MELT - light
MELT design lighting is made of mouth-blown glass that creates an illusion of a melting ice block. The unique shapes of the lamps are made with free blowing technique where the bubble is blown over a graphite block. The hollow brick-shape is finished with sand blasting and becomes the characterizing element of the product.
As there is water added into the lamp, it can also be used as a vase or the water can be colorized to make different variations of the clear glass lamp. The water inside the lamp also reflects the light beautifully on the table and makes it more alive.
MELT is blown at Mafka & Alakoski glass studio in Riihimäki, Finland.
FLIP - Electric foldable scooter
Foldable electric scooter concept for Finnish e-scooter brand Meeko.
My proposal for the new Meeko scooter has a very minimalist style. All the unnecessary elements have been left out of the design and the remaining are aesthetically as simple as possible. So simply put, “form follows function”.
The rotary folding system allows the two main frames to be almost identical. The scooter folds simply by turning the steering stem 180° and tilting it then down. The round plates around the hinge prevent the stem from folding down while driving. The wooden board and the handle bars have also hinges so the scooter folds in a very compact size. The battery and control unit with all the electricity is hidden inside the pipe structure.
