The Glacier Bottle Opener
This project is inspired by north Atlantic glaciers and the animals that inhabit those places. With consideration to the form of human fingers and how objects are gripped, a functional and aesthetically pleasing product was created. Clay was used to produce several mock-ups and to gain a better understanding of the feel of the potential product. The process revealed potential issues with the design. Soon thereafter, a refined concept was chosen to move forward with.
The exploration of different forms and styles and how they might look/feel in the land as well as function as a product.
The most resolved concept was chosen to be developed further.
Clay was used to gain a better understanding of how the product will feel in the hand and to resolve any issues with the design before moving forward.
A final form was decided on and modelled in SolidWorks.
The SolidWorks file was printed.
