Clone One, Smartphone
Clone was designed around the principle of seamless with an emphasis of pushing the boundaries of what mobile device is. Accentually a mobile device is a personal assistant dedicated to helping you to maneuver throughout your day, simple right? Pushing that Idea through feasible future-forward features driven by theory and conveyed by design, I was able to capture the new meaning for this device, Clone. Clone represents what a personal device is, an artificial version of yourself. Essentially a digital clone, in a miniature abstract form. Design, inspired by simplicity and seamlessness. Visioning the future as the world and all services become seamless so will design follow. Shaping this vision around the measurement that continuous and seamless works as one, curves continue in all directions.

Pure 02 : Air Dehumidifier
Iconic Design, Optimized for Performance.  The iconic reuleaux triangle is optimized for performance and visuals. The mass heavy modules such as the inner filter and battery are located at the bottom and the lightweight fiber around the high-tech minimal top side. This shape lowers the center of gravity for a steady position for consistent air flow. This rounded triangular shape is for improving the performance of the internal noise canceling engineering which helps for distant voice recognition in any direction. With simple and stable design, it fits well with most interior spaces. To provide stable feeling in the home, the body is covered with fabric and the external parts are minimized for a simple appearance.

White B|01
White, Discovering The Importance Of Emptiness  White is the absence of matter—the removal of chaos. Our society is one of ubiquity, engulfed by an ever-growing interest in social identities, which have become increasingly inseparable from the information and material goods that we consume. White explores the nature of choice; in particular how we choose, why we choose and the implications those decisions have on the formation of our social identities and behaviors. White examines the importance of design and its relevance in improving the fundamental principles of our existence, which aids in balancing social, intellectual and emotional experiences. White intends to create tangible forms that accentuate the abundance of matter present in our lives and introduces the order necessary in achieving clarity.
