Design Studio: Concepts and Narratives, Week 8 Complete

Week 8 of Design Studio: Concepts and Narratives is complete. In week 8 we continued our development of design conceptualisation, through anti-design.

This week I focussed on developing my favourite concept, which was a Tissue Box Necklace. The main idea being that it could be worn around the neck, made of paper (construction paper) and have tissues that were too small to be practical. Creating something that is anti-design, means that it might at first appear to be useful, but it’s function is severely limited. I began the process by creating many model plans for how the box would be folded and cut. I didn’t want something that was too small, and decided to reduce the size 200% from a standard tissue box. This was it was still large enough to be ‘annoying’ as a necklace accessory. After this I experimented with hand drawn patterns, to make the tissue box more eye catching and interesting. Then I investigated a name for the tissue box and after numerous searches and business name/trademark checks decided on Tishlace, Tissue Box Necklace.

Here are some photos of the finished model.
