HANIMEX IEF 2 - technical sketches


An exploded view of the HANIMEX IEF 2, a 110 film roll camera, I disassembled. Creating a technical drawing of the original object, before dissecting it and drawing the individual parts. Following which mentaly piecing everything together in an exploded view and drawing it onto a piece of paper, using pencil and ink

Tea Cup - process & CAD


The design process for a tea cup with a spiral in the middle to allow it to rest nicely on our fingers. Starting from a rough sketch, this project was used to explore on the ways of prototyping at hope, using both blue-foam and plasticine. This process was then aided in a CAD modeling of the object and a 3D print for a test print and finally a render of the final product, created by double lined glass to insulate the heat from the hot drink to the fingers. Two exploration of materials was rendered, one that is made of only glass while the other had silver lined in the inner lining of the cup.

ONION Lamp - preliminary sketches and cardboard prototype


The preliminary sketches and measurements for the ONION Lamp. Designed with the type of construction in mind, the ONION Lamp, is designed to be made up of multiple laser cut materials. Thus with the design mainly revolving around the centre with an incremental decrease in height to represent and show flow within the Lamp itself. This cardboard prototype is to allow visualization of the possible final product and to finetune any discrepancy in the initial design.

ONION Lamp - product test and CAD


With the help of Juan Noguera (due to being at the opposite side of the globe), the ONION Lamp was cut and assembled out of Plywood. The Lamp design was also made in Fusion 360, allowing it to be rendered into 3 different kinds of wood, Oak, Walnut and Maple.

Fidget Toy


A fidget toy designed to be created using the CNC machine, this simple and classic design, is elegant and sophisticated to be used in both the home setting and the workplace. Designed to have tactile feedback from the grooves of the brass scroll wheel, the shape of the toy fits into the palm of the user comfortably while allowing sufficient space to spin and play with it subconsciously, as should all fidget toys.

Perspective Exercise


A series of perspective exercises to better understand the different perspectives from 1 point to 3 point perspective.

Memphis inspired stool - HAMburger


Jokingly and affectionately called the HAMburger stool due to its colour choice, this memphis inspired stool uses geometric shapes to create a visual harmony in the precise balance of the shapes placed on top of each other. In this image, are some previous ideation sketches on the left and a more finalised and detailed sketch with measurements on the right of the image.

Memphis inspired stool - HAMburger


Jokingly and affectionately called the HAMburger stool due to its colour choice, this memphis inspired stool uses geometric shapes to create a visual harmony in the precise balance of the shapes placed on top of each other. Using cardboard and styrofoam to create a prototype of the stool. It let to the CAD modeling of the stool, in Fusion 360, followed by printing it out and painting it with the help of Juan Noguera (due to being at the opposite side of the globe), and a complete rendering of the model with human figure for scale.

DRKW-MS 02 Tabletop Speaker


A speaker for every household, the MS 02, is the second in line of the DRKW series of table top items that gives you a no compromise audio quality for its size. With simplified

and intuitive control interfaces on the speaker itself, it allows quick and easy access to the most used interfaces. With an ambidextrous design for people all around, this is a speaker that will be well loved and used constantly. A timeless speaker that every household should have.

DRKW-LS 01 Tape Dispenser

Inspired by the Braun cylinder T2 Table Lighter design the DRKW-LS 01 is a tape dispenser created and designed to have multiple purposes, it challenges and changes the way we approach the usual usage of a tape dispenser, having to remove the tape vertically rather than horizontally. With the addition of the height and the material being made up of metal, the taller design gives it space for the hand to interact with the tearing of the tape. Furthermore, with the additional space that the design allows space at the bottom, it is sufficient for a housing space for a measuring tape for the ease of measurements. Thus making the LS 01 a good paper weight, an efficient tape dispenser with the inclusion of a measuring tape and a space to house it. Keeping multiple things within a small form factor. A three in one design, for every designers desk. The first in line of the DRKW series of table top items, the LS 01 is a new and improved take on the traditional tape dispenser, with an ambidextrous design and a measuring tape. It provides multiple uses in its compact size creating ease and cleanliness for an otherwise cluttered desk. Seamlessly housing a measuring tape for the ease of use, while being heavy enough to be a paper weight for your drafts. The LS 01 is a timeless tape dispenser that every designer should have.
