When I began brainstorming ideas for the main project, the dynamic requirement had me stuck. My immediate thought was that I would have to integrate some sort of motor or complex mechanism that would make my project dynamic. So I googled the definition, which brought me to the following: “characterized by constant change, activity, or progress”. This made me feel a lot better.
So I went to the topic I love the most– furniture. In the beginning, Professor Hertzberg said that furniture would be an example of a non-dynamic object. However, upon seeing the more broad definition of dynamic, I think I could make some dynamic furniture.
My inspiration for my main project comes from collapsible/customizable furniture. Below are some examples:
These pieces of furniture are dynamic in that they have moving components. They also increase the user interaction with the product by its collapsible nature.
I’m recently getting into the idea of minimalism in all aspects of my life–not just in my designs. So this is a great way to create something that will have the minimalist aesthetic I tend to gravitate towards as well as minimize the space our furniture takes in our homes for easy storage and versatility of open areas.
My plan right now is to make a collapsible/customizable bookcase or shelving unit. I own a lot of books and plant. And I’ll love to be able to have somewhere to put them, but also customize the size of each compartment to accommodate my needs.
