Elvira Moka Twist / Render Weekly  / 2021

Inspired by my nonna, a woman who would refuse to give up her independence in the kitchen well into her 90s, the Elvira moka Twist provides the same classic moka experience with an easier twist. Many older users are unable to create a full twisted seal due to degenerative joint issues such as arthritis. The extended range of motion provided by the two handles significantly decreases wrist pain when tightly sealing the moka pot closed. The form itself captures the original moka pot features while seeming twisted itself, playfully hinting at the interaction between the user and the product.

Designing products with problems such as Arthritis and joint mobility issues in mind will help both to provide personal independence and keep cooking traditions alive in an older population as well as provide opportunities into the culinary space to disabled people who are limited with the current state of cooking products that don’t provide them the ability for independent culinary experiences.

Rumor Chair / Render Weekly / 2021 

A homage to the telephone chairs of old, this is a comfortable and inviting armchair with a worksurface intended for casual reading, note taking, tablet usage or display. In addition to creating a unique proportional footprint, the hard worksurface creates another possible material for end users to personalize to their individual liking.

Telephone chairs were often casually referred to as “gossip chairs” during the height of their usage and popularity due their combination with the telephone. Sitting in their chairs, friends would often discuss the most scandalous and freshest social news of the day, earning the chair its moniker. The Rumor Chair’s name is a nod to the telephone chair’s casual nickname.

Standing out from the crowd with its offset yet endearing proportions, the Rumor Chair is an instant classic that feels comfortable alongside any furniture piece. Intended for online customization and ordering, the rumor chair is focused on modular customization.
