    Studio Libertiny’s The Honeycomb Vase

    This vase’s intention is to push boundaries of conventional design by defying mass production and enabling nature to create what would typically be considered a manmade product. Each piece of work will be a one of kind because bees will not produce exact same hives every time. However, I think its irony that it takes 40,000 bees to make each piece of work and call it “collaborated” with them.

    Transportation Design


    The problems that are caused by current transportation system, Increase of pollution level CO2, Increase of traffic, Lack of public transportation, Depleting the natural energy resource

    The invention of vehicle was fascinating to the people. People could move comfortably and quickly by using a vehicle, but at the same time it wounds the environment. The number of car increase annually, because of the population growth. The public transportation system around the world is also the problem. Usually the cities have the train or bus, therefore the car is necessary for the outer cities. People search for bigger car for their family and work. This cause car traffic to become worth, lack of parking area and creates more Co2. Co2 is the compound of two chemical oxygen-atoms, which affects the balance of the temperature and pressure around the earth’s atmosphere. This issue is known green house effect. As the balance of the atmosphere loses the control, the more sunlight energy hits the earth and end up increasing the temperature of the earth. When the temperature rises, environment changes, and the lives in nature start to become perplexed and die. As the nature-cycle loses the balance, it will also effect on human. The increase of car also vanishes the natural energy resource, gas. Gas is not unlimited, and it will be soon enough to deplete completely. Many organizations have been developing the alternative for gas; however it has not been successful...

    1.Barrionuevo, Alexei. "Honeybees, Gone With the Wind, Leave Crops and Keepers in Peril." The New York Times 27 Feb. 2007: 1.

    This article introduces the problem of bee disappearing which now researchers call “colony collapse disorder”. Because of importance of bees in agriculture, this problem has direct effect to human beings. The reason of disappearance is still mysterious, thus the article suggests some possibilities of cause, which are stresses, or mites. This article is helpful to me because it provides me facts of the main problem.

    2.Horn, Tammy. Bees in America : How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation. New York: University P of Kentucky, 2005.

    I thought it is important to know history of bees in America because one of the most affected country on this issue is the United States.

    3.Revkin, Andrew C. "Bees Dying: Is it Crisis Or a Phase?" The New York Times 17 July 2007: 3.

    This article questions this whole phenomenon of “bee disappearing” is a real threat to our nation or just a phase that will disappear. I thought that this article relates to most of our behavior about this problem but even in this article admits large declination in hive populations during past few years.

    4.Watanabe, Myrna E. "Colony Collapse Disorder: Many Suspects, No Smoking gun." Bioscience 58 (2008): 384-88.

    This article is the most recent journal I found on this issue, thus I thought it has reliable facts about colony collapse disorder.

  • Hi there,

    Im new to the forums, Thought I would start off by saying hi!

    My name is Julian - I'm a final year Graphic Design student from AUT university in Auckland, New Zealand (Bachelor Graphic Design).

    For my exhibition project, I am looking into the area of ethics and design. Specifically targeting the ideas of ethical responsibility to my fellow peers the next generation of graphic designers.

    Im looking to form ethical values through narrative. Showing through example, (positive and negative) rather than telling people what to do.

    Therefore, If anyone has had any experiences on a job where they have taken a personal stand in favor of their ethical and moral values, or where they have wished they had in hindsight, or even just had a feeling that what they were doing was wrong, I'd love to here from you.

    Private message, email or just reply to me in this thread, I would be extremely thankful for any feedback.

    Depending on the story, I would like to conduct an interview in the form of an electronic survey (Email) or brief description of the job. These will be used on a 'offline' website at the exhibition. I will respect anyones wish to stay anonymous.

    Once again thank-you for helping me spread the idea of responsible ethical design, I think this is a very important issue that the next generation of graphic designers must be aware of.

    Cheers Julian

  • Condensing City

    Environment, Environmental Design


    Boat Quay, Singapore

    Step aside from the bustling flow of tourists to the back lanes of Boat Quay and you will find something really phenomenal: a city of air-con condensing units. Narrow streets are filled with humming noise and hot air generated from those little boxes. These old shophouses were originally designed for residential or small business purposes, once converted into a restaurant or a bar, a good M&E engineer is needed in order to keep the building looking good from all angles.
