Designed Humanitarian

Problem solving is at the core of design thinking. You take a complex problem and develop a solution that balances the needs of everyone involved.

Heavy rains in the monsoon season combined with global warming, is causing extreme flooding.

Beautiful Billboard

Blurring the worlds of art & architecture this bee like swarm of metal rods frames a billboard that is nothing but a clear view across the Washington/ British Columbia Peace Arch Boarder crossing. This intriguing and delicate looking structure is the brain child of Lead Pencil Studio titled ‘Non Sign II’. Made from thousands of varying length stainless rods that are painstakingly welded and twisted together, Non Sign II makes us blatantly aware of how billboards and signs have become synonymous in our ever day landscape.

Liquid Art

Italian artist Alberto Seveso has created a stunning series of liquid art using coloured varnish in a fishbowl. The varnish swells in the fishbowl, stretches and then folds on top of itself. The effect is an incredible rich display of form and colour.

Giant Jelly Bean

With a stunning seamless form and mirror like finish, this giant jelly bean is one of the most impressive and interactive public sculptures of recent times. Located in Chicago’s Millennium Park it’s made of 168 highly polished stainless steel plates, and stands at 33 feet high, 66 feet long, 42 feet wide and weighs 110 tons. In the center is a 9ft high tunnel, allowing you to be surrounded by the mirrored form and experience being reflected/morphed like never before. The success of Anish Kapoor’s sculpture has to be that all walks of life can enjoy and interact with this truly brilliant piece of art.

Inflatable Metal

At first glance you might think these are your typical inflatable beach like toys, a whimsical idea that isn’t functionally feasible.
Well think again, using a similar process but swapping materials Architects Oscar Zieta and materials scientist Philipp Dohmen have developed a process that takes two thin sheets of metal and welds them together along their seams, and then inflates them through a hole with high pressure using water or air.
With this technique, the metal finds its optimum shape and therefore becomes incredibly strong. When put to the test, their ‘Plopp’ stool was able to hold 2.5 tons!
