Trinity Box System

Henry Tao

My design concept is a new box system which uses Loll’s material and structures to redefine storage in the entryway. The Trinity Box System is for easy fabrication using Loll’s core competency in manufacturing. The design only employs two different elements needed to build the boxes. Three boxes become a set, and sets can be combined into more sets to create hundreds of different positive and negative spaces.

Elevate

Austin Fagot

There is just something in outdoor air that transforms one from a slumbering sloth to a lollygagging lemur. We thought plants might have something to do with it so we created an indoor planter to heighten your lollygagging year round. This planter was built to grow with your amusement, four snaps and a slide brings you to the next level. Constructed from recycled milk jugs, they will keep water and your plants in an exclusive relationship for life. Elevate is designed to allow water to cascade and nurture your greenery spirits on every successive row, safely catching the leftovers on the bottom for you to reuse or throw out. Whatever your wall space, Elevate your lollygag.

The circular slotted design on the top punctuates the surface, while providing ventilation.

A chalkboard is a traditional public communication channel. In an increasingly digital world it is a nostalgic and highly personal statement. Chalker is a space for reminders, and a special home communication device for family members, which creates a warm and sweet link between public and private worlds. The design of Chalker is based on the manufacturing capabilities of Loll Designs. And the material is durable, recycled plastic.

Magnifier Shot Glass

Zhuo Wang

This magnifier shot glass is designed to be a souvenir for Corning Museum of Glass. Shot glass is a common souvenir besides used for drinking shot, and this concept is try to combine the art with technology because Corning is the leader of glass industry with a lot of high-tech on glass, also I want to bring some function to the shot glass instead of just design a souvenir for people to collect.
