I joined the 3rd year of Product design after completing a HND in Furniture design.
Although I enjoyed furniture design and my work from both years was exhibited in the Manchester Furniture show, I felt as though I lacked anything more than basic knowledge in the design world. I wanted to branch out and focus on more than just furniture.
During this last year of study, I have concentrated on creating a multifunctional children’s toy that is both playful and educational for use during and post-pandemic.
Children have taken the biggest hit during the pandemic; they’ve been isolated away from their peers and lost a year of their education, which has had a negative effect on their development. I wanted to give back something that would ease the pressure of being indoors for long periods of time without taking up any space from the home. For more information, please look on my website.

Lumi is a multifunctional children’s toy that adapts into many different elements of play. Play helps a child develop their abilities and make sense of the wider world around them.

Lumi isn’t just a box, it’s a box of possibilities. It helps children to thin outside the box in terms of play and unlocks their imagination.

Deanielle has been awarded 'Highly Commended' for the UoC Vice Chancellor's Choice Award for Product Design 2021.
