Industrial Facility's Sam Hecht on Designing for Mass Production, Rethinking Repair, and the Importance of an Orderly Workplace Posted by core jr | 15 Oct 2013 | Comments (0) Hecht in Industrial Facility's London office. Photo by Hello Design. SILK For the past couple of years we've been working on the Kent Dementia Friendly Communities project. Covering the whole of Kent the project has inspired local community projects and dementia action alliances to form. The past few months we've been hard at work creating a website that captures all the activity that has happened under the Kent Dementia Friendly Communities project. The website quietly went live a few weeks ago and we wanted to share it on here: The site is not finished, in the future we hope it will be updated by the local alliances and project teams to continue to share the work they are doing, inspiring other communities along the way. We're still editing and adding to the site so if anyone has any comments please do get in touch.

Studio Visit: The Principals What does a studio—one that turns out a broad range of projects that require attention to the most finite details as well as broad strokes and big picture ideas—need? Balance. And after what The Principals founders Drew Seskunas, Charles Constantine and Christopher Williams describe as a somewhat shaky start, they were able to ground their young studio. Formed just two years ago, the first step was putting their "designer egos" aside and pooling their talents into space-transforming installations for PS1, Model Citizens gallery and Bonnaroo, as well as products like the Bronze Bones dominoes—which later became Bare Bones, a set created in collaboration with fashion designer Billy Reid. The group's eclectic backgrounds contribute to their varied style. Seskunas (who grew up with Constantine in Baltimore, and was later his classmate at Pratt) hopped around Europe after getting his Masters in architecture.

Us Now Us Now is a documentary film project "about the power of mass collaboration, the government and the Internet"[1] The New York Times describes it as a film which "paints a future in which every citizen is connected to the state as easily as to Facebook, choosing policies, questioning politicians, collaborating with neighbours."[2] The documentary weaves together the perceptions of leading thinkers on the power of the web, with the overriding suggestion that people gain a sense of satisfaction from active participation rather than symbolic representation in decision-making processes.[3] (Rebecca Frankel, editor of Channel 4's FourDocs) Synopsis[edit]

Snarkitecture En Noir FW14 New York NY 2014 In an ongoing collaboration with the fashion label En Noir, Snarkitecture created the scenic design and experience for their Fall/Winter 2014 runway show at the Park Avenue Armory in New York. Referencing En Noir's concept of "tunnel vision", guests entered the space through a 100' long tunnel. Beginning as a narrow passageway, the cragged enclosure transitions into a cavernous opening along its length, ultimately leading into the 40,000 SF volume of the Armory. The environment is made single piece of black knitted mesh fabric suspended from above, its undulating form recalling the excavation of a tunnel. A raised runway with tiered seating on either side cuts through the center of the space, leading to a large, spotlit curtain.

news « thinkpublic Looking for thinkpublic? We’re taking a pause, as our founding director Deborah is going on maternity leave from September 2012. We’ve learnt from many of our projects with new mums and children’s services, that starting a family can be like starting a business, extremely consuming in both time and energy. Snarkitecture Drift Design Miami/ Miami Beach FL 2012 An entrance pavilion for Design Miami/ 2012, Drift creates an unexpected moment within the context of the familiar white vinyl tent, reformulating the material to create a floating environment. Inflated tubes are bundled together to create a topographical landscape in suspension: an ascending mountain above and an excavated cavern below. These long cylinders are arranged vertically to infill the area of the entrance courtyard, and then lifted to create areas of circulation and rest for the visitors entering and exiting the structure. Filtered light passes between the tubes of the inverted landscape creating a space both interactive and contemplative. Apertures in the canopy above frame views of the Miami sky and allow natural light and fresh air into the interior.
