Developing inspiration board to quickly deliver ideas
Before ideating our thoughts on sketches, we categorized several design directions to prevent us from getting lost or overlapping ideas while sketching. Several phases of moodboards were developed as we worked through the ideation phase and ideas became more clear and detailed.
Direction 2 / White & Pure
Direction 3 / Translucent
Direction 5 / Warm & Light
Quick Concept Modeling & Evaluation
Below are some quick modeling concepts to visualize our ideas in 3D that we found during the sketch phase. From this phase, we again narrowed down to 4 concepts to present and propose to our client.
Diversifying Concept Direction
Following are materials presented to LAVO on our first meeting. During this phase we focused on presenting various and wide design directions and clearly visualizing how these concepts may look. During this meeting, we were able to narrow down 2 concepts and we onto prototype verification phase after few adjustments.
Concept 1 / Thin Plate
Concept 2 / Transparent Metallic
Concept 3 / Translucent Gloss
Concept 4 / Mood Lamp
Creating Prototypes to Evaluate Design
Before requesting for a 1:1 scale hard-type prototype, we went made various soft mock-ups using blue foam and 3D printer to confirm our designs. After we verifying our concepts using these simple materials, we requested for a hard-type prototype to a prototyping factory to verify and confirm our designs in more details.
