This is a self directed project I completed over 3 days from concept to renderings for a #renderweekly design challenge (S6:W12 | Form study: sweep). The brief I set for myself was to develop a rugged unisex hairdryer that manages the intersection between the handle and main body in a harmonious organic way. Although I tend towards clean geometric forms I am exploring using compound curvature for detailing and intersections because the combination of minimalism, simple geometry and more organic forms can help to create a modern yet timeless aesthetic.
I had recently been practicing how to achieve photorealism in Keyshot renders and applied the techniques I learnt here. I wanted these renders to be simple, uncluttered and highlight the surface intersections and industrial design without becoming artistic so used unweathered materials and a uniform background colour for the renders.
