17-06-2008 - 1st Place at Bristol Design Festival!

Last Friday Evening was the opening show of Brsitol Design Festival, where my table design 'Cocoon' came first place in the grafikea contest >.< I was also interviewed by Phil Hammond on BBC Radio Bristol the next morning to talk about the design.

The contest was to buy a 'Lack' table from Ikea and modify it in any way you liked. These are the features I added:
  • The retractable Canopy is made from recycled wire, ribbons, and sheer white cotton. It allows for a private space to work/plot mischief.
  • I made a cushon cover from one of my brother's old curtains. There's a circle of velcro sewn to the top, so that it can be stuck on the underside of the table when not in use.
  • A set of fairy lights are attached to the inside of the hood with ribbon ties. They're charged by a battery pack thats also velcro'd under the table, so can easily removed if young kids are around.

    The Percect Day Festival website which I've been working on with Burning Origami for the last couple of months is now live! Nice logo eh


    This is the cover I made for somebody called Chris at a recent CD-mix swap. The theme was 'guilty pleasures' which was quite hard - I could only really guess which tunes people would consider shameful.

    Sadly the CD I got back was in mp3 so all I get out of my hifi is crackle. Maybe that was the point?
