For our first individual project we were assigned an object to design. This was out of three options, a child’s desk, a lawyers desk or an outdoor chef’s unit. We had to consider measurements, safety guidelines, materials, saleability as well as other factors. For the submission of the project we were required to produce a scale rendered model of the object, accurate and professional elevation, as well as a 1500 illustrated essay. Designing a child’s desk I wanted to create something which wasn’t tacky or made of child specific materials, such as plastic. I instead created an item of heritage, my target age range being age 8+. I combined the stlye of a traditional French school desk and 60’s design elements, evident for the legs.
