    WHERE DOES THE CONSUMER PRINTER LIVE?

    FINDING THE PROBLEMCurrent consumer printers on the market are designed to fit in an office environment but none seem to be designed for the home.

    WHERE DOES THE CONSUMER PRINTER LIVE?

    LIVING ROOM KITCHEN

    LOCATION LOCATION LOCATIONWhere, when, and why were some of the questions I asked. It become not about the printer itself but where to get the prints. Exploring the kitchen for recipes, living room because of its accessibility for everyone in the household, and bedroom for its ease, entry way for convenients.

    MOKU HOME PRINTERMokuzai is the Japanese word for wood for building. I was influenced by the Eames bent wood lamination process. I also felt that the wood added a lot to making the printer look warmer for the home rather then cold plastic.

    HOW MOKU WORKS

    1. Finished prints fall into the front tray

    2. Paper can be loaded into the rear tray

    3. Top door opens for easy maintenance

    DESIGNING FOR A MODERN KITCHENI wanted to design a chair with a very clean modern style with something a little bit different than your average chair.

    TRIAL AND ERRORThe biggest problem with my design is that the chair is on 2 legs rather then 4 which causes a big problem with structure. I found a solution in adding support bars but aesthetically they looked very stuck on. I added an additional loop in the back to support the structure from twisting which also relates to the foot rest of the bar stool.

    WOOD VENEER PLYWOOD STEEL ROD

    MATERIALS AND PROCESSBent wood lamination and steel rod were the materials and processes I chose to use because I was drawn to the light and linear aesthetics.

    SOLIDWORKS BIKE

  • TOMMY LOTH INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

    24

    SOLIDWORKS BIKEThis project was an exercise in learning how to use Solidworks to create a 3D CAD model. I learned how to create solids, surfaces, assemblies, and drawings.

    RECTILINEAR

  • TOMMY LOTH INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

    28

    EXPLORATIONI made models out of clay and foam to see what types of shapes I could make. Through making various combinations I saw that they sometimes related to certain objects like a belt sander.

    29

    RECTILINEARWith this project I explored the relationship between dominant, subdominant and subordinate forms. I wanted to create a very certical piece with very little horizontal direction.

    CURVILINEAR

  • TOMMY LOTH INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

    32

    3D EXPLORATIONI found myself making very flame like shapes but I ended up taking inspiration from birds. I just tried a lot of different combonations of 2D shapes to see how they would look in 3D.

  • TOMMYLOTH@GMAIL.COM 408 807 8585

    33

    CURVILINEARWith this assignment we explored the relationship of two 2D shapes coming together to make a 3D form. I wanted to create something with very soft curves and break away from making it look like it came out of a 4x4 piece of wood.

    4 X 8 FT SHEET OF PLYWOOD

    FLAT PACK CONTRAINTSWith this assignment we were only allowed one 4x8 ft sheet of plywood and the piece of furniture must ship flat. I tried to use as much of the material as I could without waste.

    TURTLE SHELFThe end result is the turtle shelf that can be hung up on the wall using a simple diagnal wall mount plate. Its great for kids to put their toys and art supplies in.

    BUD VASEWith this assignment we were given the challenge of making a mold and learning how to deal with draft angles. We had to design a vase with a 3D element and 2D element in combination.

    ASPIRATIONSI wanted to design a flashlight that would match the aesthetics of outdoor gear. I looked at camping, backpacking, and hiking products.

  • TOMMY LOTH INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

    48

    2D EXPLORATIONI explored different types of aesthetics to fit what I wanted to do with my flashight. I ended up going with a multi texture, multi color theme to fit with the rugged outdoor environment.

    3D EXPLORATIONThrough 3D mock ups I explored the different ergonomics and scale for my flashlight.

    51

    MOUNTAIN TREK FLASHLIGHTI designed this flashlight to have a lot of forward direction and a very fast aesthetic. I chose a textured finish to make it rugged and grippy. The dark green color was chosen to fit in to camping, hiking, and backinging activities.

    CO2 Cartridge

    monofilament

    3D EXPLORATION & CONSTRAINTSWe had to design around a cargo space in the center of the car and a c02 cartridge that would fit into the rear. Initially I took inspiration from jets and insects.

    ROCKET CARMy final design is something that resembles a slug. I wanted to create a feeling of turning or sliding while the car sits still so all of the wheels sit at an angle including the car itself.

    JACK HANDLE REDESIGNMy group saw an opportunity to design something that hasnt really changed for a really long time. We chose the jack handle. I worked in a tire shop so Ive had 5 years of experience using a floor jack, which also motivated me to innovate.

    WHERE IT HURTSAfter a long time of using the jack you start to feel pain in the middle of your hand. It also doesnt help that all the other tools you use also cause pressure in that area. The torque wrench, tire bar, and jack all cause pressure in that region of the hand.

    THIS IS WHERE HE HURTS

  • TOMMY LOTH INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

    62

    PHASE 1We looked at different ways it could press against your hand and some ways people could possibly hold it differently.

    PHASE 2With phase two we used wood so that we could actually test these on a real jack. Our mock ups were too big and it made it hard to make the up stroke to pump again.
