Come Fly With Me - Already at the prototype stage, this design was exhibited at the Singapore International Furniture Fair. I thought it was really fun to sit on. Really. I don't know about you, but it is something you have to try to know what I am talking about.
The design has yet to be realised as a mass produced item, and is only available as a one-off prototype
Come Fly With Me poster - The designs are companion pieces to my original work. The smaller petal shaped pieces are designed to be made from PP or Fibreglass, to serve as a 'shell' for seat cushions. It is meant to be a playful single version of the original. The low table comes with a mirror table top and spins over the chair/bed. I intend to use it as a table for my laptop or food and drinks or something.
No prototype of the "cushion shells" and spinning table has been produced as yet.
The Grotto Dreambath - Open Bathroom Concept with Modular units. Make the most of a brief moment's respite in the bath with this system.
This design is purely conceptual. No model was ever made.
A Blade Of Grass - This fibreglass chair was developed around the theme 'Green'. I was interested in trying to capture what the color means emotionally, without the use of any color. For me, green is lively in a strong yet subtle way. To capture the vitality and life I expressed it through the play with surface and line details. Green was also a relaxing color for me, hence the backing of the chair was made tall to support the head, and curved inward to create a 'hammock' feel that is comforting and relaxing.
Rendered Sketch - Here I use experimental sketches to communicate an energetic emotion, with the successful ones eventually serving as a starting point for a full scale (car) interior concept.
This was the starting point of a collaborative project (in NUS) with BMW DesignWorks.
Interior image for ZEST - A selection of images for the interior model. This was a pair work with my studio mate Priscilla Pan.
Kuroi coffee table - This round, pebble-shaped coffee table was down as part of a design module with Swarovski Crystals. Team members involved in the design are Jane Hia and Loh Chia Shee. The table has a free articulating ebony table top that swings out to reveal a storage space in the table. For all the items such as magazines, papers, snacks, etc. Embeded in a graphic pattern are very small Swarovski crystals that appears to creep out from the storage area, enticing users to explore it.
Hairtech - This hairdryer was designed for the male market. The intent was to simplify the function, while keeping a powerful, toy-ish, almost weapon like aesthetic. Sleek and simple is the look I was aiming for. Whether it was successful, well, is up to you to decide!
This design is purely conceptual, no prototype was made.
Modern Symbols - This set of Jewelry (Ear Studs, Ring/Pendent, Cuff links, Tie Clip) was part of a school design project for RISIS Singapore. The designs were derived from latticework found on traditional carved windows. A little cheesy ( Yes i know...), I tried to have the jewels act as symbolic 'windows' to the soul, just to carry on the RISIS 'tradition' of having 'a story' behind every single product.
A model of the pendent and ear studs are available.
eBigPigture - Series of polymer clay figurines for the NTU Visual Arts Club Bazaar. All the thumbsize piggies figurines are handmade and unique. A total of over 80 figurines of different designs were produced and sold.
Red Table - This piece of furniture was design to be convertible into a makeshift mahjong table. For games during the Lunar New Year.
This design is purely conceptual. No prototype has yet to be made.
