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

The Great Viennese Cafe: A LABORATORY

Wed, 05.10.2011–Sun, 04.03.2012MAK DESIGN SPACE

What do we expect of coffeehouses of the future? Since March of this year, selected members of Vienna’s creative industries have studied these most essential cultural and social nodes of Vienna on the invitation of the MAK and departure, the City of Vienna’s agency for the creative industries. Directed by coffeehouse expert Gregor Eichinger and guided by raumlaborberlin, Antenna Design New York and Studio Andrea Branzi, Milan, new approaches were developed in the course of three design labs. A concomitant and constantly growing research exhibition by Julia Landsiedl, the 2011 MAK Designer in Residence, supplied valuable input (Phase I).

In Phase II, eight of the 21 conceptual ideas developed are tested in an experimental design—a coffeehouse in test operation in the MAK Columned Main Hall—till October 16th. By means of a Web application, you can access and comment on all the ideas here at the “museum lab” using the devices provided or your own smartphone*, and even compile your own selection of favorites. The visualized pool of ideas comes with an overview clustered by keywords such as “overall concepts”, “furniture” or “withdrawing” and “being seen”. Join in and share your opinion to become part of the experiment and the development process!

In addition, the exhibition at the MAK DESIGN SPACE shows the work done in the laboratory so far and evaluates the test operation of the Experimental Design and the eight prototypes. The mix of traditional and innovative elements, such as novel communication furniture and alternative education systems, demonstrates the broad range of the projects developed, which do not explicitly propose any radical rejection of typical Viennese coffeehouses. In all projects, the focus of exploration was the social and communicative potential of the spaces. The preliminary results are as diverse as the team members of this short-term, but close-knit research community.

With works by Patrycja Domanska, Ines Fritz, Mario Gamser, Felix Gieselmann, Lena Goldsteiner, Andrea Hoke, Eva Kees, KIM+HEEP, Tanja Lightfoot, Stefan Rozporka, taliaYsebastian, Magdalena Vogl et al.

MAK Columned Main Hall

In this Experimental Design, eight of the twenty-one conceptual ideas developed as part of The Great
Viennese Café: A Laboratory are tested in a temporary trial run. In addition, a Web application allows you to access and comment on all the projects while you are in the Experimental Design, using the devices you can get from the „lab assistants“ or your own smartphone (fluxguide); you can even compile your own selection of favorites.

The fluxguide allows you to explore the Experimental Design at your own pace and to actively contribute to its development. It provides you with explanations, images and interviews with the designers, as well as an opportunity to post feedback. Or you can just go to a coffeehouse-in the museum. Either way, you are part of the experiment!
