My design for the Handkerchief Chair was inspired by Vignelli’s paper model for a children’s version, which was never produced. In my design, sharp edges of the original were softened and new functionality was imbedded in the back portion to accommodate children’s needs.
I was inspired by the shape of Vignelli’s Circolo Chair, 1979. I designed a lighter, more practical office chair by following the original chair’s visual language while providing a variety of combinations of chair legs to choose from in order to achieve the different needs in the work space.
This laptop / desktop stand has been inspired by the Serenissimo table which was designed in 1985. The relationship between thick and thin elements in the original design inspired the drama of forms in my piece, while creating space for computing, cord management and storage. The circular slotted design on the top punctuates the surface, while providing ventilation.
I was inspired by Vignelli’s Stacking Dinnerware for Heller 1967. My design explores contemporary lifestyles by engaging technology, information and consumption in the home.
Cloth Luminaire, Line extension of Knoll products. My design concept stems from research into the development of the Paper Clip Table designed in 1993. My concept was inspired by the linkage of the Paper Clip Table to the Handkerchief chair, which extended the logic of utilitarian object-languages as inspiration for form.
The new “2 Go” logo design was inspired by the colors and shapes used on the original packaging designed in 1990 for Pei’s Place (a cafeteria).
