-We juried the competition together with Adam Kumpf and Tad Toulis and the core 77 crew.The winners are online , Go check them out.

-The latest 1 Hour Design Challenge from Core 77: Gestural Interfaces was produced in partnership with Teague(where i work ) ." The contest challenged designers to think off the screen and make interfaces that live in the the objects and geometry of the world around us. In developing meaningful counterpoints to the flatness of all-in-one interfaces, we hoped you would integrate the richness of the physical world with the endless possibilities of digital information, tying together interface, ritual and context."

Hanging lamp Odaiba oby Modoloco for Danese

-Pretty simple idea, awesome construction and eye catching at the end, i say .. i like the Hanging lamp
Bicolor methacrylate: black + white, red+ white, white and dark brown
Odaiba is a hanging lamp that is in perfect line with Danese’s first traditional luminaries designed by Munari. The
manufacturing process is simple. Its disassembly features make transport and stocking easy. It is intuitive to assemble
when it comes to making the modules fit one into the other; its weight and geometrical shape help on the basis of
gravity force principles.
Two identical but specular modules surround the electrical cables and they self-sustain by locking one into the other.
The choice of bicolor methacrylate is induced by manufacturing, optical and also aesthetic reasons.
The manufacturing steps are optimized. In fact, the only necessary procedures are the cut of the profiles and their
folding. Shapes and dimensions are taken into account in order to reduce waste.
The glossy white interior ensures an optimum reflection of the light and therefore a correct modulation of the luminous
flux that doesn’t go wasted.
Odaiba is 100% eco-sustainable and not only in terms of manufacturing and transport. In fact, energy saving
florescent bulbs are used. The intrinsic properties of the only material used make of it a long lasting product whose
disposal is convenient.
