Having decided that I need to focus more on a ‘traditional’ bench form and work on designing the interactions around this, I have produced some more renders. In particular, I have been looking at how I could make this form my own through the manipulation of the slats to accommodate the interactive features. As you may see, some are fairly simple, while a few look at the more extreme things possibilities.
Here are a selection of simple renders I have produced to help find a direction for how the bench should look. They investigate different aesthetics, including how a variety of materials could be used and locations of the various features.
As part of the PLAY hand-in, we were to produce a visualisation of what we envisage our end product to look like. It isn’t necessarily the final form, but it is the building block on which we will refine and detail the design.
Here you can see the 3D models I have produced using Solidworks. They were rendered with Photoworks.
