Elizabeth Gomez — Privacy Screen for Kids

PROJECT STATEMENT:

“Kneel and Peek” is a privacy screen for kids that its intent is to create a playful environment. The child in once side of the screen could walk, kneel and lay down and peek to see what is at the other side of the screen. Creating a similar action like hide and seek. At the other side of the screen the joinery of the components create a grid. In this area kids can place their toys and used this is as a display area. Creating this display the kids will know what toys they have or what could they play with while peeking  through the privacy screen.

The wall is created by two set of components. One component creating a fold horizontally and the other creating a fold vertically. The variation consists on the extension of the components and the extension of the joint connector. The other variation consist on the number of components on the rows and columns of the wall. With different variation the wall could create the right about of privacy for the child that peeks through it.

Elizabeth Gomez — Product Families

PROJECT STATEMENT:

For this project I took inspiration in Coral Reefs,  observing their organic shape and color I created 5 product families that will be use as stationary table objects. Looking at precedent and examples I found that this geometry is known as a gyroid, within a bounding box full of points, spheres are creating depending of the amount of points and the expansion of spheres, which creates an intersection and later the full geometry.

The various possibilities of the object are determined by 4 sliders: X value,  Y value,  Z value and density. The XYZ value showcase the different height or length of the parameter, the density shows is the number of points (spheres) that are within the bounding box. They depend on each other, if the slider value is changed the density slider has to change also.
