For form class, we designed a bluetooth speaker - I explored a form that deviates from typical circular or rectangular motifs, taking a more decorative approach instead. From a doodle that resembled a cartoon beehive, it transitioned into a ribbon, eventually becoming Whipp (like whipped cream!). I then chose for audio output locations to sit within the curves in an alternating manner.
Whipp directs sound differently depending on how it lays, and displays its more decorative, grille-free side with a simple rotation. It charges wirelessly, and has a touch-sensing power button on the bottom. I think it would be fun to juxtapose a white and a brown version, since color alone can completely sway our interpretation of the form.
During the finishing process, it was most difficult to sand, spackle and spray paint the small crevices for a smooth, even surface. That was most likely because the model is quite small - I would scale it up if I were to do it again.
