Designed to meet the needs of an electronic product able to be designed and manufactured within the year. Expose is a traditional Loudspeaker paired with new age digital technology. An obvious choice for fast turn around and easy manufacturing was 3d printing technology. The design exploration investigated the possibilities of 3d printing a loudspeaker with a multi material Printer able to replace many manual and costly processes with a controlled and digital response.

 Following on from the ' North Atlantic ' series of images ' Wild Atlantic ' Documents the wildlife seen on a recent Transatlantic sailing voyage. Everyday offered a new insight into the amazing life of these animals, self sufficient in the middle of such a vast desert.
       
     
 Leveillä is a table derived from the bent plywood techniques of the 1930’s and 1940’s craftsmen. With this table the aim was to explore how the designers were able to craft objects of a timeless and beautiful nature.   Leveillä was hand made in a cold press lamination. Using CNC technology to create the mold allowed for an accuracy that translates throughout the whole table.  The glass sheet to slips into place yet is held firm enough to not  require fittings. This has allowed the design to be kept clean and simple in its overall form.     
       
     
 The Alpha Stool is a sustainable exploration made from the waste wood of the previous project  Leveilla . Using the same mold in a new configuration Alpha stool exists without the need to redesign or reengineer. By changing the distance between the radii Alpha stool gains its elegant beauty through its simplicity and traditional manufacturing technique.
       
     
 With the recent uprise of natural disasters in New Zealand the infrastructure to deal with such events has come under fire. In recent events a critical problem has been the ability to communicate. The mobile networks become overloaded and power to the city is in most cases shut off. This leads to panic and uncertainty among the public.   In a disaster it is possible to lose all forms of communication entirely. With this being said I aimed to design an infrastructure that did not rely on traditional methods of communication. An entirely new system that would allow people to gain the necessary knowledge in order to make safe and informed decisions. 
       
     
 'Sandscriber' was a group project, based on unconventional 3D modelling machines. We developed a robot capable of driving down the beach, CNC stamping art or messages into the sand behind it. In today's world so many objects are created with no longevity or thought on the product after life. Sandscriber is robust in its mechanical assembly yet the art it creates only exists as long as the tide takes to wash it away. Thus leaving a blank canvas the next day to create again.   Sandscriber uses an arduino to control stepper motors and pneumatic actuators all powered through a 12v rechargeable battery. 
       
     
 By measuring the body we are able to create custom fits and individualised adornment. With the rise of 3d printing and advanced manufacturing methods the access to these objects has risen dramatically.   Scanned, measured, designed and then 3d printed these rings were designed to perfectly fit the wearer. No longer do we need generic sizing and measurements we can easily and efficiently design the perfect fit. 
       
     
 As instant espresso machines become more and more popular the rituals, traditions and coming together that coffee can offer is being lost. Now one might take a minute or less to have a shot and get back to the task at hand. This minute ignores the opportunity to take a break or catch up with friends.    With the Auga Cafe people are encouraged to take time out and enjoy a break. Auga cafe is still an automated process but uses a more traditional 'pour over' method to produce the users coffee.
