Ben SillenceProduct Design BSc
With an experience within the industry of taking designs from concept to shopfloor, and a desire to produce creative and elegant solutions, I have been inspired and filled with enthusiasm by my time at Brunel – not only by professionals, but most importantly by my peers. This has encouraged me not only to design products that are creative in their solutions, but also that embody individualism and personality.
SandSafe is a simple and elegant solution for protecting ones possessions against theft while on the beach. Once pushed into the sand, SandSafe increases its surface area and will resist a pulling force of over 30kg, providing an ‘anchor' to which a steel net, containing the user's possessions, is padlocked. A tamper-proof mechanism allows the user to retrieve the product from the sand and reuse it.
