HANDLE QUESTION
 
ANTHROPOMETRIC DATA
The Art Deco container seen below, is for holding small items such as pieces of jewellery. You are to design a handle to aid carrying. The box and handle will be manufactured as separate pieces. The handle must be designed, based on the anthropometric data (measurements). Surface ‘A’ is where the handle will be positioned. The handle must to Art Deco in style.
 
 
 
ONE POSSIBLE ANSWER
 
I have designed a handle with two sunburst styles ‘ends’. The ends have been drilled (blind holes), so that the rail stays in position, when the ends are bolted in place.
The handle is positioned centrally on the top of the lid. The bolts that hold it in place, screw into the ends
 
   
The final design shows the handle fitted to the lid of the Art Deco container This means that the container can be picked up easily.
The ends are spaced 100mm apart, based on the 90mm anthropometric measurement. This allows comfortable holding of the handle.
