Here they are. Let us know what you think.
coco and her assignment
I am coco, an industrial design graduate student at NCSU. I am an intern at Montie Design this winter. I am now working on the outdoor wood bench design. This bench design focuses on the customer need which has a hanger for people to put their back packs and their coat when they feel hot and a hook for people to hang on the garbage when they talk with their family member and take some snacks.
The following picture shows how the concept developed. Fist I have three different ideas about the bench and then narrow down to one idea. Secondly I started to have different styling about the concept and at last I decided the assembly method.
This is the outdoor bench. In order to matches the whole environment, the design comes from the tree branch and also matches the function of it.
The higher one on the right is the hanger of the coats or backpacks. The small one on the left is hook for people to hang on the garbage bag or other paper or plastic bags. The first purpose of this bench is setting around the camping fire. So at the bottom of the bench, there is a shelf for people to store the fire wood.
Hello, my name is Luca Harrell and I am currently a summer intern at Montie Design. As the winner of the 2012 Montie Gear student competition I’ve been asked to develop my contest submission into a product that will be added to the Montie Gear product line. I’m very excited about this opportunity and am equally excited to share my progress with you. Through weekly blog posts I’ll document the process of my product’s development from concept to prototype through pictures, sketches, and 3D models. In today’s post you can see how I kicked of the project with a project brief, a rough project plan, and research. Feel free to give feedback or comment on what you see. Hope you enjoy!

Montie Design has added to our ever-expanding line of Montie Gear outdoor equipment with the multi-purpose Tree Hook Archery Rest. This new tool for hunters and campers provides sturdy support, whether in a tree stand or campsite, for a bow, crossbow (without quiver), rifle with a sling, or pots, pans and other camp utensils.
Continuing in the Montie Gear tradition of products that are easy to carry and set up, the Tree Hook Archery Rest weighs just 6.9 ounces, with an even lighter 5.7-ounce version also available. This convenient tool has a one-inch strap accommodating trees up to 18 inches in diameter, measures 4.2 inches tall, and sticks out 5.16 inches from the tree once attached.
The Tree Hook Archery Rest is 100% American-made from .188 inch thick 5052 aluminum with an anodized finish available in either clear, black or olive drab. Its catch securely holds a camp lantern or parachute cord (commonly knowns as “550 cord”) and features high quality padding to give hunters support for a bow while not scratching the bow limb.
