DNA 2014

Auch dieses Jahr waren wir wieder beim DNA Kongress dabei. Das Neue Arbeiten DNA heißt so arbeiten, dass Unternehmenserfolg mit Freude verbunden wird. Leistungsorientierte Bezahlung, zeitadäquate Technologien, Unabhängigkeit von Ort und Zeit. Flexible, flache Strukturen. Vertrauen statt Kontrolle. Und ein Ambiente, das Produktivität und Kreativität fördert, offen und bereit für die neuen Generationen. DNA bietet die gleichzeitige Steigerung von Mitarbeiterzufriedenheit und Profitabilität.

Diesmal durften wir unseren Logo Entwurf nicht nur überall in der Location sehen, sondern auch auf dem Mini, welch ein Augenschmaus. wir haben auch ein anderes unseren incentives presentiert- dem Knatterboots Renntisch. Das Knatterboot verblüfft durch seinen einfachen Motor, der ohne Kolben, Ventil oder Rädchen auskommt. Vor dem 2.Weltkrieg waren die Boote, damals „Puff-Paff-Boot“ genannt, ein sehr beliebtes Spielzeug. Ein Knatterboot ist ein Metallboot mit einem Wasserimpulsantrieb, als Energiequelle dient lediglich eine Kerze. Die Boote bewegen sich für ihre Größe schnell und lautstark mit einem knatternden Geräusch fort. Wir haben für die Kongressbesucher zum entspannen-connecten einen Tisch entworfen wo jeweils 4 Leute gegen einander antreten konnten und sich austauschen, spass haben und gewinnen.


We also took the time at Schmiede to focus on working on an idea we das for quite a while- to create a 3-d printer using an eco friendly, biodegradable material. We believe Schmied was the perfect place to experiment with salt, which there was alot of which you can see in our previous post. We developed different mixtures, testing which paste works the best for our needs, and developed the the Mendel Max Printer further to fullfill our needs. We where really happy to actually managing and printing small objects with our salt paste in the end. Thanx to Schmiede and the great people whirling around here and there we did not give up!


We finally made it to Schmiede this year, we have been keeping an eye on the Schmiede project since the very first year, but time never allowed for us to be part of it, this year we made it ; ) Schmiede is a cooperative prototyping environment, focused on the arts, hacking and entrepreneurship. Schmiede is a place where our ideas come to play, it was founded by Rüdiger Wassibauer and his brother Philip. We met for 10 days… in order to get inspired, network, create, present, collaborate and exchange. HEre are some impressions we gathered during those days

From the 2nd of June until the 5th of June you can purchase our collection of Shadow Tattoos for a disocunt price with Fab. Here is some information about the project. Inspired by our experiments with light, we decided to design a range of Shadow Tattoos looking at the form developed by casting a shadow of a range of iconic chairs. The reason why we wanted to emphasize the shadow cast of these chairs is because shadows have a very important role in defining three-dimensional forms and their perception. The shadow cast from the chairs silhouette make them appropriate for becoming an eye-catching tattoo!  Here the Barcelona Chair, over there the Panton Chair-you can now at least get the shadow of your favorite classic chair to full-fill your iconic chair collection. The Shadow Tattoos cost a fraction of the price of the real chair and are made in Germany and made of Vinyl that can easily be removed again. There are 15 different chairs available in 6 different colors, each wall tattoo matches the dimension of the original chair.




A new start-up with a fresh idea is online- a website featuring a nice collection of products made in Austria. Amonst the selection you can also find our antler candles called Les Bois Allumes in the WOHNEN section. Have a look at this beautiful video showing the spirit of the 2 founders Zissa Grabner and Alexandra von Quadt, here is the link and another one  the website
