The concept is a pendant lighting that cuts off the moment when an apple skin is peeled off without cutting it on the way. Since the part of the peel of the apple has become a shade, it leaks light like indirect lighting. In other words, the light from the gap of the spiral shade, gently illuminates the room. Furthermore, as the gap is evenly opened up and down, left and right, the structure is such that heat is not likely to stick. This lighting consists of three kinds of parts: shade, bulb, socket & cord, and the assembly process is very simple. The shade is made from aluminum as it is soft to bend and ease to processing metallic. The aluminum plate is bended with a bending roll machine, to make the spiral of this shade. In addition, the aluminum is processed as alumite treatment to make vivid red like an apple peel on the surface.

An emergency bag designed for babies & parents. The reason I design this bag is that it always happens a shortage of baby supplies when a natural disaster occurs, but there is no emergency bag for babies on the market. Thus, this bag would help babies and parents to improve their life in the emergency situation. The main feature of the bag is to turn into a cot. In busy place like a shelter, it is better to sleep a baby in a place with a wall such as a bed. Parents can protect their babies from surrounding noise and dust and can reduce the possibility of kicking or hitting them.

TRID, transformable furniture that can be used from birth to adulthood, with three different functions: cradle, bouncer and chair. It has two different rockers which give the user comfortable swinging movements and seating experiences. These curvatures are based on the research that a sharper rocker is comfortable for people with a smaller build while a more gentle rocker is comfortable for those with a larger frame. This furniture can be assembled in various shapes by yourself with a hex key, so this can be kept flat when not in use, saving cost and space for replacement. Therefore, the TRID is a multifunctional piece of furniture which can be continuously utilized by changing the application to the one suited to the growing process of a human.
