    BioFurniture (IMPUMFAID) Improving Materials Properties using Modified Flax and Innovative Design

    This project seeks to establish whether modified bio-composite sheet materials made from renewable natural resources can be used as viable alternatives to compressed sheet and petrochemical based materials currently used in the production of furniture designs.

  • The Practices and Circumstances that shape Product Attachment in the Home

    The Practices and Circumstances that shape Product Attachment in the Home

    My article-based PhD contributes to research on design and sustainable consumption, by exploring how and why we keep things.

  • Loolab

    Loolab

    The aim of the project was to further our knowledge within the context of the cultural use of bathrooms

  • Ergonomic Cutlery

    Ageing results generally results in a reduction of physical ability, and an increased likelihood of some form of chronic illness such as arthritis or musculoskeletal pain

  • Understanding Dexterity and Packaging

    As we age, there is a natural decline in our physical and mental capabilities. Generally we are not as strong or as dexterous as we used to be and there is some decline in our visual acuity and memory

  • Incredibles - Off-Space exhibition

    Incredibles - Off-Space exhibition

    Under the heading INCREDIBLES Zellweger explores the uncanny but also spectacular side of medical body modification and toys with its psychological implications; the lengthening of limbs (phantom limbs), improved performance (plug-ins & add-ons), impossible body parts, optional aesthetics, variations and choice (from the INCREDIBLES series).

  • RSA Spinal Injury Design Workshops

    RSA Spinal Injury Design Workshops

    This Lab4Living project relates to Design and Rehabilitation, an RSA initiative which began in 2009, to teach design to people with spinal cord injuries (SCI) as a route to independence, resourcefulness and greater control over their lives.

  • TacMap

    TacMap

    This project concerns the development of an iconic tactile language for use in the production of tactile maps. Though Braille is assumed to be the main way blind people read and write, in Britain (for example) out of the reported 2 million cohort of visually impaired individuals, it is estimated that only 15-20,000 people use Braille and its use has declined since the increase of blind children into mainstream schools.

  • Friction stirred mokume gane

    Friction stirred mokume gane

    Mokume gane is a high value, decorative laminate material used in the jewellery industry. Production of mokume gane is difficult and expensive at both small scale and industrial levels.

  • PhD case study - Open Design for Medical Products

    PhD case study - Open Design for Medical Products

    Involving users in the design of medical products appears to be ‘common sense’; the notion that an individual that lives with a particular condition has a unique insight into life with that condition appears self-evident.
