The next generation of designers from around the world participated in the 2013 WING International Student Design Competition and Awards.
The winning project was submitted by student designers Alina Boukovsky and Yirat Lorenz, 3rd year Interior Design students from the College of Management Academic Studies in Rishon LeZion, Israel. Titled ‘Blob: Innovative Workspace’, the design team concept focuses on the personal space of people being dramatically reduced in the modern era as result of a demographic shift.
The design was influenced by the recent trend to create products with multiple uses in one element. Given this trend, they developed a workspace model that meets both functional and decorative aspects. With an Iron rod as the backbone of the workstation, the MDF wood units threaded through the rod, moving around in a unique way, according to the required function. The center pole also doubles as a pass through for the power cable for the lighting fixture located at the top of the model.
“In my design projects I always try to find original, interesting and creative solutions, even for the most standard cases”, said Lorenz, whose connection to art began at early childhood. “The ‘Blob’ project was really challenging and exciting experience for me, from an idea searching process until it`s physical creation”, concluded Boukovsky.
