Continuing this exploration into materials and form, I wanted to apply this research to an outcome which served a function. Throughout this research I found patterns which induce sound amplification. I wanted to use this research to create an object which produces sound and shows the direct relationship between form and function. This research combined with the previous works explores a diverse range of natural forms and structures that can inform our development of products efficiently.
I have managed the process of experimentation and resolved this exploration into outcomes that reflects my ideologies on using nature as a basis for design. The beauty of nature is that it takes away everything that’s not needed, what you see is pure function and this purity has a sense of beauty that we should try and mimic. These Images document the final outcomes of a lengthy design process with quick development of form and structure through experimentation with materials and processes.
