I have been looking at different materials to make my lamp out of that wouldn’t be as hazardous. So far I have liked the look of wood but I would have to make sure it is safe because the light is inset in the wood. But besides wood I was thinking about different kinds of plastics and non conductive metals or a glass could work because light bulbs are made of glass. Above are pictures of the 4 different types of materials listed above but I have a feeling I will go with wood.

I have finalized my ideas down to these three lamp designs. I liked the simple geometric shapes and that the lamp directs the light down to the top of the surface. I was also thinking about adding a clamp to the bottom of the lamp so you could clap it onto any surface that you would need light for. But without the clamp you would be able to move the lamp around on different sides and can shine the light whatever way you would want. I would also like the lamp to be cordless but I haven’t figured that part out yet.

This would be awesome to have had in my dorm or if it was bigger my apartment! It is a stackable fridge and each section can be someone else’s so you would never have to share your fridge room and wouldn’t have to worry about whose food is who. Not to mention it is nicely designed with the smooth edges and fun colors.  http://www.ohgizmo.com/2008/09/13/electrolux-flatshare-fridge/

These are just simple boxes but they are so eloquently designed and so simple and beautiful. They can be stacked next together and the color choices are so soft that they compliment the wood choice. http://www.eviegroup.com/hex.htm

These are just simple cement pots but they are actually lamps that you can add these beautifully designed metal tops to and the tops make the lamps so much more interesting and creative and gives the lamp the pop of color it needs as well as visual aesthetics. http://www.3dotscollective.com/new-gallery-5/

This is a super simple idea but it solves an easy problem which makes it creative to me. It is just a spray top with a juicer bottom and you stick it into a lemon or other food choice and it sprays the juice out of the actual food. https://www.pinterest.com

Weekly Project #2 (Design a Clock)

10567329_10205233075858751_1115476358_n 11063266_10205233075938753_1203342878_nObjective: Design a clock that would map reading/using a clock hard, and make a clock that would make keeping time easier.

Solutions:

Difficult clock ideas:

  • No numbers
  • No hands to point to time
  • Small hands on clock
  • Hands on clock be the same size
  • Make clock randomly make noises and not specific times
  • Make numbers super small s you are unable to see the numbers
  • Make numbers on clock go original way and the hands go the opposite way
  • Make clock super small so you can’t read it

Easy clock ideas:

  • Make hands different colors
  • Make hands different thicknesses
  • Make clock expel different scents at different hours or events
  • Make clock make noises at different hours or events
  • Make clock say the hours for people with bad vision
  • Makes watch  squeeze wrist tighter at different hours or events
  • Make watch vibrate every hour to specify the hour or event for people with bad vision

Design: I designed a difficult clock that the numbers and hands are opposite making it harder to read and take awhile for the user to figure out the time. For the easy to read clock/watch I made the watch vibrate at events or hours and made the hands on it different colors and thicknesses to make it easy and fast to look at and find the time.

So for the past week I have been very busy with multiple projects and quizzes but I have been drawing more lamps and coming up with different designs. But I have also been looking at already existing lamps as well that have the same look that I want my lamp to have. I have also looked at different geometric shapes that I want my lamp to have so I have a lot to go off for my lamp design. Above are some geometric shapes I have drawn that I found interesting and possibly want to include in my lamp. As well as some geometric lamps that I discovered while researching that have inspired some of my design choices.
