Positive and Negative

This is a product that serves as function and beauty simultaneously, spiced with a hint of culture and roots. 'Positive and Negative' paravant acts as an adjustable and mobile barrier for privacy that does not protrude or disrupt a space. The Islamic motif gives a lace-like effect that is subtracted and vice-versa from the Corian/Resin material. Similar to the yin yang, there's always a little good in the bad and always a little bad in the good.

Cat's Cradle

Digits or Fibers, a current design process dilemma. All of us are beginners but some of us have to work at it. Beginning designers observe every technique available and learn some. With time (~10,000 hours) we acquire facility (-ies) that elevate/popularize/personalize/economize our game. So, I am fascinated by the current fascination with media that propose that the most basic building block of design is the digit, easily controlled. The digit is not a life-generating unit, merely a rounding down to a least common denominator smaller than fiber. Design is at least shards, splinters and fiber.
