This is my final 1:20 scales model for the Interior Spaces project. I found it very time consuming to complete but I really enjoyed it and it is something that I got really focused on. Overall this final outcome I am very pleased with and I believe it has turned out very well.
This is the Mirror Bar in Amsterdam. I wanted to explore something that would come as a surprise to the viewers- walking in a space and suddenly seeing double/ triple everything would do that. Although this is unique in its own way- it has been done before. Taking aspects from this initial thought and developing it would be my next step.
The interieur awards
An art design competition since 1972. A design event.
Cutting- edge concept for a bar. Surprise and enchant visitors and exhibitors. A place designed to meet colleagues and friends. Functioning as an all day long location- serving simple foods and drinks throughout.
Develop a strong theme and vision for the space.
Centrally located in one of the exhibition halls- measured between 80 and 120m squared. A minimum of 50 seats.
To start, I am planning on doing research about all aspects of the brief and the competition and also research my initial thoughts and ideas for the bar- things that spring to mind, just to build up a body of design ideas and what the bar may potentially end up looking like.
This is the base for my lighting design- Pine, cut to scale with three individual holes cut out for the light fittings. This will then be where the rectangle cover fits over it with boxes then attached all around it.
A small selection of the lights shown in Artemide- Probably my favourites to look at! The top right is white acrylic and I think it looks really effective because its more of a gentle light. For the bottom right, this is more of a funky light to add something to a room.
This is one of the shops I visited when conducting my lighting research and it was filled with amazing lights that gave me so much inspiration! From ambient lights to pendant lights to crazy lights that I didn’t think were possible to simple lights- there was a whole range. I found this research trip really helpful and it helped me figure out a few of my own designs that I wanted to try out.
Develop a design for a cardboard chair that I will make in a small design team.
The aims of this project
- research, design and produce and sear with a backrest using corrugated cardboard.
- examine relevant examples of furniture design and related structures.
- generate and develop ideas in response to the brief
- manipulate the selected material producing a strong structure
- encourage students to think innovatively in terms of aesthetics, function and contruction
- think innovatively and creatively whilst working within the strict parameters and boundaries imposed by the brief
- successfully work in small design teams
I’m going to begin by researching the range of styles that have been explored and designed- to get inspiration and design ideas to develop and work on
