Professional Industrial Designer

ABOUT ME

The ability to create homogenous and creative solutions to a design challenge is at the essence of the Industrial Designer work. Combining functionality, esthetics and pleasant user-experience is the result of a collaborating team of designers, engineers, scientists, users and a lot of other cycles. Every design is a tradeoff between different requirements, I believe that finding the right balance is a key to a successful design. The designer's responsibility is to be sensitive to these differentials while maintaining the design integrity.

 

As an Industrial Designer I aspire to take part in meaningful projects, to be a part of an heterogenic environment and use my abilities in order  to improve the well-being and livelihood of people.

 

 

Razor wheelchair

Active Wheelchairs are manufactured today to custom fit the user's dimensions and needs.

While Carbon Fiber might be the best choice for the application due to the high strength to weight ratio and stiffness, It is rarely being used because of the manufacturing methods of CF frames that usually include expensive molds and the fact that in this method it is not possible to custom fit the frame.

Custom Carbon-fiber wheelchair, designed from CF tubes and Titanium DMLS joints.

The model is designed in a parametric CAD software which allows data-driven modifications for each product and local manufacturing of the DMLS Joints.

 

Work in progress. Patent pending.

Trolley2

TreGo is the commercial successor of S-Cargo. TReGo transform any bicycles into a multiple purpose Tricycles, simply by  replacing the front wheel.

TreGo can have different “add-ons” such as rucksack, child-seat, racks, boxs..
TreGo function as a stand alone cart or trolley, without the bicycles.
Patent pending.

Tensile Lamp

Lightning object based on a Tensile structure, The lamp can be positioned in a variety of postures since the structure is connected together by the electric cable and not by joints.

A balance between the reflector and a Tungsten weight as well as the friction plays a crucial part keeping the structure balanced in different postures.

SKU TRACKING SYSTEM

Develop and design SKU tracking system mounted on shelves

I Have been Working with metal and aluminum for many years. Designing, bending, welding (Mig and Tig), machining and so on. 

Metal is one of my favorite materials to work with.

Metal Work

 

Sketches

Hand sketched on paper or tablet are the fastest and most free form of designing and conceptualizing. The possibility to evaluate different forms quickly in the one hand and to establish the design's "spirit" on the other is essential part of every successful design process.

Photography

Since many years I've been photographing, mostly combining photography with my passion to travel and nature but also as a tool for product and studio imagery.

In this collection most of the portraits are of children in south east Asia.

 

Technical skills

Processing hand sketches into a presentation-quality renders helps in creating a strong design language and upgrade the design in general, It is a fast and efficient way to compare form and color alternatives.

The ability to successfully convert 2D design into a 3D model allows the designer to work on details, solve problems, communicate with engineers, designers and clients, analyze the model  and prepare the parts for manufacturing. 

The challenge for the designer is to do all of the above while keeping the integrity of the initial design on the 3D model.
