less touchscreens, more touch

How can physical stores remain relevant in a digital age? For retailers, it’s the mother of all questions. In Frame Lab we discover that the answers are beginning to find direction. Although store closures are the order of the day, we now know that brick-and-mortar shops are not going to disappear. But the widespread notion that physical stores cannot exist without screens that provide access to the internet – an opinion held by many only a few years ago – is not the answer. Today there’s a certain consensus with regard to touchscreens in stores. Tablets? Floor-to-ceiling displays? Don’t do it. When people take the trouble to go to a store, the last thing they want is to be confronted with screens. Main reason: we already spend too much time staring…


Despite being drawn to architecture and landscapes, FULVIO GRISONI declares fashion photography his ‘calling’. Born in Trieste, the Italian sees his work appear regularly in such glossies as Elle, Grazia and Vogue. Naturally drawn to the human figure, he visited Slovenian designer Nika Zupanc for ‘A Day With’. Italian writer MONICA ZERBONI specializes in architecture communication and criticism. After bouncing from Milan to the Netherlands and Germany as an editorial correspondent, she arrived in Rome, where she currently resides. Zerboni uncovers the lessons learned by Piero Lissoni on page 60. ‘Team Sabine and team Floor complemented each other well, improvising and brainstorming how to best combine materials and products – and in which location’ FLOOR KNAAPEN Photographer and stylist FLOOR KNAAPEN is a regular fixture in the creative scene, shooting portraits for well-known…

mark laban takes a primitive approach to digitally aided manufacturing

PROCESS – The beauty of handmade furniture is undermined by the laborious journey an artisan must take to master woodworking techniques, plus the difficulty of manufacturing the pieces on an industrial scale. The dilemma has led to the growing prevalence of robots replacing humans in a multitude of trades. Mark Laban’s Digital Daiku project acts as yet another example of machines infiltrating the realm of design. Laban’s Rustic Stool is his interpretation of a Japanese teahouse with linear supports and a curved maple roof. Laban called on computer-aided modelling to replicate hand-carved details and entrusted traditional work done by mallet and chisel to the expertise of a CNC milling machine. The stool’s smooth woodgrain surface is disrupted by a relief pattern produced by the designer’s (intentional) experimentation with the presets…

addressing politics and society in today’s world, design miami exhibitors infuse their works with attitude and criticism

NIEK PULLES XXX chairs by Portland-based designer Niek Pulles, presented by Chamber of New York, exemplify the Dutch creative’s unabashedly camp style. Composed of leftover pieces of foam and car seats, the spiky thrones seem to anticipate their place in a post-apocalyptic future. heyniek.comchambernyc.com REVIEW – The 2016 edition of Design Miami reflected the turbulent political atmosphere at home and abroad. A far cry from the mid-century-modern vibe of previous editions, the fair was chock-full of loud colours, kitsch and jarring shapes. New works revealed how contemporary designers are dealing with the rise in violence, environmental degradation, recent political referendums, elections and other issues of collective concern. Designs by celebrated masters of bygone revolutionary periods were offered as hauntingly realistic reminders of the past. Highlighting the collectors’ fair was an eclectic range of…

mit researchers pump up origami to blow up the packaging industry

MATERIALS – A team of MIT Media Lab researchers is expanding the potential of origami, literally. The Aeromorph collection starts with sheets of paper, plastic or textile into which a geometric pattern of seams is pressed by manual, thermal or robotic means. Each patterned sheet is subsequently inflated, giving it a network of air-filled passages. After inflation, the pinched pouches are connected and layered to achieve complexly folded forms. A computer program allows the designer to experiment and to fine-tune shapes and patterns in a simulator. When the desired result emerges, it can be produced with the help of digital fabrication files. Although the technology turns out a double-curved origami crane without breaking a sweat, the group has its sights set on applications for a host of fields, including the…

each one different, sebastian herkner’s side tables are made of 100% waste

MATERIALS – It took Studio Sebastian Herkner over a year to develop the Font series together with furniture brand Pulpo and German manufacturer Magna. The reason behind their lengthy process was a desire to create and use a completely new material. Although Glaskeramik is made out of recycled glass, it has the appearance of something far more precious. When combined with a special fusing technology, the waste product – left over from industrial glass production – forms solid slabs that can be cut and polished in the same way that sculptors and designers work with various types of engineered or natural stone. Glaskeramik offers a wide range of applications, but Herkner is the first to transform the eco-friendly material into a furniture collection of which no two pieces are alike.…
