How To Design For Disabilities

How To Design For Disabilities | Design.Print.Make | Scoop.it
Today, it is estimated that nearly one in five Americans live with some form of disability. That's roughly 50 million people—a number that only continues to grow. Several architects, like Michael Graves (who was left paralyzed from the waist down after a virulent sinus infection), have lamented that the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 guidelines have not gone far enough to protect those with limitations. Monica Ponce de Leon, dean of the School of Architecture and Urban Planning at the University of Michigan, has advocated for "universal design" principles, demanding that everything—from products to the built environment— be usable to the greatest extent possible by everyone, regardless of their age, ability, or status in life. ...
Luis Pina Lopes's insight:

Very important and always forgoten discipline, design for disabilities.

Joris Laarman's Latest 'Anti-Gravity' 3D Printer Basically Conjures Metal Out of Thin Air

Joris Laarman's Latest 'Anti-Gravity' 3D Printer Basically Conjures Metal Out of Thin Air | Design.Print.Make | Scoop.it
About nine months ago, we got a first look at a freely articulating 3D printer, developed by Joris Laarman Lab in collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC). By extruding a special fast-curing resin with a multi-jointed robotic arm, MATAERIAL proposed a "radically new 3D printing method," suitable for "irregular or non-horizontal surfaces." Now, the Dutch designer has unveiled his latest breakthrough in liberating digital fabrication from a build platform: As its name suggests, MX3D-Metal can

2,5D printing - Materia | Design.Print.Make | Scoop.it
We’ve pretty much got used to 3D printing techniques, and 4D is just around the corner. Equally impressive, though often less obvious, is 2,5D printing. This technique, in which a thin layer of solidified ink is printed, allows for some texture to be printed onto a flat substrate. We’re taking a look at some of …

"This program is part of Prof. Paulo Blikstein’s FabLab@School project, which has been introducing digital fabrication labs and “maker” activities in schools since 2009. In this unique program, twelve local high school students spent four weeks in January on campus taking part in a variety of digital fabrication/maker workshops and projects including laser cutting, robotics, 3D printing, polymer casting, electronics, product design, and several topics in science and engineering. They will return for four more weeks in May and June to design, in small groups, products that solve real problems in their lives and communities."

7 Contemporary Trends Redefining Residential Architecture

7 Contemporary Trends Redefining Residential Architecture | Design.Print.Make | Scoop.it
According to the an article by the American Institute of Architects, the slowly recovering housing market has particularly benefitted families building new private homes. As the economy continues to bounce back, more families have accumulated the funding to focus again on the appearance of their abodes. And, with more houses being built across the world, architects have been busy finding new, creative, and sometimes peculiar ways to set their designs apart. Browsing through our database of new projects, we've noticed an array of distinct design elements that add a fresh touch to contemporary residences. From sculptural elements on exterior walls, to shading systems that mitigate lighting, these are the seven contemporary trends that are ...

Introducing: Elisa Strozyk

Introducing: Elisa Strozyk | Design.Print.Make | Scoop.it
Challenging common perception, Berlin-based Elisa Strozyk makes solid wood malleable. With carpets, blankets, cabinets, lamps and even upholstery, the young designer creates flexible geometric structures out of laser-cut veneers. Soon after graduating from Central Saint Martin’s Textile Futures programme, Strozyk won the 2010 German Federal Design Prize for Best Newcomer. In 2011, she received Salone del Mobile’s Satellite Award. After discovering her Ceramic Tables at last month’s imm Cologne, we recently spoke to Strozyk about three emblematic designs. 
What Inspired you to develop Wooden Textiles?
Elisa Strozyk: I wanted to explore new material while still applying textile techniques. I love the feel and smell of wood – it exudes warmth and grows old beautifully. Taking cues from the material itself, I experimented with turning this natural material into something new. Wooden Textiles combine hundreds of triangular tiles into geometric patterns – held together by cotton. 
Describe Miss Maple lamp. 
Like Wooden Textiles, I explored how familiar material can be used in unconventional ways. Wood is usually experienced as a plain surface but in this case, it’s broken down into a grid and easily formed into different shapes. A warm source of light by night, Miss Maple shows her true sculptural-nature by day. 
Accordion Cabinet has similar traits. Have you explored other applications?
Developed in collaboration with Sebastian Need, Accordion Cabinet is a tall shelf encapsulated by a flexible skin – folding like the musical instrument. I’ve use this new material – thin wooden structures – for furniture and lighting but also fashion. In the past few years, I’ve worked with fashion designers to produce unique garments and accessories. 
Experimenting with new materials and concepts, what is your ultimate goal?
My main objective is to show people how traditional techniques can be implemented in new ways. The world is increasingly immaterial; we live in a visual society with very little left to feel. Its important to create surfaces that stimulate the senses, invigorate tactility and enhance the emotional value of objects.

Favourite Quote ‘What we need to question is bricks, concrete, glass, our table manners, our utensils, our tools, the way we spend our time, our rhythms. To question that which seems to have ceased forever to astonish us.’ – George Perec, Species of Space
Best advice received Keep it simple!
Three things every designer needs Vision, a space and time to realize it.
