Design proposals

Having agreed to focus on product opportunities for the export market utilising indigenous crafts/materials, design visualisations were prepared for lighting that would be manufactured using simple metal fabrication techniques and locally available materials such as bark cloth and jacaranda wood (Uganda); imported generic watch mechanisms with distinctive straps from materials such as ostrich/camel leather and Maasai textiles (Kenya); bamboo seating (Indonesia); and packaging solutions to enhance the eating experience of baklava (Turkey).
