Alexander Lamp celebrates colour, technology and idiosyncracy. It uses an LED ring to bounce a pink-tinted light off a yellow reflector. The result is an effect of warm hues, shadows and silhouettes. It was designed with the goal of using LED technology to create a sense of atmospheric warmth in an unexpected way. An emphasis was placed on the tactile quality and experience of the on/off interaction. There is a deliberate fading effect when the light is turned on and off that is meant to change our relationship with the often-abrupt LED technology.
The lamp is constructed with easy disassembly in mind. Materials are labeled according to how they should be disposed of. Materials include PHA compostable bioplastic and annodized recycled aluminium.
Crystal Table, 2017
Crystal Table's design was inspired by the molecular structures of crystals. The brief of the project was to build a coffee table based on natural phenomena. The network of irregularly placed bar segments reveals itself differently from every angle. The glass top allows for the molecule-inspired structure to be peered at from above. It was built with welded steel bar-stock, and 1-inch thick tempered glass. Crystal Table was selected to be displayed at Concordia University's display at SIDIM (Salon International du Design Interieur de Montreal).
Abstractus is a concept for a children's puzzle toy. The goal of the design is to encourage play and stimulate creativity by removing the rigidity and regulation of traditional puzzles. It has a dual use. It can function as a traditional puzzle, whereby the user attempts to figure out the way to fit the pieces together in a specific, predetermined fashion. ALternatively, the pieces can be used as building blocks. Here, the child would have the opportunity to use the pieces of the puzzle to construct abstract structures in an imaginative and playful way. Abstracticus aims reinterpret the concept of a puzzle by playing with the concepts of structure and disorganization. The puzzle stimulates the intellectual, problem-solving side of the brain, while also encouraging the child to experiment with colours, shapes, building and aesthetic.
Concept for a toothbrush design where the bristles can be replaced but the handle is kept for a lifetime. This design is meant as an eco-friendly alternative to the unslightly disposable models that are commonplace. Having the body of the toothbrush be non-disposable allows for a sturdier and more elegant design, making the eco-friendly option the more attractive one as well.
