dc.description.abstract The Implied Volume series of designs emerged out of research into how voluminous forms can be achieved in object design without the need for complex, costly and restrictive industrial methods. The design outcomes: RAK (coat stand), RIV (magazine rack) and TAV (dining table) were selected for exhibition in Global Local, Object Gallery Sydney, 4 January - 27 Feb 2005 (in conjunction with Import Export at Sydney Opera House). Both exhibitions, curated by Brian Parkes, were part of Sydney Festival 2005. The work was also included in the exhibition, Import Export: Global Influences in Contemporary Design, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 20 September - 4 December 2005. In object design, complex forms using plywood have been achieved through moulding by designers such as Frank Gehry, Karim Rashid and Jasper Morrison. My investigation was to develop voluminous forms without moulding. To this end I was inspired by the work of Frank and Lillian Gilbreth, 20th century human movement scientists from the USA. Wire models they created depicted the action of a specific production assembly line task. These models represented for me a three dimensional line in space that inferred movement, mass and purpose. In maintaining a link to the 'line', I used computer numerical controlled (CNC) technology as an industrial connection. To transform the line into voluminous forms, the methodology of interlocking flat sheet material was incorporated. The project demonstrates that complex and voluminous forms can be achieved using simple construction techniques in combination with technologies that have now become commonplace in small workshops and fabrication businesses.
