Short movie about my lighter. It Illustrated assembling, modularity and process of fire ignition
Most of current lighters is boring 🙂 so i decided to design something different
My main objective for the new lighter concept is to refresh lighter’s image. Nowadays lighters are generally rounded corner rectangular shaped. My design discontinues remaining that image whilst persists its slender shape. However basic geometric shapes were always my favourite and they are endlessly fashionable. For example in early Middle Ages, in Picasso’s art and automotive industry. Therefore I decided that the triangular shapes will suit perfectly to this concept. In addition they enable to create more dynamic contours compared to the rounded shapes. Integration of the natural shapes such as quartz crystals with a modern vision of automotive industry is the main motive of my design. Therefore as a base form I have chosen octahedron. Each face is triangular and looks like two square pyramids attached base-to-base with apexes pointing up and down. An idea is to discard the orthodox shapes subsequently the customised lighters can be created meeting the individual requirements. An option of composing an individual design will let the lighter owners to give them a unique character.
