Experience’, the unit would realistically be place in either out door settings or large spaces for the wealthy. The unit would be constructed from stone, with added touches of soft wood. The ‘Showering Experience’ features storage compartments that blend into the sculpture, a self closing toilet lid, a mirror that angles down, seamless gutter drainage systems on the basin of the sink and shower, unique tap controls that resemble the throttle of a boat, a clock to observe the duration of the shower, and a tap in the basin that sprouts water up like a fountain as opposed to normal taps that drip down.

Form Finding Study.

Taking a block of foam, the brief is to create a form to represent a chosen word, mine being “Corruption”, all of the Foam must be utilised. This is what I came up with.
