Studio10.5 is a small design office with a broad range of design related skills needed for succesful product and website development. We are accustomed to working with small design bureaus or middle to small businesses. Small design bureaus with good ideas often need practical technical support is realise their designs (this can pertain to both products and websites). Middle to small businesses need creative designers that also acknowledge and respect practical factors like budget constraints and target audience. In short, Studio 10.5 supports creatives and provides creative support.
Studio10.5 services include webdesign, CAD support, and other various design related work.
CAD (computer aided design) is an important part the product development process. Studio10.5 offers both 2D CAD services and 3D CAD services.
2D CAD or technical drawings are essential in communicating your product specifications to manufacturers. Studio10.5 works with Autocad compatible software.
3D CAD is a multipurpose design aid. 3D computer models can be used early on in the design process to spot technical problems that might not be apparent in two dimensional drawings. Professional renderings of concepts are ideal for use in presentations and brochures increasing the likelihood of attracting serious investors or clients. Specific models can be used for finite element calculations necessary for the engineering and manufacturing optmisation of products. 3D models are also necessary for rapid prototyping (3d printing). Studio10.5 works with Solidworks or Sketchup, depending on the client's needs.
Studio10.5 supports clients in developing their ideas and develops ideas independently. In addition to web and CAD services, this support can include aid in further developing product concepts, creating a corporate identity and making illustrations for use on the website or other graphic purposes.

daisy chain chair
Human behaviour in public space leads one to a variety of paradoxes, one example being the simultaneous need to belong, and have privacy.
Furniture in these spaces are subject to such paradox. These table/chairs provide both. They have an open structure which does not "box" the space in, yet serve as barriers, their high backrests making it very difficult (and painfully obvious) for someone to look at the screen over the user's shoulder. They are simple, robust, stationary, group dependent and not overly comfortable... catering to the needs of public spaces.
the taste is in the cup
For many Asians, rice, their staple food, is synonimous with prosperity. Little wonder that it is found in one of the most common Chinese dinnerware motifs... almost as a blessing that the vessel may always be filled.
Rice is also used to make o-sake, a japanese alchoholic beverage. It is commonly served in a decanter with matching cups. This particular set is made, like the common dinnerware, to reflect its connection with rice through shape and texture...
fire and water
Soap got its name, according to Roman legend, from Mount Sapo. Offerings were burnt there, smoke a means of reaching the gods. Fat from animal sacrifices mixed with ashes and then washed into the clay of the River Tiber. Women began to seek out these deposits when they realised that it made their washing easier. This mythi makes a connectino between spiritual and physical cleanlinees.
This soap product with an herbal core was developed to be either used to burn as fragrant incense or to be used as nurturing scrub.
bringing the outdoors in
Fond memories of a stereotypical picnic blanket was the basis of this design exercise. It investigates the possibility of extending a two dimensional blanket into a three dimensional basket without losing its "checkerd" appearance. The result is picnic equipment for indoor use.
