The winter term is over. But nothing is over with out a big show down. So the students of the Rapid Volume project I conducted with my colleague Wilm Fuchs at the University of the Arts in Berlin had shown their result in very good presentation. The students had to design a handy object of everyday use, that is mainly characterized by its volume. So far so easy one might say, but the trick was also to learn to design the object with CAD software. The CAD models had to be cnc.milled and deep drawn to create a real sized mock up that allready can be used. There was a lot of research, “early-mock-up-ing” and failure but in the end everyone was more than happy with his or her result. The objects range from cup to seat and from lamp to laundry basket.
