MDes / BA (Hons) Product Design
My name is Steph and I live in Coventry. I am an outgoing, friendly individual that enjoys using my imagination and creativity to generate solutions to different problems. My final major project focuses on the 7–11 year olds in the UK care system and the typical problems they face on a daily basis. Foster children are constantly moving from one household to another, having to start over in new places, meeting new people – a product that they can call their own seemed essential. Oblik Blox enhances the user's creativity whilst providing the opportunity to make the audience feel secure both mentally and physically in their own home.
The 40-piece inflatable set allows the audience to use their imagination to create whatever they want, wherever they want – the possibilities are endless. Oblik Blox helps to build relations, express emotions and teach love, care and affection through communication.
Using eco-friendly Repreve from Unify for the inflatables, Regenerated Nylon from Econyl for the covers and non-toxic PVC from Baby Care for the playmats, allow each of my components to be 100% recyclable. In conjunction with the Oblik Bloxcycle scheme, the cradle-to-cradle design is highly sustainable.
Who doesn't enjoy designing for children? Just let your imagination run wild.
