Sschemata designed a long chair .This is a donative to celebrate completion of Centurial Memorial Building of Nippon Institute Of Technology. This chair is made of one seamless steel pipe which draw the section shape of chair. And a seamless steel pipe draw various ways to sit.
It could also be used as a bicycle rack.
Sound/Chair begins as a sound that is precisely crafted to form the shape of a chair when visualized as a 3-dimensional object using a volume, time, frequency plot. The prototype chair is an exact replica of the soundwave graph. The result is a product with dual existence as both a sound and a chair, and a new approach to designing products.

Aesthetically popularized by M.C. Escher, Escher himself would be feverishly sharpening his pencil if got a gander of this infinite loop forming table. Inspired by the “slow and perpetual flow of the Nile River,” the “Endless Nile” table by Karim Rashid, is a fluid form of DuPont Corian molded over a steel structure on a wooden base. As part of the newly formed Design Republic of Egypt brand, Mr. Rashid’s composition for Amr Helmy Designs hopes to showcase Egyptian’s take on international design trends around the globe.
The light in the chair is activated directly by the rocking of the chair as if it was full of light water. If you vary the movement you affect the light in the chair. The light will inspire the user to change or try to maintain a rocking pattern – in order to affect the direction, speed or intensity of light
Introducing ‘Reboot’, a POD house by Victor Vetterlein
Reboot is designed to be self-sufficient, wired, and fluid in form.
RPOD050108_Self-Sufficient | Reboot is self-sufficient and eco-friendly. The building is constructed with a space frame, and the outer skin increases structural strength through double curvature. The skin system consists of a vapor barrier, dense foam insulation, and metal sheathing where the exterior face is glazed in solar cell paint. The surface of the building serves as a solar energy collector. Supplemental electricity is provided by on-site wind turbines and energy is stored in batteries on Deck 1. Wind power is also used to pressurize a large canister to operate the hydraulic elevator and the water treatment system. The smooth outer skin of the building acts as a foil against adverse weather conditions, and the rooftop serves as a water collection surface where rainwater runs into a drain located above the resin laminated glass windows. The water is stored in holding tanks positioned below the Main Deck and managed by an in-house water treatment system on Deck 2. Natural ventilation is provided by operable vents located at the top and the bottom of the structure. Lastly, the building’s mechanical systems are stacked on two floors above the Ground level eliminating the need for massive ground penetrations and a large site footprint.
RPOD050108_Wired | Reboot is computer operated, fully automated, and wired to the max. The household living environment is managed by a direct digital control (DDC) system that oversees support networks such as lighting, heating, cooling, music, entertainment, and security. The user operates this system through voice activated sensors, remote controls, and touch pads. The DDC system is accessed and controlled any distance from the dwelling via a laptop computer or a cell phone. Skylight covers, fresh air vents, retractable media screens, and retractable partition walls are also operated by the DDC system. Doors throughout the building are pocket doors and operated with motion or voice sensors. A main computer room on Deck 1 directs the DDC system, and an on-site satellite dish connects the house with the outside world.
RPOD050108_Fluid Form| Reboot’s floor plan is void of hard edges and fluid in form. Upon entering the building at the Ground level, one sees an elliptical glass elevator shaft that refracts natural light from the skylight above. A white stairway with a glass handrail encircles the elevator, winds upwards through two support service decks, and arrives at the primary living area on the Main Deck. A hallway with walls covered in a white acoustical meshing leads to the Bridge with a panoramic exterior view as its terminus. The high gloss white floors and arched ceiling of the Bridge reflects light from the exterior scenery and amplifies the radiance of colors. Public functions are in the front of the building, moderately public functions in the middle and private activities in the rear where there are two sleeping cabins. A panelized floor and wall system allows for a changeable floor plan for future living adjustments.

New retractable skeg system included in the standard version improves tracking, a feature especially convenient for long distance paddling. If purchased additionally, the new optional outrigger system improves stability when in choppier waters and renders flipping practically impossible., Unparalleled material durability, weather ability and impact resistance are among the Molokini’s advantages. Impact resistancy tests have included intense crashing against rocky shorelines, 20 ft drops, hammer blows and an ejection from a vehicle at 70mph.
Tests performed on the island of Oahu, Hawaii, have proven that the visibility on a sunny day and during non-turbulent water conditions can yield views to depths of 75 ft plus for the exploration of new worlds waiting to be discovered.
Tests have included encounters with pods of dolphins, coral farms and nocturnal underwater sea life.
