Rora’s Plush Night Light Proposal

“Soft Stone”

Cell Brooch
Two butterfly wings

The artwork of Kathleen Ryan inspires me. She uses different shapes and colors of stone to represent various forms of fruit decay. My mind was drawn to the many beautiful things found in the microscopic world, and I want to make an enlarged version of the cell, using buttons and LED lights to represent the vitality of cells.

I prepared two different fabrics and several buttons in different sizes to use in the cell brooch.

Samsung Galaxy S6 Teardown

Product Intro:

The Samsung Galaxy S6 is a line of Android-based smartphones manufactured, released and marketed by Samsung Electronics.

Although the overall design of the Galaxy S6 still features characteristics from prior models, its construction was revamped to use a metal unibody frame and glass backing instead of plastic. Samsung also promoted an improved camera, streamlined user interface, support for major wireless charging standards, and support for a mobile payments platform that allows the device to emulate the magnetic strip from a credit card.

Manufacturing Techniques:

The high-gloss color of the rear glass panel is from a nano-thin multi-coating process, which adds nano layers of multiple coatings giving both the front and back of the device a “rich, dynamic color that reflects light as it is viewed from different angles.”

Samsung details new manufacturing process for both the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge

TOOLS:

Tiny Strew Driver

Heat Gun (Helpful tool to melt the glue inside of the rear panel and front display)

INTEREST DESIGN ELEMENTS:

  • Metal Frame

Samsung S6 Midframe is equipped with high-strength 6013 aluminum which is typically used in products that require extreme durability such as aircraft fuselages, automobiles, yachts, and mountain bikes. Compare with existing smartphones normally use 6063 aluminum, it is 1.5 times stronger and 1.2 times more scratch-resistant than 6063 aluminum.

Samsung has produced the sleek frame of this masterpiece using a process of more than 20 precise and delicate steps. Procedures that help provide texture and enhanced durability include precision machining from extrusion, molding to integrate heterogeneous components, diamond cutting on the metal covers and anodizing. I haven’t think about the metal frame material and manufacturing information before I teardown this product. I found Samsung applied a technique to weld the antenna to the metal frame itself with ultrasonic welding for the Galaxy S6, makes the antenna more stable for the environment and resilient against external impact, while freeing up more internal space.After they realizing the thickness of the metal frame ultimately impacts antenna performance. This kind of material and manufacturing Technology ensure the high quality products.

  • AMOLED Display

AMOLED is a display technology and stands for Active Matrix Organic Light Emitting Diodes. It is a type of OLED display and is used in smartphones.

Super AMOLED is an AMOLED display that has an integrated touch function: Instead of having a layer that recognizes touch on the top of the screen, the layer is integrated into the screen itself.

Super AMOLED provides an exceptional viewing experience for you. It offers a wide range of colors with an incredible degree of color clarity which translates into far greater resolution.

Given its astounding 100,000:1 contrast ratio, Super AMOLED displays will automatically adapt to various lighting environments to make it easier on the eyes while providing great picture quality when playing games or watching your favorite multimedia.

AMOLED displays have great viewing angles you can clearly view the screen from a wide variety of angles. AMOLED screen made by special process, compared with ordinary OLED screen is thinner, lighter and more durable, in weight only one tenth of the ordinary OLED screen, greatly reducing the thickness of the phone. The application of flexible substrate makes the screen in the use of the process of impact resistance, not easy to break, as well as a unique bending, folding characteristics.

So when choosing the material for future design works, can consider use these two material and their manufacturing techniques which would be a lot helpful:)

Hi! I’m Rora Pan

Hi! I’m Rora, come from China and finished my foundation year in Beijing at the Central Academy of Fine Arts, then I transferred and graduated from the Cleveland institute of Art last year. During my undergraduate study, I have the skill in 3D modeling, rendering, model making, ceramic, glass making and also a little bit with interior architecture. After graduation, I started working at Spectrum diversified design and Tovolo as an industrial designer, you can find my design work at Create & Barrel, Magnolia, William Sonoma, even some grocery store like whole food, target:)

I have a sweet husky girl, welcome to hang out with Chuyi (her name)!!!

Excited to meet you all!!! My Instagram is: roraaa1998
