SMART LIDS DESIGN focuses in developing practical designs based on functionality not aesthetics. The tear-off lid allows the user to seal again the torn area after been opened. By having a flap that double-backs the sipping area, it ensures the user that no coffee will be spilled.
By using vacuum forming as the manufacturing method, the production of this product is minimal in its steps. A 3D printed male mold will ensure that the tolerances of the lid will be as exact as possible.
TRIPLAY is a modular playground system that functions as a platform to connect parents with their children through play. By its design, it provides a common ground that allows adults to be equally engaged with the space on which their kids play.
The objective of the project was to develop a playground design by using the capabilities that rotational molding manufacturing has (large volumes & scale, lightweight, hollow unibody, outdoor resistant). TRIPLAY enables the user to create structures by joining rotomolded triangles through very simple connective plastic clips.
The system comes in two versions, one large scale for public spaces that function as a play space, and one medium scale that adapts for limited-space private environments.
CUYABENO BOWL is a product that bridges the gap between indigenous gastronomic traditions with contemporary western values. The design imitates the process surrounding yucca, or mandioca, from its collecting, grating, filtrating, to the act of cooking.
By using metal spinning as the manufacturing method, a simple, true design can be achieved with minimum steps of production.
