Living Lab Conference
Design refinement and fabrication
The Living Lab is a partnership between Massey University and local government exploring the sustainable and social aspects of life in New Zealand. To coincide with the hosting of the third Living Lab symposium the Wellington School of Design created a set of versatile furniture drawing on the themes of the movement.
The furniture and exhibition project was a collaboration with other design faculty and students at Massey University. I was involved in the refinement, prototyping, detailing, and fabrication of six tables and six benches using the distinct angular design aesthetic developed for the conference event.
The furniture pieces are built from layered 12mm pine plywood recycled from previous exhibitions, and factory reject aluminium and polypropylene composite sheet. The tables incorporate iPads secured within the folded angular surfaces to allow attendees to access displayed conference websites and information.
