Innovation Design Engineering


Lumifold


My final project is a process that plays with light to create objects from 2D to 3D. With masks, or generally speaking shadows, I intend to engage customers and designers to physically interact with the products at the manufacturing stage. It is inspired by photography and shadow puppetry.

My focus is on creating simple innovations in everyday objects such as furniture, domestic equipment, sports and recreational gear. Im also interested in the exploration of new boundaries of materials and manufacturing processes.
