May 21st / Today our Y10 Product Design students visited Ikea.  Hannah Raymond-Jackson and Rhiannon Denham tell us more …

Today our class went on a trip to IKEA in Milton Keynes. In lesson one, we finished researching products that we wanted to look at in more detail in the store. The class was mainly looking at coffee tables and lampshades, which included modular structures. When we arrived at the store, we began by briefly looking around and taking photographs of what we thought we could incorporate into our own designs. While we were walking around we answered the questions that we could not find out online about the products, for example: how they fit together or how they are packaged. The day was very useful for our coursework, as now we have more knowledge about modular structures and flat packed furniture.  It was also very enjoyable.
