Simple Product Design

Description

Design brief: Design a simple product using bamboo as the material and taking one of bamboo’s properties as the main property of the product.


The inspiration to make a bamboo clip came from the letter A, which I chose the plastic clip to represent. That’s how the idea started to evolve. I used the linear grain property of bamboo to make the clip. The proposed design consists of three bamboo slivers, each 8 inches long. The slivers are bent using the steam bending technique at an angle of 60 degrees.
