    An exercise in conceptualising and visualising product form using quick prototyping methods.
    Published:
The design of this carving knife was heavily influenced by Industrial Designer Raymond Loewy's streamlined designs from the 1930's and the form and movement of sharks in their natural environment.
 
I wanted to create the impression of streamlined movement in the design of the knife, this I acheived by including flowing lines and subtle contours in the design.  I used blue foam and board to test the form and functionality of the knife, as well as understand the aesthetic contrast between the hilt and blade.
Form development for the hilt.  I wanted to understand how streamlined motion could be captured in a static profile view of the product.
