The project developed a series of ecologically sustainable desktop accessories with a unique design for carrying andaccommodating office stationery. The trays are made by compression moulding leather. Through this project the designers have developed tools and processes that applies contemporary materials and manufacturing knowledge to an ancient technique. The project was undertaken as part of a collaborative research design project with Roderick Walden and Stefan Lie (UTS) investigating ergonomics, interface design and the interplay between operational elements in multi-functional design. The entire project, including the final design outcome was presented in an Exhibition titled 'Convergence' held in the DAB LAB Research Gallery at UTS. The exhibition demonstrated a connection between self-initiated design practice for multi-functional product types and practice-driven design research. The design (as exhibited) examines the connection between materials and structure using renewable resources and sustainable manufacturing methods. This, in connection with the research objective of understanding ways of converging a set of operational elements into singular units, has produced a unique design that demonstrates methods and approaches to design problem solving, collaborative design and self-initiated design practice.
