Nowadays, the pollution of the earth’s environment has become more and more concerned by people. Every day, people are discharging all kinds of pollution to the environment. For examples, people emit various kinds of green house gases into the environment and this accelerates the phenomenon of global warming. Our human, producing variety kinds of waste every day, it seems like we never think about reuse of the waste. This situation makes the environmental pollution become more and more serious. Because of the current situation, the environmental awareness of human has begun to gradually strengthen. In order to protect the environment, there are three ways: reduce, reuse and recycle the waste. People started to use fewer resources and try to reduce the amount of waste generated. Besides, they recycle some of the waste and reuse the waste to make new things like using plastic bottle to make a pen container or using a pair of old jeans to make a handbag. This has a great help in reducing the environmental pollution. Waste utilization is becoming more and more popular and concerned among the people and obviously, this has a great advantage in protecting the environment of the earth. How does waste utilization could help people to reduce the pollution? How innovative and creative the human can be? Let’s explore during the working process.
The result we want to get
Our goal is to make an environmental-friendly product to reduce the pollution in our world. Therefore, we choose the thing which we usually throw it away to make the product in order to protect the environment and reduce the pollution so that this would let the earth get better. All in all, we come up with the product--- branch frame (the material of the frame comes from the dead branch which are hardly noticed by people).
The product is mainly made of dead branches, we want the product has a sense of natural, which means the product should not only has a succinct and nice appearance, but remain the original shape as much as we can as well.
It is used in our daily life,for instance, If you want to use something non-pollution and naturally to decorate your house or your dormitory, it would be your choice.
The product is ornaments frame which mainly made of dead branches. The main application of this product is to place the ornaments.In this case, it might be sold at furniture store.
Stick the frame on the board by using nail. After you stick the frame on the wall, you could put some ornaments on the frame. The frame if designed to decorate the house with natural sense.
The cost of the product should be no more than 100yuan. Because our product is mainly made of dead branches so the main material is free, besides, the orientation of our product is towards middle class.
In the case that the product is a new kind of furniture which made by dead branches and it is used to put on the ornaments, the price of the product won’t be high. Therefore, the target audience is middle class among young adults.(Young adults usually love this kind of innovation)
No more than 100yuan
Dead branches *4
Maximum recommended capacities
Larger than 1kg
This product should be strong to take some small decorations like small pots or lamps.
It also should not be easy to damage and should be quality so we should stick the branches firmly during the process of making this product.
It should be durable and artistic because it is a kind of furniture for decorating houses. In order to let it last forever, we think we will spray some preservation on the branch to prevent it from rotting .
The weight of the product should be light, and it will be very convenient for people to carry it if they want to change the place, so we decide to use dead branch as most of the component. The board which put on the branch should be light.
We should use the dead branch to build the frame because the dead branch is dry so the product is not easy to deformation.
To prevent the wood from molding, the best approach is spray paint, because the spray-paint has the rotting preservation ability.
As for design a durable and artistic house, the thing we should focus on is the design itself so that we could know what the design is trying to tell us. The design should depends on the product.
The key is to add wood glue when attaching pieces of wood to each other while sticking.
Be sure that nail in place to secure.
To make the product more stabilize, we should use the thread and glue to help the connection of the branches.
Design and Develop
Sketches of our final solution:
Construction in process
Draw the design paper
Gather the appropriate dead branches
Stripping bark off the branches
Trimming the branches
Rubbing down the branches with sandpaper
Use the thread to fix the branches around the trunk
Use cyanoacrylate glue to strengthen the stability
Spray paint around the preliminary finished product
Nail the small board on the wall(we use a big board to assume the wall)
Nail the preliminary finished product at proper place( under the small board)
Now you get a branch frame
0 （ comes from fallen trees ）
0(comes from decoration waste)
0(comes from daily life)
Achieve or not
No more than 100yuan
Large than 1kg
A carton of milk 250 ml
The maximum capacities are 15 cartons of milk, which is approximately 3kg.
Most of the expectations have been reached
Maximum recommended capacities is unexpected, we were going to stick the small board on the wall at first. However, we changed the plan to use the nails. That’s the reason why the maximum capacities are much larger than the expectation.
The appearance is not so delicate, there are too much blank space in the product. We decided to add some decoration on the product.
Basic on the original process, add the decoration.
Cut the broken CD-disc into pieces
Stick the pieces to the product by super glue
