Design Inspiration

Covid-19 has highlighted the fragility of the relationship between the animal and human species. The worldwide rāhui has allowed nature time to rejuvenate. Humans have taken too much for granted to the detriment of the world’s ecology.
Conscious consumption, recycling and a wider appreciation of our fragile world are positive effects of the world’s recent pandemic events.
Sonar communication between whale species has been enhanced by decreased shipping traffic.
Component’s Whale Tail’s geometric lines represent the communication between whales. The base blues represent the ocean and the vibrant yellows, pinks and reds are warning signs to environmental crisis.
It is time to stop, rest and protect.
