The whole device consists of 30 main bone models and 3 groups of large-radian curves. Through multiple layers of woven and criss-cross transparent films, an interface of dynamic tension was folded up, with the whole space filled with flowing dynamic. Between blends and conflicts, there would come into being various function spaces, such as entrance, wall, ceiling, window, desktop or seat area. Multi-layer open combinations are the new representation and interpretation of internal and external open sites that interact both inside and outside.
The bioLogic team explored how bacterial properties can be applied to fabric and formed into living interfaces between body and environment. They found novel ways of using Natto bacteria, which move in response to humidity change. The team harvested Natto cells and applied them to fabric with custom 3D printers.The cell-infused fabric was used to make sport garments. As fabric in the suit reacts to perspiration, tiny vents over bodily heat zones open and close allowing for rapid cooling. In fall 2015, these suits featured in a live ballet performance.
Dark Side is a space-inspired range of seamless recessed luminaires made of gypsum and concrete. Turning on the light gives an extra feeling of spherical volume for central part of the luminaire highlighting its relief and surface bump by LEDs ring. Use of color and color temperature of LEDs coupled with different concretes and proportions gives a range of luminaires. The idea is to bring a calm of a cosmic space into wild contemporary life by delighting your eyes with play of light and misty shadow, natural textures and reliefs contrasting with flat surface.
Svalbardi is harvested from icebergs freshly calved off glaciers in the remote Polar region of the Svalbard archipelago, 1000 kilometres from the North Pole. The pristine ice, up to four thousand years old, melts into water so pure it is almost mineral free. The design had to convey the unique source and purity of the water. Keeping the graphics to the minimum allows the bottle and water to evoke the stillness and beauty of this Arctic landscape. The addition of a gift tube is unusual in the bottled water market and singles out Svalbardi as a unique purchase.
