The author

Relatively new to the world of creativity and design. When I graduated school in 2006, I studied Tourism and Sustainable Development. Over the following years I travelled across Asia, United States, South America and Central America. I found that I was inexplicitly drawn the to world of colour, textiles and design (particularly in Nicaragua, Peru and Bolivia). In 2017, I decided to move to Melbourne (from WA) and learnt skills in furniture upholstery and completed a CertIV in Interior Design. During this time I discovered that my passion is within conceptual design development, photography, visual communication and marketing. I hope to study Graphic Design and offer graphic, web design and digital marketing services to start-ups in the field of sustainable products and services (fashion, interiors and local tourism). I'm still yet to find my "tribe" in Melbourne so I'm looking forward to seeing what the next few years bring :)

Project details

Overview

For this project I had to create an interior lighting solution. I designed an interior pendant with a raw and flavoursome aesthetic. With the increase in apartment living, and subsequent decrease in outdoor yard space, I wanted to create a light that would encourage apartment dwellers to get back in touch with nature and back to the joys of home cooking. The pendant (in theory)operates with a dual lighting function- the top LED light mimics sunlight to nurture the herb planted below it. The lower LED light provides task lighting to the kitchen work space. The herb fronds actively shield the upper LED, which redirects and reflects the light, in turn creating drama and interest, as well as a unique illumination. I then built a 3D apartment to hang the lights in. My aim was to create a homey, intimate space that was well balanced and harmonious. I drew inspiration from current trends including biophilic design, organic shapes and "retreat style" living.
