SMART.MAP

BY MICHELA DELBOSCO
@ VOL 8 ON MAY 08, 2014

Smart.Map has been developed on behalf of Expo 2015 S.p.A. and in collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Milan, within the two-year project Alta Scuola Politecnica. It is based on using technology as a proactive system to implement the meaning of a territory and to build and strengthen connections among local actors, physical places,

citizens and tourists. The objective is the enhancement of the main characters of a specific city and its metropolitan area, through thematic itineraries and the creation of a network of local businesses under a common brand. This provides an immersive, customized, interactive and social experience of the urban environment, as well as a usercontext direct interaction. Smart.Map has an inclusive approach towards all the major actors of the considered territory (PA, possibily existing agricultural districts, the major producers of agro-food products, local associations, tourists and citizens), towards whom it interacts through a smartphone app and a web platform providing dynamic customized itineraries with gps navigation, e-commerce services and real-time data management.

Vuoto a (p)rendere

BY NEOSTUDIO | ELEONORA BURLANDO, RICCARDO MISELLI
@ VOL 8 ON MAY 08, 2014

The void is Smart! beacause it is unitary, secret, but also diversified, open, collective. The void is a primary resource for humans, starting with the fact that it is above all place within which it is possible to establish relationship between subjects, objects and places.
Vuoto a (p)rendere is a research axis of Neostudio oriented to the enhancement of the space starting from two main aspects: on the hand the identification and amplification of the specific qualities - both evident that latent - of the context, on the other hand the extension of the potential of fruition places through the establishment of a new balance between public and private domain, between inside and outside, between permanent and temporary.

Dynamicube floor & table lamp

BY GIORGIO TRAVERSO
@ VOL 8 ON MAY 08, 2014

DYNAMICUBE (floor lamp)

Dynamicube floor lamp is a simple cube made of eight enlightening smaller cubes. Three simple hinged movements invert the lamp: its outer surfaces all become inner surfaces and vice versa.

Dynamicube may easily be produced in series, given that its main structure is composed by the assembly of interlocking pieces having the same shape.
The framework is made of aluminum (a plate of a few millimeters shaped with the thick laser cut technique) and is covered with special polycarbonate films.
A sorter box is used for the exterior, which is assembled without the use of any screws or bolts.
The project takes inspiration from the patent of Peter-Michael Pfeiffer in 1964 and following evolution made by Naoki Yoshimoto in 1971.

DYNAMICUBE II (table lamp)
Dynamicube II is an enlightened cube (15x15 cm) which may be decomposed and shaped in many positions.
The project takes inspiration from the geometry of the cube and its simple decomposition.
A complete revolution of its shape may be done with a few easy movements: the outer surfaces of the cube all become inner surfaces and vice versa.
The lamp creates a paradox: when the bright faces are turned towards the interior it creates a lantern effect that does not really exist. As a matter of fact there is no light bulb or light source at the center of
the object: it's the structure itself of the cube that creates the light seen from outside.
Dynamicube II is made of four square surfaces and four triangular ones. Four square faces of the cube are OLED panels (also an option is to add four further OLED triangular panels): the OLED are both on
the external and internal faces of the cube.
The structure is made with the technology of Wood-Skin®
