PRODUCT DESIGN | Infusion
Our product design instructor, Bill Burnett of Stanford University, emphasized the importance of learning about other designers and adapting their styles. Through the pen project, we initially designed three pens, inspired by three different designers, and eventually focused on iterating one design to best capture the designer's intent.
Materials: Modulan, sand paper, and spray paint
Time: 3 weeks
My project revolves around a pen inspired by designer Philippe Starck,
who emphasizes animation, fluidity, and intergalactic elements. While the
concept sketches involve a multitude of curves, I decided to follow the most
simple design as it captures a sort of elegance and streamlined motion of
Starck's other works. Please see below for my design process.
