For the exhibition – Interieur Kortrijk 2012, noumenon developed exploratory prototypes that can be used as a innovative design. These prototypes assume a preeminence in which smart materials exhibits an increasing stratification of functionality as an important component within a larger system of design. It is clear that shape shifting materials provide tools for new possibilities, and can encourage new ways of opportunities that can be embedded in the logic of production, transport and the life cycle of the product. The goal of these exploratory prototypes is to demonstrate how such concepts can be adapted to different uses and anticipate as an intermediary between design, fabrication and innovative markets
'It used to be that young people with humanitarian aspirations went into law or medical school or applied to Teach for America or the Peace Corps. But today, increasing numbers of the most innovative change makers have, like Mr. Murphy, Mr. Ricks and Ms. Shioiri-Clark, decided to try to design their way to a more beautiful, just world.
This new breed of public-interest designers proceeds from a belief that everybody deserves good design, whether in a prescription bottle label that people can more easily read and understand, a beautiful pocket park to help a city breathe or a less stressful intake experience at the emergency room. Dignity may be to the burgeoning field of public-interest design as justice is to the more established public-interest law'

'Utopia or Oblivion? Buckminster Fuller framed this question in his 1993 book of the same name, warning that mankind's prospects would go decisively one way, or the other. Twenty years on, it is clear that nobody could have answered his question with any certainty. This is because we are all entangled in it. Fortunately, most of us have heard of the butterfly effect, so we are slowly realising that each one of us has some responsibility for what happens. What does this mean for 'UCD' (User-Centered Design)?'
