A Product Design project in Fargo, ND by Brad Benke of Stahl Architects
Nerds Rejoice! RoboChair is foldable lounge chair that doubles as wall art--it's functional art! Unlike most folding chairs that get stored in a closet or tucked away when not in use, RoboChair hangs proudly on your wall with an easy mounting bracket. RoboChair is less than 1.5 inches thick when hanging and folds into a sleek lounger that is sure to liven up any room of the house. Each one is custom labeled with a unique name and binary equivalent of a product number. Finally a modern folding chair that is fun! Go
A Technology project in Istanbul, Turkey by Reed Duecy-Gibbs
Open Urban is an open crowd sourced map and forum on urban development. It is a space for civic collaboration, a venue for debate, and an outlet and archive of information. It uses crowd sourcing technology as a means to inform and empower. We want people to understand how their cities are changing and to support their active participation in that change. Go
HOME PROJECT 2012
A Public Art project in London, United Kingdom by Julia Vogl
HOME is a temporary public art project, audio, visual and participatory, sited in the diverse neighborhood of Peckham in South East London. It is a self-initiated cultural olympiad project. This art work seeks to investigate what locals consider makes a place or community home. A year after the riots, this project aims to foster a fun and productive conversation about what it means to be living in Peckham in 2012. With the pressures of the London administration trying to enforce pride for Londoners during the Olympics, this project is about having an honest conversation asking if residents are proud of where they live- and why or why not.
