BRIEF | Revive and evoke the essence and identity of a nostalgic aesthetic style, for a new contemporary product through reconstructing and analysing the aesthetic and semiotic qualities and features of a specific nostalgic aesthetic style.
My chosen product was a CD player due to the heavy relevance music had on the time. Various 60’s films such a Quadrophenia focus on the youth of the time and their need to have fun and rebel, which is what I wanted to work into my design. I wanted the CD player to look like it works like a record player which is why there is no CD tray, just a space for the CD on the top. This way you can see the CD being read giving the user more of a connection with the music.
Below you can see the final outcome which was created in Solidworks.
