  • furniture for everybody II

    Well-being, Industrial Design

    The project is developed by an academic group of the Industrial Design Center of Uruguay. The development team includes Industrial designers, (teachers and professionals) and advanced students. The team members are DI Irene Maldini (teacher), DI Alvaro Heinzen, and the students are Pedro Santoro, Agustín Visca, and Pablo Gaione. The system was developed as an open source design project and released under the Creative Commons licence, in order to allow a cheap and evolutive system.

  • Furniture for everybody.

    Well-being, Industrial Design


    Tocomadera - (I touch wood) is a project that grew from the idea that many public programs about housing tend to forget the furniture and it's vital role in the use of homes. Many homes are given without furniture and the lack of it restricts the use of the new homes.

    Besides this we seen that there was a need for simple but efficient furniture that was easy to develop to help in some crisis (floods, tornados) to re-furnish the homes quickly with a resticted budget.

    Based on the experiences of organized and guided self construction that are very popular in our country by the cooperative housing sector, we developed a furniture system that allows a family or a group of families to develop cheap but durable furniture out of solid wood for the home or the social spaces in their communities.

    The system could be built in small series without high investment in tools but it could easily be translated into a high volume industrial product in order to attend demand peaks, that could result form floods, fire. or tornadoes. All the system relies on a simple joint and a few wood sections. Simple and clear manuals are given to help the development of a project to furnish a home or a community place by people with very little technical knowledge.

    The product images are available through tocomadera's blog and we will publish the manuals for each product of the system soon there.

  • What's the image that opened your eyes to human rights?

    Communication, Audio/Visual Design


    WITNESS (where I work) uses video to document and expose human rights violations - but at one time or another we've all experienced the power of visual images to make us feel what someone else feels, to see with their eyes, to be inspired by their courage in the face of oppression. So we've been asking our family and friends to record a 60-second video or post a comment answering this simple question: "What image opened your eyes to human rights?" You can talk about a a video or a photo, a news report or a mobile phone clip, when you were young, or quite recently, something uplifting or something depressing. At WITNESS we asked our staff that question, and this is the result:

    It generated quite a response online, and you can see some of the responses here:

    Hub UDHR60

    The incomparable Marissa Feinberg suggested I post this to Design21 to see if you all might be interested in contributing the images that impacted on you...

    We would be totally delighted to welcome the Design21 community to be part of this campaign. You can do it in a variety of ways - by video, ideally, by posting a comment, by blogging about your choice, by forwarding this on to 5 friends or colleagues you think might want to share their choice too:

  • Recycle - A 'Soap' Story

    Communication, Communication Design


    Soso Designers from France designed these packaging concepts for Designboom's Reinvent competition and incidentally won the first place in the packaging category. Cleaning products generate lot of wastes. In this concept, MR CLEAN becomes a company which actively takes care of environment. The designers enhanced the shape of classical liquid multipurpose cleaner, spray multipurpose cleaner, and dish washing detergent bottles, in order to invite consumers to keep and fill them at home. After the bottle purchase, the client will only buy concentrate refill pack to dilute it with water, and throw it after use in the recycle bin. These thin refill refer to the formal shape of cleanings products, instead of real bottles clients will buy images as a memory of them. I liked this concept because it offers a message to recycle while not compromising on the punch required to attract customers. Plus, while the idea of refills is not new, the idea of shaping the refills in the exact form of the original packaging is, and that ads that extra charm.
