How we might use future tech to care for loved ones.
Last January I tried VR glasses for the first time. I was at the Singapore Science Museum attending a temporary exhibit. The exhibit was VR. There were three chairs and no queues so I gave it a go. It was a rollercoaster ride. I was seated in a rollercoaster car and could see in any direction I turned my head; sky, land below and the rails tracks ahead and behind. I was real and very fun. I do not like to ride rollercoasters but I walked away thinking it was great technology. Then I forgot about it.
When was the last time you walked down the street and passed a dog owner walking a four legged version of themselves? We see this all the time. Its fascinating how we choose our own traits in our pets. Your kitchen design should be the same. It should reflection how you cook and what is most important to you when cooking, preparing and storing food. Current trends on the market are about surface finishes and overall "looks", not about the efficiency of a kitchen.
Office design is a design art form in itself or better said, a specialization within interior design. A comprehensive understanding of human psychology is paramount as well as the varying needs of every profession, sound issues, storage and flow. At home we think we can take the easy route, "I only need a desk and chair" you're saying to yourself, but really we all need the same things regardless of where the "office" is: a quiet well designed space where we can focus on the matter at hand rather than trying to find important documents which were poorly filed or not filed at all, good light, natural light access, a supportive chair and a desk which is ample size to meet our needs and storage, storage and more storage.
What makes a good bar? The mixture of details to make people want to visit and return again and again?
Colour, its a broad topic and one I like to put front and centre. White is a default and security blanket to many. Its also very popular on social media sites like instagram where people connect better with white interiors. While white is lovely and it has its place, colour adds so much personality its worth trying it out. Life has more taste when you add colour.
Lighting. I'm very passionate about it. Apart from needing to see properly it radically improves any space. Last week I focused on lighting on Instagram, mostly looking at designers based in the U.S. After a visit to Denfair on Friday I was reminded how much amazing talent there is in Melbourne and Australia. I generally breeze through a furniture trade fair in Melbourne in roughly an hour. I arrived at 10:30 am and did not leave until well after 5 pm. It was a fantastic day filled with lovely people and reminded me of what it was living in New York when I was more in touch with creatives; people passionate about what they make and design.
Where to start or how to improve. Washrooms have so much potential that usually is left untapped.
