Post-Disaster Automotive Application: Backup Generator

(8 years ago)
The Times' Wheels blog highlights an interesting side effect of auto manufacturers' recent developments with electric cars: Their utility as a domestic source of emergency backup power. Companies have been working on this for years, but it's received little fanfare until lately, when with the tsunami in Japan and the more recent Hurricane Irene lit the proverbial fire under the proverbial asses.The idea behind V2G, or Vehicle to Grid technology, is simple: Your houses loses power when the grid goes down, and then you plug the car into your house. Nissan and Mitsubishi are said to be accelerating the rollout of these systems, while Toyota currently has one in the market. A Japanese-market-only Toyota hybrid van already has a standard AC outlet in it that customers bereft of electricity plugged into after March's tsunami.Toyota says they'll add the plug to Japanese-market-only Priuses for 2012, but has no plans to bring it to the 'States. Perhaps the results of Hurricane Irene will change their minds. In the meantime, the Times highlights a story they did on an American Prius owner who already hacked his Prius to power his house—way back in 2007.(more...)

Core77 Design Award 2011: Herman Miller SAYL Chair, Winner for Furniture/Lighting

(8 years ago)
Over the next months we will be highlighting award-winning projects and ideas from this year's Core77 Design Awards! For full details on the project, jury commenting and more information about the awards program, go to Core77DesignAwards.comDesigner: fuseproject - Yves BeharLocation: San Francisco, California, USACategory: Furniture/LightingAward: WinnerHerman Miller SAYL ChairThe Herman Miller SAYL chair combines innovative technology and high design in an affordable breakthrough chair that sets new standards of performance, quality and appearance. SAYL has a full-suspension back that is literally frameless, giving it both unique support and an iconic form.We took an eco-dematerialised approach, removing excess materials while maintaining a high level of quality. In completely re-thinking every design element, we created a better, smarter chair that sets a new standard for performance and aesthetics. By eliminating as much material as possible, we shaped each functional piece to be beautiful, expressive and tactile, revealing structural innovations like the Y-tower and ArcSpan as critical elements in the ergonomics and design aesthetic.One of the distinguishing elements of SAYL is its frameless full-suspension back. Different degrees of tension are infused into the injection-molded back's proprietary material, providing comprehensive support. The 3-D intelligence that this design provides lets the chair adapt to individual shape and movements.The arc of the suspension back[..]

Biology Begets Concept Chair

(8 years ago)
"Dolly"Stockholm-based illustrator and designer Tomas Ekström latest creation as Kallbrand is a collection of furniture inspired by the discovery of cloning. The top two-thirds of each piece resemble a balloon animal, propped up on skinnier, vaguely sheepish legs."Cheviot"Slim crossbeams are painted to match the top portion."Hebridean"The tongue-in-cheek press release reads like a mad-lib (based on an original piece of research Ekström credits to C.T Evans and S. Vos.):STOCKHOLM, Sweden – August 30th, 2011 – Dolly, a not so regular chair, was born on July 5th, 2009, at the home of Kallbrand in Stockholm, Sweden. Her birth, not revealed to the public until August 30th, 2011, sparked controversy instantly, because Dolly was the world's first chair to be cloned from an adult cell of a Sheep. Considered one of the most significant Design breakthroughs ever, Dolly's birth and subsequent survival proved that sheep cells can reprogram themselves into a new being. The man that created her, Tomas Ekström, hoped to create a chair whose design was genetically young forever, rather than prematurely out of style. However, when Dolly was reported to have been euthanized on February 14th, 2113, nearly 104 years after her birth, concern was raised that her classic design was caused because her cells were in fact timeless; she also had premature arthritis. Chairs can normally live to 11 or 12 years of age, and a classic design is not common in younger chairs. There[..]
