Water calligraphy device by Nicholas Hanna

Chinese men painting characters on the ground of parks with long brushes and water. Nicholas’ version is mounted on a flat-bead tricycle which is a ubiquitous form of transportation in Beijing.

The valves release droplets of water on the ground as the tricycle moves forward, thus forming Chinese characters that slowly pool together and eventually evaporate entirely.

Envolta by Júlia Esqué

Júlia Esqué is a young designer from Barcelona who has worked for the re-interpretation of the 1988 Delta Prize , the “Coqueta” Chair by Pete Sans. The main attractive feature of the chair is the use of a belt that supports the tension generated by the weight of the user and prevents the arch opening of the legs. Thus, Júlia’s work has been inspired by the belt. Most importantly, because this part is the meeting point between the chair and the new proposal. It is mandatory for the proper use of the object by conceptualising about the tension that occurs in the chair use. Therefore, the aim of Envolta (which in catalan means “to wrap”) is to create something that serves to transport these items linking the subject with a belt. Turning one extreme inside the belt buckle get tense and holding the object.

The diwire bender by Pensa

The DIWire Bender is a rapid prototype machine that bends metal wire to produce 2D or 3D shapes.Wire unwinds from a spool, passes through a series of wheels that straighten it, and then feeds through the bending head, which moves around in 3 dimensions to create the desired bends and curves. Vector files (e.g., Adobe Illustrator files), text files of commands (e.g., feed 50 mm, bend 90° to right…) provide DIWire’s instructions.It’s essentially a 3D printer that describes lines, instead of volumes, in space, and it could be used for anything from prototypes to customized products.

R2B2 a kitchen machine by Christoph Thetard

Kitchen machines with an alternative drive concept. R2B2 is the result of a project to reduce private electric waste production. There are three different kitchen appliances, which are powered by rotating a flywheel with muscular strength. Electricity is not necessary anymore.

A lot of other features are possible to power. All products and pieces are designed by including user studies under the topics long life, high functionality, easy cleaning, easy demounting and high quality look.
