My project proposal was to design an interior space influenced entirely by design areas which are unrelated to interior design, such as product design, sculpture or jewellery design. My biggest influence for this project was Thomas Heatherwick’s ‘Seed Cathedral.’ The unusual form of the space and modern materials used was perfect for my project. One of my main focuses throughout this year was to develop my model making skills, especially throughout my final project where my final outcome is a refined model of a cafe.
Originally, I wanted to work with an already existing space but due to covid-19 I had to adapt and decided on creating a temporary space: a café which can be easily taken apart and transported between different locations such as parks. My original project proposal stayed the same throughout with only a few changes, such as me having to adapt to the current situation.
In the future I see myself continuing to develop my interior design skills, keeping a sense of creativity in my work. Throughout the course I really developed my evaluative skills, thinking critically about my work and worked on my model making skills. This year helped me confirm that working in Interior Design is the direction which I want to go into.
