Simona Perli – Privacy Screens for Kids: The Nest

PROJECT STATEMENT:

The Nest is a privacy screen that curves in order to give the child the feeling of a hug, or safety. The limited visibility from the child’s view gives them some visual continuity, but mostly privacy, while the parents can watch their child from the other side of the screen that allows for much more visibility and security.

The screen is composed of components that connection through notch and lap joints. The variations have to do with height, depth, extension, and division of the grid.

SIMONA PERLI FINAL PRODUCT FAMILIES

PROJECT STATEMENT:

My project has to do with the directional diffusion of light. I’ve seen directional light and diffused light fixtures as separate entities in the past, so I thought that it might be interesting to combine the two concepts. I have designed pendant lamp shades as well as candle light diffusers.

There were three main parameters that I worked with: height, width, and size of the holes based on the variance in width of the triangular quads. This allowed for a lot of interesting variation. Another big component was the attractor point used. This is what caused the holes to be larger in some areas and smaller in others, in order to diffuse/direct the light.
