Learn From It
Name 1 thing (per group member) that you have learnt from the designs that you have seen in the Red Dot Museum.

Lucas: I have learnt that no matter how dull the function/use of an object is, it can be made interesting and have aesthetic appeal.
Chen Ning: Sometimes you have to think out of the box to come up with innovative designs.
Xavien: The design of a product can be aesthetically appealing and be of good use at the same time
Keith: The designs there are great designs that the public has not learnt to appreciate.

Application
Take a picture of the design that your group likes most and explain how it relates to the project that your group will be working on.
This is the hope tree, basically an upsized version of the dew collector. We may be able to use the hope tree as a place to chain bikes to.
