Glasses
  Developed as part of the course Moulding Glass Techniques.
 

This 5 glasses collection is my first approach to glass blowing. They are the final result of a 4 months course about glass moulding, which included kiln and glass blowing techniques.

 

 

 

  Enclosure
  Developed as part of the DIDECO project, Aalto University.

Enclosure development was part of the Dideco project, which took place at Aalto University in cooperation with 5 private companies and a research laboratory. We had the opportunity of improving services and products using new technologies, which ended up in an enclosure in this case.

The company required new designs for a classic and standard enclosure that has been produced over one decade. This new version has been thought from the industrial and manufacture point of view, where we wanted to emphasise in efficiency and simplicity in manufacture processes like assembling and injection.

During the design process, the enclosure was prototyped in different materials to bring the closest possible feeling to the final product. In its final version it was 3d printed in two different components using translucent and solid/ matte finishes.

Project participants: Marianne Huotari, Carolina Arevalo, Simon Örnberg, Jokke Katajamäki, Da-Woon Chung and Daniel Morales.

 

 

 

 

 

  Packaging design
  Developed as part of the DIDECO project, Aalto University.
 

Kuusamo packaging was a continue search for improving the current lure packaging solution by Kuusamo Finland. We worked in a team of six designers with different backgrounds. The process evolved over various packaging designs and the pictures above show the prototype of the final proposal with a simple and refreshed product looking.

  Mat design
  Developed as part of the DIDECO project, Aalto University.
 

Mat design is a challenge in technology and innovation. Through Dideco project students from Aalto University had the opportunity of working in cooperation with a well-known mat producer in Finland. We introduced temperature measure, light and heating systems into a new pattern design, looking for the best possible comfort of truck drivers. In this prototype we achieved the use of new technologies integrated to the current mat production. I addition the aim was to prototype the mat as closest as possible to the final product. So the use of 3d printed rubber was required and successfully implemented.

Project participants: Marianne Huotari, Carolina Arevalo, Simon Örnberg, Jokke Katajamäki, Da-Woon Chung and Daniel Morales.

 

 

 

  The Lilies - Jardines de Paz
  In cooperation with Jardines de Paz Cemetery, Bogotá Colombia.

The current funeral services in Colombia are shaped by urban, ecological and religious points of view. People place sentimental objects on the graves of their loved ones and seek rituals that allow them to change and personalise the system.

"The Lilies" challenges tradition by prioritising people's personal rituals and feelings. It is a system that allows you to commemorate your loved ones in a flexible way and create your own rituals.

First stage: You enter the cemetery, a temple garden, planted with natural flowers and "Lilies". You find your "Lily" in the garden. It represents your deceased loved one and contains their ashes. The petals of the "Lily" are inscribed with a name, date of birth and death, and a personal message.

Second stage: You take your "Lily" and look for privacy: rituals need a special place. Platforms around the cemetery, sub-temples, formed by different modules create varied environments to fit your mood. Do you want to cry? Sing? Or even dance with your "Lily"?
When you have completed your rituals, place the "Lily" back in the garden where it will remain until you return.

Materials:
Lily: injection-moulded polypropylene (PP) and aluminium.
Sub temples: stainless-steel tubing and teak.

Special thanks to Carlos Muñoz who strongly helped during the ideation and prototyping process.

 

 

 

 

  Anacleta
  Developed for city planning, Bogotá Colombia. In cooperation with Rafael Gomez.

Anacleta is a sustainable transport system to support and expand Bogotá's mass transit, Transmilenio. It is used for the last leg of your journey, from bus stop to office and would be located at Transmilenio stations around the city.

When you have finished your journey with the Anacleta, park it in the station so others can use it.

Materials: Injection-moulded polypropylene, co-injected sandwich of stain-resistant Teflon.
Structure: aluminium or chromium-plated steel.
