For this self initiated project, I decided to examine everyday household items both in terms of function and our relationship with them. I wanted to move away from the throwaway mentality we have towards electronics and create something that is simple, adaptable and more environmentally conscious.
I wanted to encourage users to fix or customise items as needed rather than simply throwing them away, so I ensured that all the parts are easily removable and replaceable. This not only extends the life of each object, creating a more sustainable design, but also helps foster a closer relationship between the user and the object. Adaptability lead to more environmental considerations with the core material being made from recycled HDPE
I chose a speaker and a clock - two objects often merely regarded in terms of their function - transforming them almost into beautiful objects. Driven by the idea of adaptability, I wanted to create an aesthetic that would fit comfortably within a space, while still retaining some character through colour and texture.
