  • In 1972 Volvo made this experimental safety car. So many firsts. That bumper has shock absorbers behind it. That’s a backup camera and there’s a dash-mounted CRT monitor inside the car with the video feed. There are airbags and oh so much more.

  • So we’ve been building one of these as a small prototype for a structure we’re working on. We’ll be selling this one as its surplus to requirments. What would you use it for?
.
Dm or email us if your interested in it.

  • Bonjour à tous 🦑 !

L'équipe de Surface travail sur de nouvelles mécaniques de jeu !

Nous vous proposerons prochainement de nouvelles sessions de playtest !

Vous n'aurez jamais imaginé les profondeurs abyssales de cette façon 🐡... #jeudesociete #prototype #gamedesign #boardgame

  • SOLARVILLE
SolarVille is a working prototype of a miniature neighbourhood completely powered by solar energy. Built to a 1:50 scale, some households generate their own renewable energy using solar panels, while others automatically purchase excess electricity directly from the producer using blockchain technology. –
Made with: @space10_journal, @sachsnottveit, Blockchain Labs for Open Collaboration (BLOC), WeMoveIdeas India, Blocktech, @temporalstudio

  • I’ve been quietly having some fun in the workshop over the last couple of weeks developing my tea strainer. 
One of the most enjoyable outcomes has been to see the pre-drilled holes in the blank transform in scale and shape. The closer the holes are to the centre and the deeper the pressing, the larger they are and the more distorted they became. 
This is something I would not have discovered if I had settled on drilling the strainer after pressing the form. This distortion also creates an interesting effect due to the ‘grainy’ composition of the brass as the metal around the holes display signs of stress, forming beautiful subtle organic patterns on the surface, but I feel the perforations have become too large.
After some thought I decided to make a new shallower pressing (luckily Philip Bedford had milled up plenty of spare blanks). Instantly I was pleased with the effect. As predicted the perforations were smaller, yet we still had the subtle increased graduation in their size from the outside to the centre. In truth I also preferred the smoother shallower form.
Over the past week I have been testing these initial pressings with some quality loose leaf tea. The first pressing worked very well and I was pleased to find the metal didn’t conduct the heat too quickly (this might change with silver), though it didn’t catch as many leaves as I would like. The second pressing caught more, but the water was not passing through as quickly as one had hoped and because of the shallow pressing it was close to escaping over the sides. So I made up further 3 test pieces with slightly larger size holes and deeper pressings... several cups of tea later and I can feel I’m getting close, but I am going to try another tactic first.

  • This is a  leather notebook cover and penholder, that has a magnetic closure and can hold either one notebook or loose paper with a ring mechanism. I sewed the second version of this just recently. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I always struggled to keep a pen  with my notebook and and I wanted something reusable on the one hand and long lasting on the other. I used the @sigel.work.inspired notebook Conceptum before, but it always hurt me to leave this beautiful hardcase behind, after finishing a  notebook. I loved the design! I started thinking about a leather solution in 2017 already and created a three fold notebook. Back then, I thought this was the best design ever, because I spent so long  designing it. After using it for one year, I found several problems. 
1.)When opened it was very wide which was unpractical on the go. 
2.) I realised that I barely used more than one notebook, which was only possible through the three fold design. 
3.)The closing mechanism annoyed me. 
What I loved about it, was it's longevity and it's modularity, meaning the possibility to carry either loose paper or a notebook. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
I learned that testing and iterating over designs and products is absolutely key when solving problems. Maybe I will improve upon the second version too, but as for know, this handmade notebook cover is my daily driver and I love it. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
