Haven Rig is a front faring mounted case that contains a tent, tarp and motorcycle cover. The case will universally fit a tent of the user’s choice (3rd party
manufacturer such as REI, MEC, etc). The case also contains a tarp (extra fly sheet) that is detachable, as well as a motorcycle cover. The case is mounted to
a sub frame and is easily removed from the sub frame when it is not needed. The sub frame can stay mounted but can also be unbolted and removed easily.
This allows Haven Rig to use motorcycle specific sub frames and a universal sized fairing case.
Light up your room with 'Lumio' pendant light inspired by seashells. This light fixture can be flat-packed inside a 11 x 17 envelope to improve the efficiency of the whole distribution process. Using air-craft plywood, each piece has been laser cut and bent in tension to form an organic shape.
The project was to create mechanical movement/motion within Solidworks. Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci's flying machine, I set out to develop my own version of a rotary powered ornithopter.
Within the goals of developing a useful accessory for the Kenyan environment and using USB power we created the Tutasoma Bottle Light. It turns a used soda bottle into a light source bright enough for a room and can eliminate harmful bacteria in drinking water by using an ultraviolet LED.
The PROFILE CHAIR was our answer to everything we didn’t like about folding chairs. Folding chairs are shy, coming out only when extra seating is needed. They are ashamed of their cluttered leg regions, complicated actions, and cheap materials.
The PROFILE CHAIR folds on a single axis. This cuts down on intersecting lines and gives the chair a minimal profile that takes up less visual space when open, and less physical space when closed.
PROFILE CHAIR is a chair that you can use everyday. The powder coated steel and solid larch make it equally at home indoors and outdoors.
frame : powder coated steel
legs, feet, seat pan, and back rest : waxed larch
Flight Lamp is a substantial desk lamp with fine details and materials, that can be shipped deconstructed in an 11"x17" envelope. The shade is laser cut from Spruce aircraft plywood, the dowels are birch hardwood, and the legs are either solid polished Brass or Copper. The materials and finish have been meticulously chosen to match their possible patinas. When the brass oxidizes, it darkens and will compliment its all black counterparts. As for the copper legs, they will turn a minty green, complimenting the mint stained shade. Like most objects that are meant to transcend generations, components of the flight lamp can be removed easily and cared for. The legs are easily removed for polishing if one wants to retain the mirrored finish of the brass or copper.
Paradice is mp3 player amplifier. Many people repurpose ghettoblasters as mp3 player amps by using a tape adapter in the cassette player connected to their iphone. Paradice takes the amp and loud speakers from the ghettoblaster and does away with the un-needed casstte and tunner components. Paradice is a set of two speakers with an amp inside one and a space to conceal your mp3 player in the other. The two speakers are connected by a heavy duty cable that can be used as a handle or a way to connect paradice to other objects such as handlebars of a bike or the branch of a tree. Paradice 's speakers are kept safe from an active lifestyle by replaceable silicone covers.
The Junk Lamp is an exercise in sustainability martyrism. There are many cases of people creating objects out of discarded trash. In the final form, these objects tend to resemble just that, objects made of trash. The Junk Lamp attempts to create an attractive functional lamp from trash without showcasing its genealogy. Sustainability will never become common place if it is continually used as a selling point for a product. This is only a detourant to the people that need to accept it the most, the non believers.
Heavystock is a simple, clean, and sturdy low shelving system. Heavystock consists of simple soft form maple legs and steel shelves. The heavy stock shelving has a light paper- like profile but is quite the opposite. When constructed the shelving is weighty and rigid. The radius created from the bending of the steel panels is mirrored by the radiuses on the legs where the steel shelves meet the Maple legs, making the connections very subtle and almost illusional. Heavy stock keeps its light and simple form and also remains rigid without cross braces through the arrangement of the legs. By connecting the legs on the bias, there is no need for braces since any twisting is counter acted by the adjacent legs.
