The Tape Installation by Croatian-Austrian design collective Numen/For Use spread over Europe in 2010 – from Zagreb to Vienna Design Week to Berlin’s Design May and Frankfurt’s Schirn Kunstalle. But the culmination of its growing tour was the Red Dot award in the category Event Design for the symposium Quer on Interactivity held in March at the old Vienna theatre Odeon.
Numen/ForUse has designed a new net for social connecting, and the interaction it offers keeps on being checked at the famous Belgium gallery Z33 in Hasselt that has ordered it. The NET project is an upgrade of the internationally successful Tape Installation.
How has one product designer managed to modernize the content of everday life in Britain for over 50 years? The outline of modern Britain took shape through the work of Kenneth Grange who has, among other things, designed the first Kenwood „Chef“ food mixer, the first parking meter in Britain, Parker pencils, Kodak cameras, irons for Morphy Richards, razors for Wilkinson Sword, washing machines for Bendix.
