Hello everyone, I am doing a project for a school where we were tasked to find an existing product, use the same or similar internals, and design a new outside for it or "re-skin" the product. I chose to do a lamp because I really want a furniture-esq product in my portfolio as I am passionate about furniture. I know a lamp isnt exactly furniture per-se, but I feel it fits in the general realm and I want to apply a furniture type brief to the project. My question is, what does a furniture design style brief look like? I attached a link below of competitive products that are in the same ballpark of what I am interested in. How can I make a project like this stand out in my industrial design portfolio?
Thanks in advance!
P.S. The objective is to not only design the product, but fabricate it as well, so I will have a good amount of building for the project which I believe will look good for a student portfolio project.
