Bodies in Motion is an immersive light installation created by Todd Bracher and Studio TheGreenEyl for Humanscale at Milan Design Week 2019.
The installation was inspired by Humanscale’s history as pioneers in human factors and natural ergonomics, bringing a scientific approach to furniture design. A related influence was the 1973 research of psychophysicist Gunnar Johansson, which involved placing lights on key points of the human body to highlight movement.
With Milan design week kicking off next week, design editor Augusta Pownall picks the best shows to take in, from an installation built from bio-bricks to a multi-room exploration of neuroaesthetics from Google.
At Milan Design Week 2017, the Samsung Galaxy design philosophy of “no borders, no boundaries” was brought to fulfillment in an immersive interactive brand experience designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and Universal Everything.
E-paper technology is best known for its use in eReaders around the world. But a unique collaboration between artist Nik Hafermaas of Ueberall International and E Ink Corporation—makers of E Ink Prism™, the eco-friendly, high-fidelity alternative to LED that powers the Kindle reader—has resulted in the world’s largest three-dimensional application of e-paper technology.
Contro Spazio: Punti in Aria (Counter Space: Points in Air) was a site-specific installation displayed in the SG Gallery and on the streets of Venice from July 7 to July 27, 2015. The goal of the project was to use graphic design (specifically, the printed ephemera of tourism) to provoke visitors and residents of the city to consider the ways in which graphic design fashions an image of Venice.
When acclaimed restaurant designer Adam Tihany approached the artist to come up with an installation that would bring food and fashion together for display in the entrance of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile - a large restaurant design show held each spring in Milan - he knew he wanted to stray from his traditional static print work and bring his surreal visions to life. He worked closely with the designer to develop the large-panel video presentation. Five tandem projection screens ran along a 100-foot entranceway leading into the design expo.
