Ben Alpers - Selected Work

Product Design

In Winter 2015, I designed and made a task lamp, as an exercise in expressing and developing my own distinct designer voice. From my initial design style I sought inspiration, and then designed and created a lamp product and experience.


Design and fabricated a protective and decorative casing for a glass water bottle. Glass is the safest and nicest material drink out of, minus its fragility and lack of insulation - my design sought to fix those problems.


With Prakash Lab research group, I helped design and prototype a portable, human-powered apparatus that can be used for "point-of-care" diagnostics as well as other aqueous chemical assays.
