The aim of this project was to derive an abstract form & geometry from nature and come up with a product inspired from the specific characteristics.
The project started with studying the rhinoceros, to look for a specific characteristics. Indian Rhinos have a really tough skin. Along with his heavy appearance, the armored skin plates on the rhino make him appear Robust.
The Indian rhinoceros have thick, silver-brown skin, which becomes pinkish near the large skin folds that cover its body. Its upper legs and shoulders are covered in wart-like bumps. It has very little body hair, aside from eyelashes, ear fringes and tail brush. Males develop thick neck folds
The next step of the project was to come up with a prodct inspired from characteristics of the Indian Rhinoceros and the 3D abstract. Considering physical and non physical attributes of Rhinoceros.
