A eye catching quirky product that is surprisingly functional! Go ahead and grab your Lego
When industrial material meets a clever manufacturing method the results are always extremely interesting, andnd this is certainly the case with these fantastic shelves made from cement. Initially formed inside a plastic bag, once removed gives the appearance of a soft fabric like material.
As part of my role as the Made in Brunel Managing Director, I ran first in a series of 4 Monday evening creative sessions aimed at developing Made in Brunel 2014.
The first weeks focus was on developing a Brand Identity to represent our year, and creating some themes which would gives us the best grounds of marketing Brunel Graduates to the Design industry.
A video of the event is coming soon!
After an amazing summer working abroad in Turkey, getting stuck back into design studio work has been a big change for sure. But starting on some fascinating briefs with a solid creative team is always a refreshing experience.
I am back in London and loving the city life once again. Seeing friends, family and colleagues who I haven’t spent time with for the last 18 months is great; but just being back in the UK’s capital is a welcome change to the small village of Delft where I lived last year.
My major project brief which I will be working on for the next 8 months.
Last day working at this awesome #beach! London is going to be a big change! (at Aspat Beach)

I am currently abroad in Turkey working as a Sailing Instructor so won’t be posting up much. But keep an eye out on my Instagram Feed to see what I am up to.
A great video detailing what Industrial Design actually is
The Stair-Rover is a fascinating new project on Kickstarter and I truly believe it could revolutionise transport around cities. I am a keen cyclist and use mike single speed bike most days for transport to and from my university campus in London, however I am also an avid longboarder. I switch between these modes of transport mainly dependant on weather and distance, but always prefer using my custom made longboard when I can.
This is not just because I love the feeling of using something you have crafted yourself, but also the amazing free flowing feeling longboarding gives. Cycling makes you feel so detached to the road whereas boarding truly is the least amount of equipment you need to travel around a city. Longboarding gives you the freedom to grab your board jump on and off the train, then skate to your final destination; and also gets rid of the worry about your bike being stolen as you always keep it with you.
Of course until now stairs have always been an issue, and commuting through London nearly always throws a stair set in my way. But with the Stair-Rover these are no longer a problem so I really do hope you will back the idea on Kickstarter, just as I have done, and start exploring your city in new ways!
A great piece of furniture design by Daniel Liss - a design student from Edinburgh. I think this truly epitomises how furniture is used now-a-days as most tables for multiple situations and need to adapt to them well. Table for two is clearly focussed on creating a product for a small apartment where a young professional couple lives, however I think this could work well in a variety of situations such as in libraries, cafe’s and design studios. All in all I think it is a great piece of work!
