I am treating this a a repository for thoughts and ideas. A sort of virtual sketchbook. It is full of just about anything, from that which inspires me to that which makes me laugh. Enjoy.
Heat Rescue Disaster Recovery is a set of emergency items, which can help to reduce the negative effects of refuge life. Made from an oil drum, it can simply be transformed into stove: to heat, to boil water and to cook (freeze-dried rice is included). The drums can be kept at municipal storage facilities, company offices and other such places. When a disaster happens, they can effectively be transported to the areas affected. The standardized drums are easy to carry, and can be transformed into wooden fuel cooking stoves without much effort. Once the need for them has passed, the pots can be reused in new drums.
Time Square is a wall light - timepiece, which consists of 12 cylindrical aluminum lighting components; 4 placed in the middle forming a cross, and 8 attached together with metal joints placed perimetrically forming a square frame, approximately 1,40m x 1,40m. LED lighting (12W) is integrated in each cylinder while a dimmer system ensures a wide brightness variation. The illuminated cylinders display “digitally” the 12 hours twice per day while the lower left horizontal cylinder displays the minutes; 12 circular LED spots light-up based upon a 5-minute frequency and fade-away progressively.
Time Square was presented during 100% Design London 2010 by Tenshi7, a newly founded company based in Athens, Greece, primarily developing its independent production line while undertaking furniture and lighting design missions for both private and public areas.
