Experience Design at ‘Diseinu Berrikuntza Zentrua (DBZ)’


Bye-bye Spain. It was a nice short journey and an interesting lecture at Diseinu Berrikuntza Zentrua in Arrasate-Mondragón. After a lot of Tortilla de Patata, some glasses of cider and an extensive trip to the countryside of the Basque country we had to say good bye to Aiur, his family and the students. Looking forward to meet you soon again.1396254073400

Transformational Objects at Habit Summit Europe

 Bildschirmfoto 2014-03-12 um 10.01.56
We all know people, who seem to have all the “good” habits: Taking the bike instead of the car or showering only briefly and only cool. Wouldn’t it be nice to adopt at least some of  those for the sake of our own health and the environment? This is easier said than done. “How can we build and adopt good habits, which support achieving our self-set goals?”  One potential answer is: “Through transformational objects”. Objects, which materialize good habits, but with a little twist. Meet Matthias in Amsterdam on the Habit Summit Europe to learn more.

maneCANpiss | by Daniel Töös


Healthy and blooming plants are beautiful to look at. However, in order to keep these living friends alive, it is necessary to take care of them. Although it is said that talking to them is beneficial, watering the plants from time to time should be a good starting point.

The watering can maneCANpiss is about watering plants frequently. Like any other watering can, maneCANpiss is filled with water from the top and watering the flowers is done by a nozzle-spout. However, if maneCANpiss is filled with water, it starts to continuously lower its nozzle-spout until the water spills – at worst on important things lying at the window sill. The longer you forget to water your flowers, the more water will spill. However, to avoid spilling water you can do two things. The former is to lift up the nozzle-spout – safe with the knowledge that you cheated yourself – the latter is to water your flowers.
