Design Fundamentals I | Instructor: Lisa Hsieh | Fall 2014

Almost all objects have a standard application associated with them. For this reason, it becomes difficult to view a utensil beyond its axiomatic purpose. 

In this project, experimentation with a selected household tool culminated in the creation of a wearable design. Utilizing the various components of an ice cream scoop to manipulate different materials led to the discovery that the extrusion of the spoon could mold strips of aluminum foil into rings. The indentations made the aluminum more durable and acted as connecting points. This method of joinery formed the final product.

The design completely encircles the torso of the wearer while the ice cream scoop is the essential element that completes it.
