Fuorisalone 2016-Technology-Driven Innovation and Design

2016, April 13. The Tortona District Is Home to The Exhibition of Some Solutions That Will Influence The Habits of Our Future. The Technology Will Offer Us a New Way to Draw, Drive and Even Perceive Reality With The Sense of Sight

Via Tortona it is one of the centers of Milan Fuorisalone 2016, with the annual appointment with the design of each area and country. My intention is to just get to understand how the will anticipate the future technology and innovation, not according to the engineering opinions but with the propensity to problem solving designers.I then had the chance to try one of the technologies that absolutely fascinate me the most: the virtual reality vision. Ecwall, a company that deals with partitions for architecture, offers a virtual tour inside of a building constructed in CGI. My interest, however, is directed almost exclusively to the Oculus Rift viewer provided at the entrance. Full of expectations, I have to admit I was a little disappointed since I have not found so immersive experience. My opinion is that the cameras in a digital environment, have a focal vision so long as to diminish objects too. Moreover, the thing that absolutely does not allow to confuse what is virtual and what is real is the fact that he could not see his own body or hands. Despite what I'm sure this will be fixed with the next release of the product. Another technological tool that I was curious to try even before the show was the new moleskine notebook model. This year, in fact, have proposed a very innovative project, which thanks to a special pen and your PC, makes our agenda a real tablet, capable of exporting our notes and drawings in a digital format. Unfortunately, the pen is unable to process the sudden pressure in a very precise, but I think it's a software problem, which uses a vector format. For the rest I found the new agenda a worthy substitute of the tablet since it gives the perception of the position of the drawing on the paper, which lacks any tablet. Unfortunately the price is still far down, but I'm sure the innovative drive of this product is so strong that soon we will see cheaper pens and could buy the sheets compatible with the technology even stationery.We look at the Lexus stand. This year, the technology that is proposed is that of the combustion of the hydrogen cell, which produces only water as the slag from the chemical reaction. To present this new technology, the large stand welcomes a dedicated water-sensory journey, where reign smells and flavors of dishes based on liquid consistency. In addition, to demonstrate the power of the fuel despite the low environmental impact, there is shown the generator that powers all the outfitting, which reservoir is able to illuminate the stand for three days with one liter of hydrogen.This is one of many of the stand decorative lamps, in the shape of river bulrush and with such a fine structure that the lamp oscillates continuously.Always in via Tortona, Takara Belmont exposes its internal and barber equipment in full bourgeois style of the roaring twenties.E15 produces solid wood interiors. The Backenzahn stool is made from the exact center of the trunk, keeping the recognizable radial grain of the wood and leaving cracks and imperfections on the surface, all in keeping with the philosophy of the Japanese wabi-sabi and respect for the dignity of the material."China DOC" is an exhibition dedicated to the Chinese luxury design, in particular was staged by the "Red Star Macallin", leader of the rising sun in terms of modern furnishings. This outdoor seat was carved from a single piece of wood, and in its wake was Pusto a fish pond. Unfortunately I can not help but wonder how anyone can change the water of goldfish.We move finally into the giant hall of more superstudio. The Kef company created a setting for their luxury amplifiers. Colorful and avant-garde forms strongly reminiscent of pop art, making all stand a scene worthy of the movie "Clockwork Orange."SOUND is a wall-mounted amplifier shaped like the sun that rises, decorated with colored cloth. OSOUND can play music wirelessly from any Bluetooth connected device has very innovative gestural interface. In fact there are no keys, but a photocell receiving the commands given by hand gestures.via tortona longer hosts the workshop 14, a meeting place for young startupper. The overdrive project brings together artists and writers to create skateboard art, unique and personalized. This formula is the same as William Morris, that the 800 met the Pre-Raphaelites painters to create a wallpaper product.a little farther on, service laser exhibits his installations in inlaid wood products through CNC laser cutting. The accuracy of this technique allows you to create complex shapes or mixed, matching marble, mother of pearl or concrete; however, creating a luxury product.On the fifth floor of Via Tortona 9, in the showroom of Daniela Dallavalle, we observe these tables in glass and wrought iron. A mixture of ancient techniques, industrial materials and baroque luxury.An item I found was a lot of fun this BBQ ready made product by Japanese designers. The materials are very poor, even the wheels have been converted from a stroller, but the hob and raku ceramics, therefore very valuable.In the same hall I could see these works of cutlery. The designs of the blades have been produced with the same technique of Japanese katane, ie is applied a layer of clay on the blade at the time of tempering; the way are the incisions made on the hot mud create unique images.Exerpt:Via Tortona it is one of the centers of Milan Fuorisalone 2016, with the annual appointment with the design of each area and country.
