Many of the world changing companies started out in garages, and today the world’s most innovative companies are bringing that garage spirit in-house.
Today’s corporate garages are highly flexible, customizable environments where thinkers, makers and developers of all stripes can thrive.
Did you miss The Revolving Room during Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013, then this is your opportunity to get a glimpse of it.
The Revolving Room was a special installation by acclaimed designer Patricia Urquiola to celebrate her first textile collection for Kvadrat on her new and existing products for Moroso.
‘The Revolving Room is based around constant cycles. Hypnotically circular and repetitious rhythm is emphasised by the oversized embroidered fabrics’, Patricia Urquiola states. The entrance of the installation was illuminated with Philips luminous textiles on Kvadrat Soft Cells, and inside the space a series of three-sided fabric panels slowly revolve creating a dynamic, abstract and vibrant environment that constantly change as the panels rotate.
The Revolving Room was awarded with the Milano Design Award for the best installation shown by international design brands during Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2013.
Off-grid communities such as those in sub-Saharan Africa can pay thousands of times as much as the rest of us for their energy. Designer Jim Reeves has developed a simple, low-cost gear-train and generator that uses a descending weight to power a perpetual light source. Children can do their homework and study, families and friends can eat together and interact after dark adding new dimensions and possibilities to their lives.
