From the archives : Furniture Design

Furniture Design
I was looking through some old files on my computer, and I found this. In 2001, I completed my Bachelors degree in Design where, I designed, developed and created a furniture piece relating to my interest in product design.

It's always interesting to look back at my old designs to see how far I've come. After eight years of working in the advertising industry, well it's easy to say, my designs back then could all use a lot of work. I can admit, at that time, my graphic design skills were never any good. I was always better at making things with my hands and I loved to draw and paint. I've obviously come leaps and bounds since then, as I now make a living working as a graphic designer.

This project was based on the idea of furniture adding value to life, enhancing enjoyment on an everyday level. It not only challenges the traditional notion of furniture as a fixture in a room, but it challenges the way we look and act within a space, by its enduring sculptural quality. In a written brief, I wrote "I enjoy creating interesting objects or graphics for everyday living. To see someone enjoy my designs, to find them being excited by how it looks or feels, or to see them wondering how it was done, is the reason why I design." A philosophy I still use today!


Furniture Design



An extraordinary result after three years of endless creativity, late nights, stress and countless hours of study!
