Class assignment - Design Principles I : Rough out the overall form of a three-part Bluetooth speaker using a metaphor to guide the design.

Metaphor: In the same way that a thunderstorm envelops our surroundings, so should our music fill our environment. A wireless charging pad encourages the user to put their phones (representing themselves) in a subordinate role beneath the speaker, mirroring the sense of scale we experience when being dwarfed by the power of the storm and allowing the user to be fully immersed in the natural environment, distraction-free.

Model: pink foam (insuperior to blue foam), gesso
