This project focused on the form of a hair curling iron. It was my job to analyze the structure and modify the object.
In order to completely understand the product, i researched the current product. The size, shape, and layout- internal and external. I then drew detailed drawings to explain the construct of curling irons. I then used this information to aid my redesigns.
For each new design i made, i drew detailed sketches of the model. By doing this I was able to elaborate on the basic forms, exploring slight how a slight difference would effect the design. I added buttons, cords, and extensions that were to complex for blue foam models.
I used blue foam to model the ideas I had for redesigning curling wands. By doing this i was able to have a tangible design. i could then see how they would feel when they were held and used to curl hair. It was very fun to make and provide me with valuable skills in foam modeling.
This compilation of photos provides a detailed look at my curling iron redesigns including- ideation, sketches, and individual blue foam model photographs.
