Jet Ski Speed Form - This project incorporate speed and fast lines. I choose to look for inspiration from motorcycles and boat hull designs . The result was a design of a speed form that looks fast with aggressive lines, but still is easy to manufacture.
Cobra Light - This project was all about lighting and natural elements found all around us. I choose to look at snakes and how they move. The lamp is made up of three different sections that when moved change the angle of light.
