these guys are fast: a booth at the current shanghai furniture fair 2010. besides the common copies of the classic chairs, this booth also had some ‘reinterpretations’ of newer designs like konstantin grcic’s chair one for magis, or the bouroullec’s vegetal chair for vitra.

opening on friday july 9th at the yerba buena center for the arts in san francisco, TechnoCRAFT explores the changing boundaries between designer and consumer. curated by yves behar, it investigates the current trend of open design around the six subthemes of crowdsourcing, platforms, blueprints, hacks, incompletes, and modules.

included in the show is my shaded lamp, part of the un-readymades series, my own exploration in the area of design democracy and personalization in 2007.

some additional info can be found at dexigner.

another take on crowd-sourcing by a new company called stylefactory. focusing on modern furniture and accessories, it uses community feedback to narrow down a pre-selection of designs to then source them from high quality manufacturers.

full disclosure: one of my own designs is currently included in their pre-selection. anybody care to vote for it? ;-)
