Sonic Wire Sculptor for Iphone

Posted in art, ideas, illustration, music by aldorf on April 15, 2010

Sonic Wire Sculptor is based on a musical instrument by Amit Pitaru which has been shown in museums and galleries world wide. A great effort has been placed in reworking the app to take advantage of the the iPhone’s unique audio and input capabilities.The Sonic Wire Sculptor turns your 3D drawing into sound. It introduces a simple yet deep connection between visual and audio composition.The app is easily graspable and intuitive, allowing someone with no musical or drawing background to lauch it and start exploring. At the same time SWS goes deep and encourages musicians and artists alike to explore new ideas in their craft.This iPhone version was led by Zach Gage with Amit’s support. Big props to Zach Lieberman and James Paterson for their seminal help.Sonic Wire Sculptor requires headphones, without them you may only hear limited audio, especially on the low (bass) tones.Sonic Wire Sculptor was reworked for the iPhone with ofxIphone and openframeworks open source libraries.

Chairless by Vitra

Posted in design, ideas by aldorf on April 15, 2010
Chairless is a seating device for the modern nomad. This sturdy strap of fabric allows its user to sit down in a relaxed manner – but with neither seat nor backrest. It is thus a solution par excellence for times when chairs are in short supply: lunch in the park, while waiting in a crowded airport, a picnic on the lawn, sitting down at a concert, reading on the beach and on countless other occasions. Chairless is so light and compact that you can carry it with you wherever you go.
Chairless relieves the spine and legs, so that hugging your knees or using a support is no longer necessary. Now your hands are free to operate your laptop or your iPod, for reading, eating etc.
Chairless is available in four versions.
