A Portable Speaker for KAKKOII
The portable speaker is a nomad product within our urban environment; it hasn’t really found a place in our home or on the go. The SoundStation aims to give the portable speaker a place in our immediate environments by replacing the need for bulky desktop speakers. The SoundStation has two main functions: to charge the speaker and to amplify and enhance sound quality through sound reflection. It is portable, but easily finds a home near “power sources” that are more permanently fixed, thus replacing those bulky desktop speakers. Its minimal design is intuitive and easy to use, as well as practical for when you’re on the go (USB storage).
Re-FEED_Urban Waste Project_
Sustainable Waste Management
Do you ever feel bad about the food waste you throw out?
The Re-Feed is your own personal food waste processor that turns organic waste into instant liquid fertilizer for your plants. Inspired by lacking food waste recycling infrastructures in flats and high-rise housing in central London, the Re-Feed provides a simple alternative to sending waste to landfill or composting.
It's appearance was inspired by the psychological phenomenon called the Tamagotchi effect, which focuses on evoking emotion responses while using an object or completing everyday tasks. In this case, feeding the Re-Feed creates positive feelings by allowing the user to fulfil their responsibility towards the plant in a sustainable way.
The Re-Feed can be moved to feed any plants in your living space due to its rechargeable battery.

Material Experimentation & Sustainable Design
Material innovation is a rapidly growing trend in the design industry. This project explores how material experimentation can be the trigger for a design. Altering a materials characteristics can transform it to create a new use and thereby give it higher value.
This bench is made by weaving hemp rope around a cylindrical mould in a repeated pattern. It is then set with bio-resin. This gives the bench an almost magical aura as the rope, usually soft and flexible, takes on a rigid, solid form.

Branding & Innovation
The aim of this client project was to design a product that could re-invent the use and perception of the beloved Heinz Baked Beanz brand. Heinz Baked Beanz Concentrated Puree gives your meals the intense baked bean flavour, in a smooth form that doesn’t disrupt the texture of the dish. Each individual pot contains the correct amount needed for one portion to simplify the cooking process.
The inner face of the packaging is printed with individual recipe ideas for the consumer to try.
