Assignment:

Design a door latch that has interesting details.

Result:

As a short assignment for school we had to design a door latch. It was not necessary to be practical but the focus was more to make it attractive and look interesting. The first thing I did was making some drawings to see what forms were interesting. After that I made a mock-up model out of cardboard to see if the form was interesting enough.

When I studied the model I made, there were some sloppy aspects that were actually really interesting. One of them was that my model was crooked and there were on some places curves that had to be sharp edges. Because of the sloppy aspects I made a redesign and made my real a working model of a door latch.
