NEW SPRING

COS x Studio Swine

Dir. Juriaan Booij

 

Celebrating Salone del Mobile 2017, COS has partnered with London-based design duo Studio Swine to create New Spring, an interactive installation and multi-sensory experience in Milan’s historic Cinema Arti.

Designed to use minimal resources, the installation presents ephemeral materials in a strange new context; delicate mist-filled ‘blossoms’ that disappear on contact with skin, but can be held by visitors wearing special gloves. Producing these blossoms is the installation’s bold centrepiece, a tree-like sculpture that references the ornate chandeliers of Milanese palazzos.

Director: Juriaan Booij from Ridley Scott Associates

Terraforming

Swarovski / Studio Swine

Dir. Juriaan Booij

 

Vimeo Staff Pick

Terraforming depicts a crystal planet that has been discovered in the galaxy. It follows a young cartographer's journey to the planet, where he engineers the environment to be habitable for humans using various tools of exploration. The Dune Clock tells the time with 3 million precision cut crystals; the minutes pass with falling crystals and the hour with the digital numbers. The Dune Table creates an array of miniature landscapes using sound frequencies ranging from 100Hz-10,000Hz demonstrating the planet's ever shifting surface.

The first ever object to be designed by man 1.7 million years ago was a flint hand axe. Flint has the same molecular structure as a crystal and they both consist of silica. The project juxtaposes the flint hand axe with the latest crystal technology; Xero chaton the world's smallest precision cut crystal measuring 0.6mm in diameter, smaller than a grain of sand.

Terraforming is a project commissioned for Designer of the Future 2015 by Swarovski at Design Miami/ Basel.

The Makers Of Things

Dir. Anne Hollowday

 

Who we are is intrinsically connected to what we do and the things we build. So what does a lifetime of making things look like?

The Makers of Things - a short film collection by Anne Hollowday - documents the work and workshops of the Society for Model and Experimental Engineers, a sprawling organisation with members all over the world. Their common tools and methods mask a huge array of interests and skills, from experimental tinkerers to woodworkers and librarians, all brought together under the roof of their South London headquarters.

See the remaining three films in the collection here:
