Despoke interview: My3 favourite design objects
Despoke, an UK design blog approached me for an interview as well as sharing my 3 favorite designs, so here it goes:
No. 1 Freedom Of Creation’s Electric Tigerland Shoe campaign for Onitsuka Tiger, a marvelous application of Rapid Manufacturing for the advertising industry. This shoe was 3D Printed and customized to fit each of the Onitsuka Tiger retail locations.
No. 2 Troika Cloud @ Heathrow Airport, a five meter long digital sculpture whose surface is covered with 4638 flip-dots that can be individually addressed by a computer to animate the entire skin of the sculpture, simply amazing.
No. 3 Bug Labs, envisions a future where CE stands for Community Electronics, the term “mashups” applies equally to hardware as it does to Web services, and entrepreneurs can appeal to numerous markets by inventing “The Long Tail” of devices. In short, the future of electronics.
