Minimal Desk

Minimal Desk:

Simple desk design for an office or living room.
Frame is 6″ x 6″ made from bamboo laminate. Glass surface is 1/2″ tempered glass.

Overall dimensions = length 96″ x width 54″ x height 48″

Omni Tool

Omni Tool:

The Omni Tool was designed for a local client in BC. The design was intended to aid people working on job sites who suffer from wrist problems. The design would transfer the load from the wrist to the top of the fore-arm thereby relieving the user from repetitive strain symptoms associated with most hand tools. The front attachments are also interchangeable allowing for multi-purpose use. Brian Mayer developed the concept and prototype and I created the Solidworks model and further refined the ergonomics.

Stella TS2 Slider Corner

Stella TS2 Slider Corner:

The Stella TS2 Slider Corner was designed for Stella Custom Glass Hardware based out of Vancouver. The design was intended to aid the current sliding door system to be able to seal on a 90 degree corner. The design also integrated the 3-point lock system that was being used for improved security and weather protection.

Air Mooch

Air Mooch:

Designed for the dirt bikers of BC. This pocket sized utility can transfer air from one tire to the next, aiding in the repair of dirt bike tires in the outback. Many times an air source might be lacking when riding in the mountains, so this tool will enable the transfer of air from your spare tire to any other tire in need of air.

Prefab Modular Office

Modular Pre-Fabricated Office:

Kwikbuild was a LONRHO backed company selling Pre-Fabricated buildings to African mining companies and Police Forces.

I had to take the original drawing of the office and convert it into a fully working SOLIDWORKS© model for library implementation of standard parts.

Floor drawings were created for welders to construct steel bases.

Bases are stacked in sequence and bolted together through pre-set holes. 4’ x 8’ Plywood boards fit on top of frames without any need for cutting. Screws fix boards directly into streel frames.

Panels we made by laminating 0.9mm CHROMADEK© on both sides of a 40mm sheet of polystyrene precut for male/female joints.

This office was built for a mining installation to include rooms for people to reside in.

The Modular Pre-Fabricated Office was designed while working for Kwikbuild in South Africa during 2011.

Tippi - Carton Handle


TIPPI was a design intended to help people who find it difficult to hold juice boxes in one hand.

A person would take TIPPI and attach it to a juice carton by breaking loose the cardboard flaps on the juice box and sliding them into the mouth pieces of TIPPI.

Seeing as the whole unit was to act as a handle for pouring the grip had to be easy and firm. A long ellipse was used as the main grip surface and sits naturally in the user’s hand.

The body was injection moulded out of ABS.

TIPPI was designed in collaboration with Jamii Hamlin while doing Freelance Industrial Design in South Africa in 2007.

Scorpion Knife

Scorpion Knife:

The Fight Knife was born out of curiosity about complex curves and heat-treated high carbon steel. I wanted to make a knife that looked like it moulds into your hands while covering all unprotected areas from possible attack.

Brass inlays highlight the contours of the blade while the knuckle plate finishes off the curve into infinity. Brass is highlighted into the handle with the connecting bolts and nuts being sanded flush to the wood.

Ergonomics played a large role in figuring out the position of the knife fighter’s hands in the most natural fighting stance. The blocking style of Bruce Lee was mimicked to figure out the best position.

The Scorpion Knife was desgined in 2007 in South Africa, while learning about basic metallurgy.

Mountain Bike Chain Stay

Off-Road Chain Stay:

During 2008 I did a lot of mountain biking and my bike started having problems on fast downhills. The chain had too much slack even with only one main front gear.

The design allows the rider to see the inner working of his chain while having an extremely strong casing protecting the Chainring. Fasteners are highlighted as visual features due to the transparent polycarbonate used for the 2 plates.

The transparent plates  allow the rider to monitior his/her chain at any time for obstructions or link damage.

Clamping the unit to the frame is made easy with the clamps joined by two M5 bolts. The first unit was built and fitted in 2008 to a GIANT STP hardtail bike

The Off-Road Chain Stay was designed while working as a Freelance Industrial Designer in South Africa.
