Inside

Kofi Aidoo

MA work

My design philosophy is simple:

I believe in balance, symmetry and precision. I believe in the minimising of materials to maximum affect. I believe in inspiration. Inspiration comes from the marriage of form, materials and function. Most of all I believe in providing creative solutions to any problem.

My solo project is a deployable violin. It is an attempt to eliminate the obstacles that violinists encounter in practice and helps them maintain a relationship with their instruments.
