Silhouette Collection

The project gives a second chance to such an unvalued object as a PET bottle, which would be normally thrown away after it has been used. The idea was to create a vase conserving only its silhouette. The vase itself represents an external shell with an inner neck fillet, so it can be screwed onto a bottle like a cap. The 3D printed structure dresses the bottle and makes it disappear under its mesh. The uniqueness of design is the result of choice of shapes, the reduced use of resources necessary for the 3D prints and the new life given to items destined to be discarded.

Sprout

Through the topology optimization of the bicycle frame deployment, and then according to the corresponding optimization results, the optimization of the corresponding frame prototype is completed, and then the bicycle is produced by 3D printing. The topology-optimized bicycle frame not only reasonably plans the material structure distribution , but also reduces the energy consumption rate and the emission of harmful substances in production.

Moon

This light plays an active role to accompany people in a working space from morning to the night. It was designed with people working environment in mind. The wire can be connected to a laptop computer or a power bank. The shape of the moon was made of three quarters of a circle as a rising icon from a terrain image made of stainless frame. The surface pattern of the moon reminds the landing guide in a space project. The setting looks like a sculpture in the daylight and a light device that comforts the tense of work at night.

DefeXtiles

DefeXtiles is a rapid and low-cost technique to produce realistic high-fidelity textiles on 3D printers. The work demonstrates that under-extrusion defects can be finely controlled to quickly print thin flexible textiles into complex 3D shapes. This approach enables a myriad of applications including printing full sized garments, deformable tangible interfaces, and ultra-tough shuttlecocks.

CHESS DRAMA

The pieces of xiangqi are always kept in a 2-dimensional feature with a round object engraved with Chinese characters and never changed before. Because of this monotonous shape, more and more youngsters tend to regard xiangqi as a board game for the elderly. So this design is to meet rising aesthetic needs of people, arousing interests of the young in this ancient puzzle game in a result of increasing the market share of the game. That means this unique Chinese culture is no longer confined to the group of middle and old aged people, but can also become a trend in the younger generation.
