Open Hardware

Peter Kirn`s post on the OFFF digital design conference in Portugal made me realized that there should be a discussion on the resources and platforms behind the open source approach.

I think that the main issue of open source is sharing resources, providing the recipe doesn't make it collaborative.

It is only one aspect of the equation. I know it may sound obvious… Continue

Stem of Mashups

There is a new kind of relationship between creators and their audiences that challenge the way each part sees itself and what is expected from the other.

The design was not focused on a specific instrument but on a new system that enable the creation of "mass production" of unique one of a kind.

This challenge meant that every component (different function) should have similar visual aspects and similar attachment solution even though they are different in size, material, weight and… Continue

From The Begining

By the end of 2004, prior to my graduate year as an industrial design student at Bezalel (Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem), I began to have doubts on my future occupation.

The industrial world has been facing in the past years much justified criticism regarding its responsibility over pollution, labor rights and over production as a result of implementing out-sourced approaches.

As part of the competition, Companies and manufactures are focusing on their survival by enhancing… Continue
