DESIGN FOR LUXURY & CRAFTSMANSHIP
Jean-Paul Brkovic – Air Carbon in Product Design
Diploma project by Jean-Paul Brkovic
Mention Très bien Air Carbon is the topic of my graduation project. It is a promising new solution in the form of cutting-edge technology to combat climate change. My design research focused on the emission sources of materials that can be solidified as paper or polymers. This led to the creation of a structurally self-supporting frame concept made of carbon for a mirror. My design challenges the properties of air carbon and simultaneously explores its aesthetic value. I saw the growing need for new sustainable yet exquisite materials in the luxury industry. Many start-ups, institutions and researchers produce excellent but expensive materials. Through my design, I would like to build these essential bridges.
