A keyboard played in 3 dimensions

Here's how the Design Museum product of the year works

LONDON, UK.  Who plays keyboards knows: a sound can never be continuous. Every key provides a sound with a wavelength that “breaks” with any other. Here comes Seabord, a brand new concept of keyboard.



A short step back: the exhibit Designs of the Year just ended at Design Museum in London. It’s the yearly collection of cutting-edge innovation and original talents. The best of 2014 has been divided into categories (architecture, digital, fashion, etc.), end every category has its “winning” product.

Of course, we’re interested in the product category, won this year by Seabord Grand by Roland Lamb and Hong-Yeul Eom.




The innovation is in the keys: continuous sound is finally reality!
This is due to a new tactic control of the key, which allows moving the fingers in all 3 spatial directions. Also, keys change their shape: no longer rigid, but soft waves instead.

The style of the keyboard combines modern minimalism to traditional handcrafted quality.

The product has been designed by London-based studio Roli, since 2009 specialized in increasing the bandwidth of interaction between people and technology.

24 Jul 2014 A lamp you need to broken to customize

A lamp you need to broken to customize

The latest Dragos Motica's project: Slash Lamp

BUCAREST, ROMANIA.  We’ve found a new lamp with a “social” value, that is the customization opportunity by the final user.



In fact, a couple of months ago we talked with SID graduate Laura Modoni, Filò’s designer, a lamp which won FSC Italia 2013.

The new lamp we’re showing now comes from Romania and it’s called Slash Lamp. The designer is Dragos Motica Studio.

Slash Lamp is social because let the user decide (this is the reason of the name, “/”).
The cover, made of concrete, can be hit with an optional stone for customization. The product becomes an unique piece, “designed” by the user himself.
A lamp, apparently broken, becomes a new and original lamp.

Slash, mainly made of concrete and cork, is produced by Ubikubi.

The turntable plays wooden records

Voices from nature: Years, Bartholomäus Traubeck's project

MUNICH, GERMANY.  Design may be not only industrial, but also artistic. Today we want to tell you about Bartholomäus Traubeck’s work.



The aim of the young German talent (born in 1987) was to find a turntable able to “play” records coming from the trunks of the trees. We usually count their rings to know the age of a tree, but how do they sound?




SOME RECORDINGS



THE PROJECT “YEARS” - Bartholomäus analysed strenght, thickness and rate of growth of the rings of a tree. The collected data became the basis for a generative process that outputs digitized piano music. The mapping continued by considering the appearance of the tree (darker or lighter color, stronger or lighter texture, etc.).

Everything was then transmitted to a computer software witch elaborates the data and makes the trees play.

Modified turntable, computer, vvvv, camera, acrylic glass, veneer compound the final product. Dimensions are approx. 90x50x50 cm.
So... What’s your favorite track?
