Sometimes, companies spend fortunes on industrial design teams for decades only to be outdone by a simple student project like this one: a flat fold-out version of the traditional three-prong power cord as thin and mobile as the Apple MacBook Air. In the United States we are familiar with the slightly-fattening third prong but in the United Kingdom the typical cord tip is even bigger, turning electrical cord ends into something that looks downright archaic next to our streamlined and thin modern gadgetry. Better yet, the design idea by Royal College of Art student Min Kyu Choi does not stop with a single cord – multi-plug cords were naturally factored into the mix as well.
This beautiful maze was completely designed by Lee-Kuo. He began with a few sketches on graph paper and then decided to use a 20 mm cube grid system with 5 mm thick walls. He drew the maze on 4 separate floors until he had a great pathway to the end. After he had finished the drawings he wanted to make it with matchsticks, we glued about 500 together and decided it would take to long, so I drew everything in Illustrator and printed it onto 120g paper. The result is a wonderfully strong cube maze which gives people hours of fun trying to get the ball through the maze.
These quotes will surely inspire, assist, motivate, and help every one about Design. Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose. â€” Charles Eames
