Studio Geneen's 16.5-pound Light Room

(8 years ago)
It's common knowledge that moving is one of life's biggest stresses so to think about packing all my furniture into a truck for a combined total weight of 7.5kg/16.5 pounds—the weight of a nice, single chair—is pretty exhilarating. Amsterdam-based Studio Geneen has created a conceptual collection of airy furniture, "reducing energy consumption during production and transport and of course, minimiz[ing] the amount of materials used in these products." Using high-tech textiles like Dyneema (gel-spun fiber), 3D printing and innovative construction techniques, the Light Room collection includes 2 chairs, a coffee table, stool and shelving unit. Read more about the specs for the Light Room collection after the jump and watch the video for inspiration for the "Gaudi Stool" below."Gaudi Stool"(more...)

Chairs that Start with a "B:" The Barbershop Chair

(8 years ago)
Here in downtown New York City I've noticed a resurgence of traditional barber shops, mostly kitted out in time-warp fashion. It got me wondering if anyone still makes the classic barbershop chair.I spotted the one above online, with the word KOKEN stamped into the metal footrest. Further investigation reveals there's a Japanese company that's been around since 1921, Takara Belmont, that makes a modernized Koken Legacy chair:(more...)

He'll have several hands-on prototypes to share, including a geodesic dome built from 3D-printed connectors and a brief music performance using mlrv, a software sampling instrument he designed in collaboration with /parallelogram/. The talk will conclude with some thoughts on process, a review of stimulating books to read, and some good ole' Q+A.Michael Felix is a design scientist concerned with the subtle interactions that occur between humans, nature, and technology. His interests lie more within the development of adaptive systems over pre-visualized concepts designed for aesthetics alone. This focus has grown from his attraction toward emergent processes—specifically the study of ecological systems and their effectiveness in gradually unfolding order and function. Through his work, he seeks to apply a similar living process towards[..]

World Water Day: Tippy Tap keeps it simple + saves water

(8 years ago)
Happy World Water Day! Tippy Tap has a simple design solution to a big problem affecting health and well-being in developing countries. Watch the video below to learn more about the Tippy Tap and build your own.The tippy tap is a hands free way to wash your hands that is especially appropriate for rural areas where there is no running water. It is operated by a foot lever and thus reduces the chance for bacteria transmission as the user touches only the soap. It uses only 40 millilitres of water to wash your hands versus 500 millilitres using a mug. Additionally, the used "waste" water can go to plants or back into the water table.Thanks to Pilgrim Films!(more...)

Shigeru Ban's Cardboard Disaster Relief Assistance

(8 years ago)
The challenges faced by the survivors of Japan's recent earthquake are manifold. While the gymnasiums they are being sheltered in can keep the worst of the elements out, in short supply is running water, electricity, heat, and food—not to mention privacy. The last point is significant because although Japan is a society with a reputation for being able to work well in groups, they also have a profound and well-defined sense of privacy, particularly where their personal living spaces are concerned. In Japan you simply do not swing by your neighbor's house to hang out the way you might here in the 'States, but now refugees are bundled one on top of the other.The architect Shigeru Ban, who was been developing structures made from cardboard and paper tubes for years, is undertaking an effort to get his cardboard partitioning systems into these gymnasiums.

Monster Review: The iPad 2, Part Two

(8 years ago)
Junior will understand why his drawings have been replacedBecause the iPad is such a versatile device, it's as difficult to predict what you'd use it for as it is to predict what you use your computer for, beyond a few generalities. As you might remember from Part 1 (Form Factor and the Smart Cover) of this review, I was testing out the new iPad 2 while awaiting Jury Duty, and unfortunately I was selected for a trial. This involves spending a lot of time in the courtroom and some downtime hanging out in the jury room. I quickly discovered one of my fellow jurors, who worked as a Geek Squad Manager, also had an iPad 2. While I've been an iPad user since the first iteration, Juror #1 was a first-time user.One week is not really enough for me to get a wide and representative cross-section of how the general iPad-using populace employs their devices, particularly when it's one week of mostly being locked in a jury room; but at the very least, I can tell you the differing ways in which both I and Juror #1 used ours, both in the building and at home, over the course of that first week.What I Use the iPad ForAs I mentioned, I've been an iPad user from early on, using the Wi-Fi only model. The iPad 2 I tested out had 3G so it added some functionality that was new to me. (more...)
