This lamp is a modern take on the Himalayan salt lamp, taking advantage of convection currents drawing warm air up through the salt to deliver you cleaner, more dry air.
The lamp can be used without the timber sleeve to give off a brighter light or the sleeve may be placed over the bulb to give a softer light. The lamp set comes packaged in a pine box, the base is made from copper and concrete, and the sleeve turned out of kwila.
The Gnarly Mahi
1:15 scale of a 12m fishing boat
Designers: Jack Anderson, Louis Ferrns, Krishaan Gopal
The Gnarly Mahi represents the next step in Luxury Fishing. From the cantilevered flybridge to the unique and aggressive styling, the Gnarly Mahi offers a fishing experience like no other.
The Cantilevered Flybridge can accomodate up to 3 people as well as a secondary driving console. The 2 tone material choice with silver accents pays tribute to the classic styling of a fishing boat, yet in a much more refined and modern aggressive approach.
The Gnarly Mahi features a below deck level equipped with a shower, kitchen, dining/ leisure area making it idea for the perfect day trip with friends or family. Atop the front deck is a leather futon area for peaceful relaxation while centre stage at the back of the boat is the game chair. Located under each of the chairs in the centre console is a storage area.
Shot! Dart Flight
This project was a live brief, working with the New Zealand company, Shot! (Puma Darts). This dart flight has the same surface area as a standard dart flight, so fly's the same. However, this design features a smaller profile than standard darts, stopping it from blocking the player's other darts, making close grouping easier.
Hammer and Tape
This brief asked for the design and build of a prototype of an analogue tool and a digital tool.
Designers : Jack Anderson, Cam Monteith, Nathan Aarts
The concept for the tape came from my summer work. I work as a building hand for a large building company on residential and commercial properties. I would always have the older builders yelling maths problems at me to work out! This inspired the idea of a tape measure and calculator all in one.
The product allows the user to take a measurement and then add, subtract, multiply or divide from a number you manually input or from a second measurement that you take. The user can store up to four measurements on the display to take to the saw with them, to save scribbling them down on a scrap of timber (as is commonly done on building sites).
The inspiration for this hammer came from countless hours spent with my grandfather in his shed building and inventing things. I noticed as he got older some tasks became a lot harder for him, for example pulling out nails - a basic task for a fit young person but becoming more challenging as you age. A standard hammer no longer provides enough leverage to pull nails.
The unique feature of this hammer is the way it folds out and doubles the length making it substantially easier to pull nails out. When done pulling out nails the user can pull the hammer straight and fold it around. No fiddly latches or catches. This is due to the simple but effective design of the hinge.
