For Assignment two, we were tasked to come up with 40 ideation sketches. The biggest challenge for this assignment is to break up the archetypal components of an object and reconstruct them into a new form.
Here is the anatomy of a kettle, its made up with three important components, the kettle body, handle and the spout.
I deiced to use the “Destruction” approach for this project. For organic forms, I was inspired by elephant and penguin, some of the similarities they shared is the chubby body(kettle body) and interesting organic lines (elephant trunk).
For the sketches inspired from geometric forms, I drew ideas from Architectural buildings, perfume bottles and daily objects that I observed. The sharp angles and edges in these sketches gives a modern vibes of the kettle. However after I draw 10 sketches (from left t0 right), I deiced to incorporate organic and geometric forms together to create a interested composition.
Overall I do really enjoyed this project, its challenge us to really think deeper and let our imagination run wild.
