I’m still not sure exactly what I will be making for the final project in this class. However, I’ve been fascinated with modular design over the past couple of months. Modular design breaks down a design into it’s many parts and emphasizes the users specific needs. It’s modeled around making scalable and reusable modules. I think this is a very interesting and different approach to design that I think deserves more attention. Most design is fixed, and only lets the designer make the choices. The main reason I want to apply this to my project is that as a college student, my needs are always changing and I want my project to be able to change along side them.
Since i’m unsure about what my final design will be, I wanted my inspiration to transcend all types of design. Modular design can be applied to furniture design, product design, art and even on a larger scale like architecture.
For my final piece I either want to make something super functional such as a desk organizer or shelves, or some sort of art piece for my room.
