A journey with our Pleasurable Troublemakers

On June, 17th 2014, Matthias and I had the chance to present our Pleasurable Troublemakers to Svenja Schulze, Minister for Innovation, Science and Research of the German Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia. Our presentation was part of a journalist journey that presented several projects that were realized in cooperation with the Wuppertal Institute for Climate, Environment and Energy and Prof. Dr. Christa Liedtke. Here are some impressions of our journey.

Transformational Objects at Habit Summit Europe

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

mcp_Studio_02

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.

Essen und Denken – Was ein Theater

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Das Semester startet mit einem gemeinsamen Essen, dem selbstgefangenen Braten oder einer wertschätzenden Lebensmittelpräsentation in der Küche. Im „Design-Theater“ überprüfen wir erste Konzeptansätze. Konzepte werden durchgespielt und die reale Interaktion zwischen Mensch, Objekt und Umfeld überprüft. Wir freuen uns auf den gestarteten Kurs „Essen und Denken“.
