The Wonderful Everyday, Trip to Ikea

29th September 2022

Year 11 Product Design students need to research, design, manufacture and evaluate a final product for a client of their choice for their Non-Examined Assessment in GCSE Product Design.

Mr Mitchell took the current group on a trip to IKEA to conduct some primary research for these projects.

Students were looking at compact furniture, products for caring for animals, and workstations for Working From Home, gathering primary information to form part of their portfolio and examining different mechanisms, joints and products that could be used in their final designs.

Of course, it was important to experience the iconic Swedish meatballs during the trip, as well!
