In this project I collaborated with an Interior Design student to design and model a concept for a bicycle market stall. I crafted the model from soft ply, with sliding mechanisms and hinges. We interviewed the retailer, The Social Studio, to help them articulate the core requirements of the project. With personal experience in markets, I pointed out weather and security as major concerns. Quick prototypes resulted in a design that elegantly satisfied these constraints, was eye catching and practical.
In the next phase of design refinement and build, I exercised my sewing skills to design and make a shade cloth for the stall that matched with the style of the stand whilst being practical in the weather and easy to set up and dismantle. This project continued long after the semester ended and The Social Studio were thrilled with the outcome. The bike satisfies their needs, clearly represents the brand and is user friendly.
