Women In Industrial Design Show 2014 in San Francisco

Women In Industrial Design Show 2014 in San Francisco

Although I had worked with Ti Chang, the spark behind the DUET, I met her for the first time at the IDSA’s Conference in Chicago (2013). One of our first conversations was about how there is little recognition and fame for Women in Design. Those at the conference will recollect her Individual Talk on the same subject and how passionate she was. I guess the fire thus ignited has resulted in the phenomenal Women In Industrial Design Show 2014, to be held in San Francisco.

My Affair With Korea

My Affair With Korea

My affinity and bias towards Korean designers is often reflected in the articles that I wrote for Yanko Design. So you can imagine my delight when I got the chance to visit the Korean Designers’ stand at the 2013 Munich Creative Business Week. Aside from the informative K-Design Talk (yes, after K-Pop its time to embrace K-Design), there were a couple of designers showcasing their works as a part of the design fest.

Product Design Days + Yanko Design RoadShow

Product Design Days + Yanko Design RoadShow

When I spoke with Scott Wilson, the force behind Lunatik and Tik Tok watches and asked him about the biggest flaw he saw in Kickstarter and other crowdsourcing platforms, he said finding a dependable manufacturer and a logistical supply chain for the product was the biggest drawback. Essentially, you may have a brilliant design, the seed funding, but no reliable support in the manufacturing process. Here is where Product Design Days and the Yanko Design RoadShow fit into your success story by overcoming this flaw.

Our Picks from the 2011 red dot awards!

Our Picks from the 2011 red dot awards!

Nearly 4500 entries were submitted for the 2011 red dot judges to review! After a meticulous, hands-on study of each submitted product they finally narrowed it down to 793 winners of the “red dot” award, 154 “honourable mention” award winners, as well as 59 “best of the best” awards reserved for well… the best of the best! We’re impressed that the judges tackled 4500 original entries when we could barely keep our hands off all 900+ winning designs! We did, however, manage to narrow it down to 10 that we just couldn’t keep our eyes off of…

Design with Unseen Waves

Design with Unseen Waves

This year, Milanese design fair Salone De Mobile turned 50 years young, & to celebrate, Ezri Tarazi & the d-Vision Group looked 50 years to the future to waves of a frequency currently undiscovered by man. This frequency, as they imagine it, is called the “ultra-gamma ray.” The five giant lighting structures represent the ray & change in hue & light intensity via the central station. Sure it’s whimsical, but it’s also a profound reminder that we’ve only just scratched the surface of possibility.

Smell on Display

Smell on Display

How do you show a smell?  No, I’m not talking about mirrored shelves at Sephora. I’m talking pure scent. En Esencia is an olfactory exhibition that seeks to answer this question by showcasing smells in two ways. In the first, the Pure Perception Room, “sniffers” stand under isolated boxes that are designated to specific scents. The perfume is then released, creating an untainted and pure olfactory experience for the user. The second showcase, the Lab Room, is the analytical and descriptive space of the exhibition where visitors can see the inspirations and formulas for individual scents.

Wartime Decor, Modern and Upscale

Wartime Decor, Modern and Upscale

The KALAB Exhibition features military surplus and “souvenirs” turned into enigmatic furniture and home decor. Born out of the Israeli conflict, there’s a strong mixture between military and civilian life – defining the culture. Vases made out of bomb shells, ashtrays made from extinct bullets and a sofa stacked like a dugout. It raises questions of security and confronts the idea of civilians playing the part of the soldier.
