The Path of Design Part 2

3 Ideazzz
Well, once holiday arrived, my lazy genes start to kicks in which explains my lack of motivation to blog. Anyone miss my crap? Nope? Damn....

Let's start off from where we last left off. I apologize for not properly introducing the title of the previous projects. Sean's project is to design a gardening product while Chong How's project is to design a street furniture. Let's get on with the next entry which also involves street furniture.

1. Ooi Shi Jia

A street furniture should not only serve as a purposeful product. It should serve as part sculpture in order to enhance the aesthetics of an environment. The White Stripe achieved the exact requirement of a successful street furniture. A timeless design of playground-cum-sculpture will captivate the hearts of many with its outstanding form while preserving a touch of simplicity in it. Nonetheless, The White Stripe will definitely strip your breathe away.

Next up, a design project for storage. The project is to design a futuristic storage system for any product.

2. Loh Hwee Yun

Anyone fancy a fancy wine rack design? Since wine are produced by fermentation of grapes and bla bla bla which I conclude its a bunch of chemical reaction doing its thing in producing the finest liquid for consumption. A chemical bonding inspired design wine rack naturally comes in play to complete the whole chemical equation. The wine rack design not only produced aesthetically pleasing outlook, you too can play around with the way it should stand, look and hold.

That's all for part 2. This is rather a short post compare to my previous posts. For part 3, I will showcase designs from recycled metal products which is also my project. Honestly, I have second thoughts of publishing my design this time because it sucks aesthetically. However, I might reveal them after rounding up several of the good ones. Please comment on their designs, really appreciate it. Hopefully I will update my post as soon as possible although not much ppl will read it anyway.

The Path of Designs Part 1

6 Ideazzz
Some of you might aware that I’m a design student majoring in Industrial Design in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia despite my awfully lack of photoshopped pictures or own customized blog layout. The reason I’ve been in hiatus for a week is because of rushing my design projects. Now it’s the time where I will proudly present to you the finest works of the final year undergraduates Industrial Designs in UTM. I only blog about those few that I think impressive since there are over 90plus works over there, It’s gonna take more than a few bloody blog page to post them all.

Sean Choo Fook Sin

Being a great mentor to me for several occasions although I still miles behind him, it’s naturally that his works always come out as one of the best.

When humans often seek for the best home with the best interior, we should not be forgetting our fellow mother nature as well. The Vein is an aesthetically designed home for flowers or plants which not only help provide an attractive outlook for them but also helping gardening lovers to ease their work. Worries of getting an aesthetically pot for indoor gardening are no longer an issue with this design and it could not only appeal towards gardening lovers but also people who just appreciate a good decorative piece of accessory.

The functionality of this design I’ll directly quote from one of our senior’s comment on facebook as I’m lazy to explain everything again and he explains them pretty well too.

“u see those rods like thgy thr? they function like shovel to loosen up soil and also to guide the circular thgy (compression springs) which are attached to the white sculpture..
basically, water plays an important role here as weight to bring sculpture down to indicate that the plants has got enough resources (with assumption that the soil has got fixed mass)..
so whn the water level went down, there is reduction in amount of weight whereby the springs unload and the white sculpture moves up, giving indication that it's time the plant needs to be watered..”-Kinhee (SRI God)

Liau Chong How(not the girl)

He is one of our top students, so it is not surprising that his works are equally impressive. Despite his unnaturally extreme case of “kap siao-ness”, his works display a total opposite of his character.

Perhaps one of the best gifts ever created by God is shelter. The earliest form of shelter came from Mother Nature such as trees, caves, stones and many more. With the urban lives developing fast, more and more high rise buildings were erected with the comparable speed and amount of erections created by Megan Fox. As the town gets more developed, the more pollution and the fewer trees there are in our environment. With a spark of inspiration, this following bus stop was designed. This bus stop design is meant to create awareness among the urbanites regarding the environment. The bus stop is designed with sustainable materials and also a solar panel on its roof to create lighting in the shelter. Let’s just say this is a friendly and cool reminder of the urbanites about the importance of environmental friendliness. Let the cultivation of awareness begins…

I had to put this sketching done by Chong How after seeing how good it is.

Chong How: Want to sketch like me? Read my thesis la….

That’s all for Part 1. Posting too many designs will be unnecessary and there will be more to come in the next few posts. Enjoy. Please leave a comment so that my fellow friends and seniors will be appreciated. Feedbacks regarding the designs are highly recommended as requested by them.

The Underwear Story

10 Ideazzz
Sometimes the weirdest things happens. By weirdest, I really do mean the screwed up type weird. Apparently, there is an underwear thief here in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. Why? Look at this notice below.

Yeah, I know that some might think that this is common and might not seem weird to you people that there are underwear thieves around. So, let me point to you guys why this is weird.

1. I lived in a all-boys and only boys allowed hostel and this notice is in one of my hostel's laundry lobby.

Who the fuck in the right mind will go and steal underwear from the same bloody sex? And according to this notice, it seems like underwear stealing in my hostel is a HABIT. Seriously, I do not know that any guys and even gays will think of stealing underwear from other people of the same sex.

No matter how kinky their mind is in, there's no bloody difference in the underwears among guys no matter what freaking brand they are. Very few guys have fancy underwear worth stealing. Unlike girls, we look like shit in underwear.

Living in this conservative environment, I doubt there will be even guys that wear thong so I assume that all the underwears here are the same. Is either that thief is a sick dude or just really need to sell some under to make a quick buck.

2. The warning

Look at the warning. "Be ware, anda diperhatikan". What the hell with this warning? Should we piss our pants when we saw that message? That's so kindergarden standard of treat. If I'm the one who made the notice, I will come out with these warnings.

1. I have AIDS, steal my underwear bitch if you have balls of steel
2. I masturbated with these on, steal them if you don't mind
3. No point stealing, my package is too big and you definitely won't be able to wear my underwear
4. I wipe my ass with these

Now that's what I call proper warnings. I don't have AIDS FYI, so don't get the wrong idea when I mentioned that. Besides the no.3, there is no truth in any of them.

That's all for some random crap from me again after a week long in hiatus. My advice for underwear thief, if you not have any underwear for yourself, go freeballing la...better for you la...make your package bigger..LMAO
