Woli - My entry to the first MUJI award in 2006. Essentially a flat-folding, cardboard waste-paper basket or storage solution.

A derivative of this idea was implemented as combined disposable packaging and waste management solution for a local arts event
Pollard - Flatpack storage unit utilising a uniquely formulated Chestnut lattice board.

Pollard is created from sustainable coppice woodland with the aid of a CNC machine yet manages to display the historical identity of West Sussex and the craft value of wood as a material.
Drinks All Round - Reconfiguring the force application on a bottle opener creates this simple, ergonomic kitchen tool that keeps the wrist in a neutral position during operation.

Arguably fun aesthetic given to the result of a serious inclusive design brief.

Food Prep Board - Food preparation product that makes all of the essential processes accessible to people with limited upper limb mobility.

Created to rival existing products which all adhere to the unfortunate clinical aesthetic of disability products.
Food Prep Board - Visual instructions designed to allow the entire product and subsequent user experience break international boundaries.

Images shows the front and rear of a single A3 card sheet.
X-Flow Process Snapshot - Credit to Donn Koh for the mapping technique used. The project was incredibly successful as a result.
X-Flow HCS - X-Flow (Cross-Flow) is a dual-axis hydraulic brake lever for off-road mountain biking. The lever was initially designed to cater to amputees and those with upper-limb disabilities, a surprising number of which participate in adventure sports.

X-Flow allows both independent and simultaneous control of both brakes from one ambidextrous lever attachment. I am currently working on a Disc compatible version and on which looks a little more appealing!

  • I still have real trouble with concise and effective communication of my designs a lot of the time. My problem is that I like to ramble on for paragraphs where projects are best presented with snappy captions and explanatory imAges. I'll get the hang of it one day! Thanks again for your comments.

  • The Shimano Dual Control is mainly concerned with gear shifting and each lever only operates one brake. The purpose of my lever is to have complete control of both brakes from just one side and is primarily intended for users with upper-limb disabilities. Also, I found that the upward motion of the shimano lever is a bit tricky, especially for my intended user group. Thanks for your comment, I hope this answers your question.
