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

Maria The.

The Maria The. floorlamp is our latest design produced in collaboration with Dotzauer Decorative Lighting Vienna. The lamp is an homage to the classical baroque light known as the maria theresia chandelier. It has glas applications on the arms to amplify the light and hide the electrical cable which creates nice reflections. The Maria The. looks like it is made entirely of glass but it but actually has a steel frame. The bare frame is merely the vehicle on which the crystal drape and pendants are located to recreate the many diverse designs of chandeliers from the simplest to the most intricate. The glass curve is freestanding and comes in a variety of color combinations. Almost like a seahorse the Maria The. light swims around in the environment providing a wide array of light. Dotzauer will present the Maria The. floorlamp and a variety of brand new models from the Maria The. series designed CLAASSEN & PARTNER.

Come visit the Dotzauer space in the designhalle d, booth 0116. The opening hours are every day from 10.00-18.00 (except 18.03. only until 17.00).

Bulb Fiction

The light bulb has been taken for granted; now, in its final days, we appreciate it all the more. Bulb Fiction shows radical lamp design from the late 1960s to the early 1970s from the collections of Klaus Engelhorn and Michael Turkiewicz and sets them besides contemporary light sources. The show, curated by Michael Turkiewicz and Gabriele Ruff, focuses on the light bulb both in itself and as an incorporated and essential element using applied lighting technologies within a luminaire where the design far exceeds functionality. Combination light sources demonastrate the creeping transition from the incandescent light bulb to the energy-saving bulb.

Displayed are objects of various artists such as Michael Anastassiades, Claassen & Partner, Florence Doléac, Charlotte Dumoncel d’Argence, Joel Degermark, Lonneke Gordijn/Drift, Rody Graumans, Stuart Haygarth, Tomas Hoke, Chris Kabel, mischer’traxler, NEXT architects & Aura Luz Melis, Polka, PRINZGAU/podgorschek, Tejo Remy und Marcus Tremonto.
