This is a design created for the University of Lincoln. The product is designed for Gao Ruibao, a fictional person who represents all 18 year olds living in china in the year 2018. In this project Gao needed a product designed for storage.
So what does an 18 year old living in one house with his parents need? His own private space. He already has a place like that when he goes to the gym, the swimming pool, school/university etc.
Lockers are very useful for creating a private storage area in a shared place. All it needs is to be converted to a more bedroom friendly version.
The final design is a locker for in-home use. The natural oak gives the locker a warm and natural appearance to blend into the interior. The lock makes the locker private and secure, which is accentuated by the cold and unnatural feel from the metal the lock is made of.
