T O O T H B R U S H D E S I G N 1The toothbrush project was focused on human
ergonomics and the modern design. Toothbrushes in the market have thin width compare to this toothbrush.
Looking from the front view, the width of this toothbrush is similar to ones in the market, but looking from the side view, it is thicker. The grip that ergonomically fits to human
body is comforting while brushing a teeth. The shape of the rubber grip is designed to be simple, but at the same time ergonomic factor is also considered in order to avoid
slipping while brushing teeth.
T O O T H B R U S H D E S I G N 2The second toothbrush project was to also focused on
human ergonomics. The body of the toothbrush has complex curve lines, and at the same time it maintains
the ergonomic factor. Because of the complicated curve lines for the body part, the rubber grip is designed with simplicity. Even though the toothbrush looks too bulky compare to ones in the market, the attemept was to
escape from the conventional design.

Students from NASA Studio class worked as a team on designing a crew cabin that can be easily adapted to multiple types of mission spacecraft and sustain
four astronauts for two weeks. Our goal was to design a spaceship that have function of a surface lander,
exploration vehicle, and asteroid or space exploration vehicle. Research on different spaceship gave us idea for designing a spaceship and idea on what astronauts do in mars, moon, and asteriods. We focused on the
functionality of the common crew cabin and the space efficiency within the area. After the exterior and interior
design was finalized, everyone started to construct the spaceship with the foam board for the final model. Construction with the chip board was done before the
final model was made with foam board.
Sleeping hammock for the spaceship is designed for giving more privacy in the common crew cabin area,
maintain light weight in order for the spaceship to use less fuel, easy to store, and mainly minimize the space usage in terms of space effeciency. After the research, hammock style sleeping gives the best solution for the
design criteria that we wanted to fulfill. The construction and form of the sleeping hommock got inspiration from the construction method of Ferrari World. The tension of the cloth gives sturdy form when it is hanged to the
ceiling and the floor, also, it is flexible and foldable.

In terms of construction method for the prototype model, the white cloth was used to make the sleeping bag and
the blanket and the pilow is all attached to the hommock. Zippers are attached in order for astronautnts to easily
get on and off the sleeping bag. This sleeping bag gives privacy but it also gives open space so that astronauts would not feel that they are imprisoned. The sleeping
bag is located on the back of the spaceship and it can be rolled over when it is not in use. They are able store inside
the storage space located under the floor.

S T R E E T L I G H T D E S I G NThe design of this street light got inspiration from the
pattern and the function of a leaf. The pattern of the leaf vein is applied to the street light for folding mechanism.
The street light can be folded and unfolded itself vertically. During the daytime, the street light folds to be used as a shade. The street light collects solar energy and supply
the oxygen during the daytime. When the sun goes down, the street light unfolds itself and serves as a street light with the solar power that is collected during the day. All
of these functions are possible because the street light is made out of multiple layers like a leaf structure: oxygen
layer, LED light layer, and solar energy panel layer.
B L A C K B E R R Y P A C K A G I N GThe project was to design a Blackberry packaging
specifically for New York City office executives. In order to depict the architectural city like atmosphere, the shapes of this package was inspired by the modern high story
city buildings and geometric forms. For the prototype, the packaging is made out of styrene, giving sense of sharp,
simple, and modern feeling for the target users. The design of the packaging also considered importance on
the safety of the phone.
P A P E R L A M P S H A D EFor the design of the paper lampshade, the paper
origami method was used for contracting and expanding mechanism. Many different types of paper-folding
methods were explored to make the lampshade without using a tape. The bottom of the lampshade is folded to
fit tightly into the circle of the lampstand. The 3-ply paper was used so that when the light lit up the paper would
create shadows to convey its shape.
L E A F L A M P S T A N DWith inspiration from leaf veins and the Christian symbol of a fish, the form of this lamp stand is made. The cross lap joint on the bottom and the top part helps the wood
stick to stay in curved shape and stand by itself. Because of the tension, the wood glue and screws were applied
to the cross lap joint to be more stable. The Hanji (Korean traditional paper) is used for this lamp stand in order to
distribute the delicate lighting.
A L U M I N U M M O D U L A R I T Y The form of this modularity piece started out with the
exploration of quater circle made out of cardboard. A cube serves as a nuclear of this form by holding three circular modulars together. These modulars are able to be held onto the steel cube because of the magnet embedded inside of the each modulars. In order to have smooth
shiny surfaces, Bridgeport and metal lathe were used to mill the aluminum and the steel. The edges of the each
pieces were filed by hand to have a high quality finishing. To have a perfect precision, the construction process was planned on Solidwork before making the actual
piece. Also, the dimension drawing and the tolerance measurement was done before to prevent mistakes.
