Salt Shaker

Project Breif: Design a salt shaker or


pepper grinder using 3D printed parts
and turned wood. The challenge is to
explore the relationship between the
two materials.

AD 215
Inspiration
Inspiration for this project came from
the sleek and meaningful designs of
skyscrapers.

More importantly I drew from the


parallels of strength found in trees
that grow as tall as buildings such as
the Giant Redwoods.

Tall and curvy buildings inspire form


Ideation
The ideation process began by
sketching salt shakers, because it is
easier to visualize the relation
between wood and 3D print.

I favored designs that appeared to


be ergonomic over those that were
“sharp-looking”. In the end I chose
the bottom right design.
Exploration began with salt shakers then moved to pepper grinders

Final iteration of design process


3D Design
The initial prototyping process began
with the analysis and measurment
of the grinder internals. After which,
a detailed 3D model could be made
using Rhino.

The models showed which design


aspects work better than others.

First design looks too thin and awkward

Final Model
The process of creating the
final pepper grinder began with
woodturning the body of the grinder.

The next step was to 3D print the


head and captive nut system. this
was done using a Sindoh Dp202 FDM
printer and PLA filament.

Laminated Wood

Project Breif: To design a household


furnishing which utilizes laminated
wood properties as a main element.
These processes include glueing and
bending of wood.

AD 256
Inspiration
My inspiration for this project
came from the elegantly designed
furniture that I saw while researching
laminated wood techniques.

The curves and interactions between


its materials inspired me to design an
elegent desk lamp.

Great example of compound curved laminate


Heavily curved form interacting with straight legs

Inspiring shape with support from steel tube


First iteration is too bizarre

Ideation
Thumbnail sketches showed that
bent wood reflected the scope of
the project; which was to explore
the design process of the wood
laminating process.
The final wave design shows tribute
to the way light shimmers across
surfaces, and pays respect to
lamination processes.

Second lamp concept, too derivative

Detail Shots
The final step of the modelling
process was to render the lamp using
Keyshot.

Using Keyshot I created several


combinations of wood and metal
while keeping in mind my initial
inspiration.

Kitchen Utensil

Project Breif: The design of a kitch-


en utensil made from a single 2x4”
block of Cherry hardwood.

AD 215
Inspiration
The inspiration for this project was
taken from minimalist furniture
which deamands functionality and
aestetic, but not at the expense of
strength. Another source was the
elegant thin lines foud in nature.

Thin curved profiles were heavily inspiring


Ideation
Orghographic sketching was used
to rapidly ideate designs of a broad
spectrum. In the end the “Spoonula”
sauce soppn design was chosen.
In order to pull-off such a simple
design an exteme amount of
emphasis needed to be put on finish
and cohesiveness.
3D Design
The 3D design process began with
several high-quality prototypes
being produced. This ensured an
understanding of the behavior of
Cherry Wood in thin profiles and its
workability with power tools.
Final Model
The final spoon model was made
using power tools and hand tools to
extract a form from a raw wood block.

The final piece was sanded to 1000


grit then oiled several times with
olive oil. The reason for this oil being
used as a stain is to ensure a food-
safe finish.

Shoe Design

Project Breif: The design of a kitch-


en utensil made from a single 2x4”
block of Cherry hardwood.

AD 256
Inspiration
The inspiration for this project
was derived by observing natural
environments and their surface
behavior. The goal was to create
three shoes that appear to mimic
their intended environment.
Rough terrain demands distinct shoe design

Exagerated features, should reflect in shoes


Ideation
These shoe drawings were meant to
slowly explore several styles of shoe
as well as their soles.

It was challenging to find noe


combinations of upper designs in
relation to their tread pattern.
Goldie
This shoe is a highly-breathable
urban hiking shoe. its purpose it to
be supportive but durable, with the
ability to wear everyday on the street.
Deep tread for gravel paths

Breathable knit upper with heel support


Frost
A snow boot with the rigidity of
a hiking shoe but insulation of a
winterboot. Using neoprene as the
upper-material the boot retains
its shape in hard hiking but also
insulates heat.
Tall sole for snow and ice

Neoprene upper and waterproof midsole


Sands
This trainer is for people who like to
run on the sand at beaches. it takes
its tread design from the tires of dune
buggies which are meant to scoop
sand for best efficiency.
Paddle-like sole for sand running

Mesh upper for water drainage

Speaker Design

The design requirements of this


speaker project was; to use 3D mod-
elling and printing for the redesign of
an existing speaker.

AD 235
Inspiration
Inspiration for this speaker came
from the iconic and simplistic nature
of new Scandanavian design.
Simple shapes Sturdy construction

Grey fabric adds dimension


Ideation
Orghographic sketching was used
to rapidly ideate designs of a broad
spectrum. In the end the “Spoonula”
sauce soppn design was chosen.
In order to pull-off such a simple
design an exteme amount of
emphasis needed to be put on finish
and cohesiveness.
needed to tear shell because of glued construction

Tear Down
The original speaker was glued
together which made dissasembly
tough. The bottons were integral
so they could not be used in the
redesign.
Immidiately following the tear-down
an exploded sketch was drawn of
the parts, and they were modeled in
Solidworks

Sanding + Paint
The raw surface of the 3D prints were
sanded and filled using spot filler.

After spot filler, primer and topcoat


were applied. Following the topcoat
felt was used to finish the piece to
give it a more agressive aestetic.

Final Revision
After completing the final speaker,
and not being satisfied with the
appearance of the light grey felt
mixed with the dark grey. It was then
decided to use dark grey felt for the
entire speaker. The result was a more
cohesive design.

Ice Cream Scoop

6
The objective of this design project is
to dissasemble an existing ice cream
scoop and use it as a base on which to
create an original piece.

AD 235
Inspiration
Inspiration for this project was taken
from succulent plants. In particular
the Crassula “Moonglow” Succulent
(shown right) which is in the same
family as Aloe, Agave, and Jade.
Took inspiration from the scale-like patterns
Ideation
The first set of ideation sketches were
made to heavily focus on form and
function. In order to make a proper
scoop the handle needed to look and
feel correct. After which intricate
designs were drawn.
It was important to explore as many forms as possible
Fully dissasembled Kitchen-Aid scoop

Concept Handles
Concept handles were made from
green foam. This ensured the correct
dimensions. After the correct feel was
found ideation of form was explored.
Secondary handle forms Carved final idea out of foam
Final Template
The final handle model needed to
be perfect, so that no mistakes are
copied into the resin casting. This
required the liberal use of sandpaper
and spot filler to flatten its surface.

Mould Making
The mould making process begins
with creating a pour-box, and making
a clay form. After which the top and
bottom of the mould can be poured

Finally, the mould halves can be


cleaned using a knife and a pour
spout can be cut in the top.

Fresh-pulled resin cast

Finish + Paint
After sanding the cast resin, the voids
and defects are filled with either body
filler or spot filler. This ensures a
surface ready for primer.

The surface was then sanded to 500


grit and sprayed with a base coat and
three top coats of automotive enamel
paint.

Product Shots
The final product is a soft and
inviting shape with a large ammount
of grip due to its design. It fits well in
the hand and scoops ice cream well.

Sheet Metal Lamp

Project Breif: To design a household


furnishing which utilizes laminated
wood properties as a main element.
These processes include glueing and
bending of wood.

AD 235
Inspiration
The inspiration for this project
was taken from modern Japanese
architecture. Which utilizes straight
boards of wood and steel to create
extravagant structures.

Verticle boards higly inspiring


Different methids of building vertically
Ideation
The ideation process took a long time
due to the constraints of the project,
and the use of sheetmetal. Eventually
a teired reflection-based design was
chose.
Mock-up
A cardboard mock-up was made
in order to establish the correct
proportions. It was then used as a
template for the sheetmetal and
wood.

Final design (iteration one) on cardboard


Full-size cardboard model (first iteration)

Searching for a more cohesive design


Woodworking
A bandsaw and several sanders were
used to construct the upright, and its
base. The pieces have a taper to them
which gives the illusion of a stronger
and lighter construction.

Sheet Metal
The sheet metal was adjusted several
time to achieve a cohesive design. In
the end, all of the sheet metal was
bent at angles 90 degrees ore more.

Cut and finished louvers


Sand + Stain
The sanding step took the most time
due to the finishes that I wanted.
I sanded the sheet metal to a high
satin finish, then clear coated. The
Wood was also a high satin and
waxed.

Clearcoat applied to aluminum. to resist oxidation

Honey and beeswax applied After polishing the beeswax


Product Shots
The final product is a desk lamp
that does not operate off direct
light sources. The reflected light
diffuses and is less harsh. In addition
a portion bleeds to the ceiling and
surrounding area to create a warm
environment.

Miscellaneous

This is a collection of various


projectects. Included are; logos,
art projects, package design, and
photography.
Rotational Mould
This project was done as a
competition submission for the
WinSell Granite rotational moulding
competition.
My submission is a cooler outrigger
for river or lake kayakers. Its purpose
is to balance the boat and provide
a source of cold drinks to prevent
dehydration.

Flaps and interior of package design

Starter Kit
This package design project was
done during my time interning at
Saddleback Church, Lake Forest. The
problem was that the current starter
kit was poorly designed and too large.
The solution was to work with the
local print shop. I was responsible for
designing the package itself, the die-
cut template, and its graphics.
