Design Exercise

Two week project from Introduction to Product Development. Create a mood board, then make a functional lamp using design elements from the mood board. Aside from functioning lamp components, final project may only include one additional material.

Week 1:  Create a mood board. Week  2: Design and create a functional lamp based on above mood board. Aside from the working lamp components, project must be made of one material.  
Cardboard embodies the feel and texture of my mood board. It can be light, dark, heavy, soft. I soaked many pieces in bleach overnight. Air drying some pieces and heat-drying others, to create different textures and tones. 
form study, arranging and rearranging. 
final product: a functional lamp which reflects design elements from the original mood board: repetition of form, smooth and rough.
