This week we turned our Instagram account over to designer Wei Young for a behind the scenes look at his creative process and the making of our Drift Collection. Here’s a peek at what’s been happening.
Hi Instagram friends! My name is Wei Young. I am a product designer based in #NYC. I recently designed a new collection for Nambé called Drift. This week I take over @nambe to share some of the creative process behind developing this new collection. I’m excited about Drift and I hope you’ll be too! -@weiyoungdesign
From inspiration to sketches, Wei shares it all. Make sure to follow along with us as he offers different uses for each piece in the collection.
These are my concept sketches for the Drift Collection. I knew that Nambé’s signature metal alloy would look amazing with a dune like texture. The top surfaces would get a wavy relief that would mimic the movement of water and the drifting of sand dunes. The overall form factor should be soft, sensual and most importantly functional. -@weiyoungdesign
