This wireless headset was inspired by killer whales.
Winner at Nokia’s international Music Almighty Design Competition. A fully functional prototype was built by Atom (UK) and exhibited at Nokia’s flagship store in London.
Designed in 2008.
A comfortable and firm cardboard seat for indoors. By taking advantage of the material’s physical properties and simple assemblies, 100% Cartón is an aesthetic, low-cost and ecological piece of furniture.
It can be transported as a flat pack and comfortably assembled by the user. As it does not require adhesives or mechanical fasteners, it can easily be disassembled for storage, transport or material reuse. Its low cost makes it affordable to students and lower income households.
Featured in FRAME magazine. Designed in collaboration with Gustavo Rodríguez, 2004.
Specifically focusing on Scandinavian culture, the Open Kitchen is a cooking service system where people can go to cook and have dinner with other people. It is an easy alternative to ready-made dishes or takeaways offering variation and social interaction. The users are provided with the raw material, cooking assistance and cooking equipment. This way the users become prosumers instead of consumers.
The Open Kitchen was designed to be placed within the facilities of NOVI Science and Business Park in Aalborg, Denmark. The facilites are used during the daytime by the NOVI canteen, with which the Open Kitchen service was integrated to make efficient use of the staff, installations and food supplies.
Product service system designed in collaboration with Hanne Sørensen, Morten Trolle and Ingolfur Hermannsson, 2006.
This surgical table was designed for Epixa and is based in functional and ergonomic requirements for both surgeons and patients. It can assume an array of surgery positions and has bi-axial movements, with three programmable positions. Cushions can be placed for each of the table’s modules.
The table’s movements are produced by pneumatic pistons and their precision by movement and rotation magnetic sensors. The nylamide surface renders as radio-transparent to allow fluoroscopic procedures during surgery. Underneath the table, hidden lateral rails permit 14-17 inch x-ray chassis to be placed under the patient.
Common upper lateral rails are eliminated and instead, lateral canals allow to fix the table accessories with the new thongs without having to slide them along the table. There are two user interfaces, a remote control and a control at the base of the table. A weight sensor was also integrated in the design as input on the patient’s condition (i.e. rapid loss of liquids or tissue) and displays information at the table’s base. Placed also at the base, are a mechanical break and electrical plugs for other equipment that may be required during surgery. This minimizes the amount of cables going from walls to the table and therefore, risks.
Designed in collaboration with Francisco Villa, Dania Baledón and Gustavo Rodríguez, 2006.
Presented to Volvo as a compact car for two that integrates design and technology, becoming a mobile shelter for cities.
Chill Out combines technology and design. Liquid crystal technology makes it possible to partially or completely darken the panoramic sunroof. Combining new perspective GPS navigation and electric paper technology, Chill Out’s GPS perspective maps are projected directly in the lower part of the windshield, remaining transparent when turned off.
University project designed in collaboration with Ma. Fernanda de Alva, Maru Lizárraga, Francisco Villa, José Long and Carlos Espinosa, 2007.
Playful storage modules that result from the unusual combination of electronic appliances’ aesthetics and Meccano assemblies. Colour contrast highlights its shapes, and the assemblies its simplicity.
The three modules can be arranged to crate new interesting storage spaces. Aluminum bolts easily lock the inner modules into position, which provide further versatility and user adaptation. Built in lacquered MDF with polyester finish and aluminum bolts.
Designed in 2005.
Aeris is the redesign of Martin Pro’s moving head, the MAC2000.
It implements digital technology in order to project video and endless ‘gobo’ animations on stage. Using a DLP projection chip and a different lens system, numerous mechanical components where eliminated, such as the shutter, gobos and effects modules, and 13 step motors, thus significantly reducing its weight and improving product reliability.
Mechanical locking systems were redesigned with easy access and visibility as priorities, to improve its set up time and handling on stage.
Designed in collaboration with Olivier Houdart, Morten Trolle, Dorte Hyldgaard and Morten Nedergaard at AAU, 2007.
Bar area and entertainment center with storage and display elements, using solid wood, lacquered MDF and onyx. This multifunctional area deals with technical limitations and the client’s particular needs.
Visual details follow functional needs, such as the carved handles in the glass area. The bar shelves and the onyx surface can be back lit for an ambient lighting. And it includes a handy stool hidden as a drawer.
Designed for a private client in Mexico City, 2008.
