"I am often intrigued by narratives and meanings found in our relationship with objects and the environment. Through research and observations, I often gather insights that inform and build upon this constant discovery. By translating these discoveries into design, I hope to bring about delightful realisations, surprise and wonders in relationships between people, things and our environment."

Ascend Cane Tip

For the elderly, having to use the walking stick feels like it will lead to a deterioration of health. But that is not the case! A walking stick is meant to help increase their physical capacity.

Ascend is an adaptive cane tip that senses the walking information of the elderly and gives feedback in a form of an app for the elderly to show them the positive effects of using a walking stick. This data can then be shared with the physiotherapist and they can also use it to aid them to understand more of the patient’s progress and recovery.

Wea'ved Clothes Rack

Project done with Ng Wenxin and Francesca

Wea'ved clothes rack was conceived through exploration of the notion of what is a soft joint. Soft and flexible nylon strings held the wooden rod and surfaces together, creating a tension which results in a structure and function.
