Desert-patterned dehumidifier - Industrial educational co-op w/ Hankook Carbon
In collaboration with Hankook Carbon, we are tasked to design a carbon-fiber pattern and a product that matches the pattern.

I chose desert sands as my source of inspiration, and used Carbon Fiber(black), Glass Fiber(white) as warp and weft, and Aramid Tan(Orange) as an accent color weft.
I applied this desert pattern to the stand of the dehumidifier. It will strengthen the dehumidifier's functional image. The product shape is taken from the Pyramids in relation to the pattern design.
We visited the factory of Hankook Carbon to have instruction on how the carbon fiber pattern is made, and learn about limitations, possibilities in the designing patterns.
