believe that a product should be designed to meet with the consumers needs
or specifications. My work i feel has done this, by targeting the issues
of space and the lack of it within the domestic home, with each piece
utilising a space that is generally neglected or adhering to the space
available, therefore being more efficient.
'Efficiency' has only been a small part of the criteria my work has followed,
'Beauty Through Function' and 'Form' have also changed the way i perceive
and address design, concerning me with the aesthetic and purposeful values
of a design and whether it meets the needs and desires of the average
user, with great emphasis on utility.
21st century 'green' and 'sustainable' architecture paved the ideal point
of reference, directing my work to have organic form and simplicity. Nature
meanwhile has stood firmly as the utility of the pieces, enforcing a symbolic
reminder of nature and growth and the importance of our environment.
