Project title: Zesty

Can you tell us a little more about your project?

Zesty is a manual fruit juicer inspired by geometry and the number 12. It’s sculptural design without a single straight line provides a unique user experience and perfect grip. The squeezer holds all the fibre on top whilst letting the juice drain down to the cup.

How important is being able to exhibit externally?

Very important, as it gives me the opportunity to present my work to different audiences, their reactions are crucial as feedback.

What has your highlight of the course been so far?

Basically every project is a highlight because every project expects more to be done and it is expecting to raise the bar in a shorter time frame. Those are the challenges that I am facing on every project and is making me push my boundaries even further.

Could you tell us a little more about your design interests?

My design interest are closely related to fractal geometry and vortex based mathematics. Also a big influence on my design is the car industry in which I am interested since I was a toddler.

What advice would you give to someone considering studying Product and Furniture Design at BCU?

If you like making things, being creative and doing a lot of research while communicating your steps with your lecturers, this is the best place to grow your skills and knowledge. It is a great place to experience a high demanding workload before you get employed, so when that time comes you can say that it is easy.
