Kon Tako is a modular piece of furniture designed by NiV, an architecture firm based in Lleida. Starting from the original sketches by Jaume Nadal, I designed the assembling instructions in a vintage style that highlights its japanese inspiration. Also, I used a three-color scheme as a way to explain the differences between the piece's many elements. The whole composition is designed to be printed in a 50x50 cm format.
1. Some pictures and original sketches by the designer.
2. Starting from those skecthes, I did some preliminary ink drawings in order to have an idea of what the final result might look like.
3. Pencil drawings on tracing paper. In this step, I first drew the vignettes in their final print size. I also gave them a more precise geometry before switching to ink.
4. Some elements, such as the main axonometries, needed more than one step.
5. Once drawn in ink and scanned into my PC, I decided to use a three color scheme in order to: first, highlight the white structure over a shiny color background; second, show the differences between the different pieces and their function within the whole design.
6. Last, I tried the final composition in different color schemes.
