Canadian Wood Council Wood Product Design Project
Fall 2007


Summary:
This team project requires a new product idea to demonstrate the presence of Canadian wood in the design market. This lighting idea creates interest through an eye-catching application of illuminating veneers and pushing the limits of how electricity manoeuvres through wooden parts. Each cylindrical lamp tier independently rotates about a central spine. I contributed to design documentation, structural design, electrical design and construction, and prototype assembly.

ideation, technical drawings, precise prototype, business plan, presentation
