ANCHOR RAY

2017 // 10 weeks // 2 people

Bachelor project in collaboration with Noa

at KTH

THE TASK

To design and construct an anchor made of aluminium for the boat-accessories company NOA.  

THE IDEA

The idea was to construct an Ikea-solution anchor where the user assembled the product. By doing this creating a stronger bond between the user and the anchor as well as optimize the storage in stock and transport. 

 

ITERATIVE

PROCESS

RAPID PROTOTYPING 

The testing was simple yet effective. Creating a fast iterative process where theories concerning the blades ability to dig down into the seabed were tested. 

INSIGHT

CONSERVATIVE

The anchors of the market are heavy, bulky, take a lot of space and are hard to clean.  The users, instinctively,  see the weight of the anchor as the most important factor for an anchors ability to hold. 

THE SHAPE

The geometric shape of the anchor is designed to guide the anchor further down in the seabed the more force that is added. 

Prototype in scale 1:2
