Inspired by the use of bright plastics by Yuri Suzuki, particularly yellow, I have decided on a plain white design with two yellow accents. These accents will be the cable that connect the object to my laptop and the spinning carousel. I’ve chosen this as the yellow is quite striking and bold. As mentioned before I want users to be interested in it and I want them to play with it.
I’m currently testing designs for a lid which I hope will resemble the lid of a vinyl turntable. This will give the object a more occasional feel, like it is only used when there is a social engagement within its housed environment. The lid will be frosted and with the yellow carousel underneath it should be slightly visible through the lid. This will hopefully encourage users to open it and see whats inside.
