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?

15 May 2014 Barcelona, and less famous Gaudi's works

Barcelona, and less famous Gaudi's works

Discovering philosophy and products at his house-museum

BARCELONA, SPAIN.  Barcelona, Antoni Gaudi’s city. A simple tourist may just remember the incompleteness of Sagrada Familia and the curved building he designed. Gaudi deserves more attention, as architect and designer. Where can a good student start?



The first stage is his home within Park Güell, just few steps away from the historical center. “His” home means he designed and inhabited it.
The house is today a little museum where, by the rooms and their furniture, we can meet Gaudi’s design philosophy.

It’s the early 20th Century Spain. Gaudi is a well-known scrupulous architect and designer who wants to design and realize everything in detail (that’s why he wasn’t able to complete his masterpiece the Sagrada Familia).

The projects of the buildings have been elaborated more and more times, and we can say the same thing about the furniture, whose concept underwent a continuous process of study and improvement. The products in his house-museum testify it - they come from Casa Calvet, la Casa Batlló and Cripta de la Colònia Güell too.

Year after year, Gaudi was not influenced by the trends of his time (photo 3), but nature. This leads to new ergonomic solutions (photo 5), without unnecessary ornaments.

It was a successful study: Antoni’s final products are more functional and stable solutions compared to what existed before.

The benches of the Crypt, dating back in 1875 (photo 7), are a good example: their curved shapes provide each believer a greater intimacy during his relationship with God.

Products are perfectly integrated with their own living space: in just a few words, they meet the customers’ needs (he already understood it at that time)!
