The coupling of engineering and elegance to produce beautiful, efficient and ingenious designs is what catches my imagination.

Balance draws inspiration from the simplicity of the wine bottle holder. This dynamic, functional design challenges the user to interact with the seemingly impossible.

Yumi (group project) is a product and service that facilitates the stress-free preparation and cooking of a delicious healthy meal from raw ingredients.

Tastea will revolutionise tea-making, enabling discerning tea drinkers worldwide to enjoy top quality teas when- and wherever they want.
