I’m still working on figuring out what aesthetic I want to use for my project. I have the idea but I’ve toyed with a few different aesthetics to actually incorporate. I plan on doing a sleek design with dark stained wood and polished metal, so it may turn out to be a somewhat minimalist design.
Above are two sketches I did of my design in different aesthetics, both featuring the spinning rim and the central iris mechanism. The one one the left is more of the minimalist design I think I might go with, while on the right is a more textured design with Eastern influences. In reality, I’ll probably pull from several different aesthetics to create an eclectic and polished look on my final design.
