Working as a Design Consultant for a company based in Mumbai, India I had the opportunity to design eyewear for the Indian market. Created with 3-D printing in mind to create custom fit glasses for each customer. As part of this project I traveled to Mumbai to meet with the team and research the market, to make the design process more cohesive. This project is still in production so most of the work still cannot be published.
A Collection of work from Designing With Rhino from my very first project to the last. These showcase my skills with the program. All of the models are original designs.
SDE: Modular Wayfinding
Working in a group with Wyeth Birch and Kristen Orr, we developed wayfinding modules for use in the Techstyle Haus, specifically in the exhibition part of Solar Decathlon Europe. The modules make use of the photo luminescent coating by using its properties to create zero energy lighting. They are set in a pattern around the house, appearing more frequently when there is an interesting aspect of the house that calls for extra attention.
Luminescent Modular System
Taking advantage of the photo luminescent coating donated by Performance Indicator I created a system of modules. They can be arranged in different ways, using the coating to determine the pattern of light. In a further iteration I would explore the possibility of creating volume with the modules, to exaggerate its dimensions.
SDE: Zero Energy Lighting Proposals
Working with the RISD/Brown/Erfurt Solar Decathlon team, our developed a lighting concept using a coating donated to us by Performance Indicator. Inspired by the sustainable features in Techstyle Haus our group decided to use the photo luminescent coating to integrate the Solar Cells more cohesively with the facade of the house.
In a group project with Gavin Atkinson and Sue Kim, we designed and built a playful and durable cardboard chair for children. The project constraints needed the chair to be a comfortable, attractive cardboard chair made of no more than one sheet of corrugated cardboard. The chair also had to survive interaction with a group of kids that came to studio as a test of strength and durability.
Final for Wood II. The constraints were to make a piece of furniture without using more than a 2X42X9in board of wood. Finger joint construction.
Submission to the Battery Conservancy chair design competition. Inspired by the sense of enclosure one gets while being in NYC surrounded by so much stimulus and concrete.
