the whole wide work

OKAY, LET’S START by stating the obvious: thanks to smartphones and laptops we can work anywhere Wi-Fi is available. As a result, coffee bars, hotel lobbies, train stations and airport lounges are populated by people staring into screens and talking on their phones. And those who aren’t grinding away in public spaces are carrying out the same activities at home. In other words, the world is threatening to become one huge workplace. But as we’ve seen with previous trends, this one is also creating its own countermovement. The trailblazers are coming up with workplaces that encompass an entire world. I mean more than just an office with a restaurant and a meditation room. For example, a couple of years from now, one of Amsterdam’s largest and fastest-growing enterprises – hotel and…

electronics brands are leading the charge in phygital interaction

TECHNOLOGY – It’s hard, in today’s digital age, to imagine a world without screens. But in the near future screens may no longer play an inherent role in our daily lives. Simple hand gestures, nods and shrugs will allow us to interact with the objects and spaces around us. Merely pointing to a wall might be enough to change its colour. During Milan Design Week, Japanese electronics giant Sony tapped into the digital reservoir with Hidden Senses, a multisensory exhibition outfitted with interactive designs specially created to enhance our lives. Spanning five rooms, the presentation envisioned what might happen if digital and design were to dovetail seamlessly. The outcome was an interactive, sensory-rich experience pulsating with fresh phygital possibilities. Staged as individual case studies, the displays featured digitally enhanced objects that engaged…

the future of 3d printing looks familiar

In an unlikely relationship between heritage and technology, architecture-engineering firm EDG came up with a software solution that 3D prints moulds for architectural decoration. The project, Modern Ornamental, was inspired by the multitude of buildings being demolished because of a lack of funds for restoration. EDG software can help to salvage centuries-old stonework and to create brand-new embellished façades. edgnyc.com Visitors to SXSW 2018 had the opportunity to watch online food database OPEN MEALS produce a kitschy piece of pixellated sushi. Concealed within nigiri-shaped gel cubes is technology that utilizes a vast digitized food database and a specialized 3D printer that can send food files from Tokyo to Texas and from Earth to outer space. With the popularization of this technology, Open Meals envisions a bright future for universally accessible food production. open-meals.com TECHNOLOGY…

novel fastening methods liberate makers from nuts and bolts

For its first presentation at the Salone del Mobile, Spanish brand Nagami showcased a seating collection designed by the likes of ROSS LOVEGROVE and Zaha Hadid Architects and made with the company’s digital 3D-printing software. Lovegrove’s Robotica TM combines the natural geometries of botany with the hyper-precise capabilities of electronics. rosslovegrove.com The ambitious project of Italian car manufacturer XEV and 3D-printing company POLYMAKER resulted in LSEV, the first 3D-printed electric automobile. The lightweight high-grade plastic used to make the vehicle encouraged the engineers to reduce the number of printed components from over 2,000 to 57. This combination of mass-scale manufacturing and easily accessible design can be adapted to the operations of countless other industries. polymaker.com Utrecht-based collective ZWARTFRAME exploits the physics of nature in Conflict, a set of self-fastening materials engineered from metal and…

not just for nerds: why designers should brush up on blockchain technology

A design by BENJAMIN HUBERT of London studio Layer, Moroso’s Tape collection takes its cue from the ‘athleisure’ sector. Constructed using polyurethane tape, the flexible furniture range employs binding techniques typically used by sports brands to manufacture gear such as ski jackets. The collection, which took an entire year to develop, utilizes fabrics from Kvadrat. Hubert reduced waste by repurposing scraps of textile that are normally discarded during the upholstery process. layerdesign.com FAYE TOOGOOD’s modular ABCD seating system is held together with rope. On show at Milan’s Palazzo Litta, the British designer’s four oversize cushions can be assembled to form chairs and sofas. Sturdy lengths of rope create ‘seams’ in canvas upholstery fabric from Japanese textile brand Takeyari, enabling the cushions to be secured in place. Resembling bloated alphabet letters, ABCD lives…
