Further play comes in the form of discovery, lifting your page to the light reveals hidden messages. Or treating the book as a flip book and flicking through the pages from back to front displays an animated quote "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts".
iPads are rad for taking notes but they don't fold as well as paper does. There's something about a tangible product that allows one to slowly drift into another place while the pen stroke turns from a letter into a doodle, and then the next big idea.
A place for making notes is essential to any conference, and vital to the Innovation Summit. By using a slightly off kilter notes section we encourage creativity, originality and that out of the box thinking.
We do things a little differently at K&i and yes it takes a little longer but what you end up with is a stronger finished product. Instead of creating a single speaker template and rolling it out, we opted for 4 and still managed to create room for movement beyond these templates.
So, your parents are coming for Christmas and you don't have a guest bed...and you also don't want one as it takes up too much space. What do you do? Well, first thought might be that they can sleep on the couch? (ooh that's a bit harsh!) And it might not be such a fair deal if you have a DIY pallet couch for them to rest their weary bones on...
So we thought why not make a fold out sofa bed?! We bought some foam, stitched some fabric together, eventually managed to get the foam inside the fabric (not as easy as it might sound, so don't give up!), made some cushions and there you are, our very own super simple DIY fold out sofa bed! (as so kindly modeled by Guinness below)
This is what we used:
Foam size: 137 x 15cm (x 3 pieces)
Fabric pieces: 160 x 138,5cm (x 3 pieces) and 66,5 x 16,5cm (x 6 pieces for the side walls)
Here's how we did it:
You won't find this typeface on any font site, as we proudly handmade this little treat ourselves. To create it we used the sentence "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" as it contains all the letters in the alphabet.
"This way up is brought to you by photographer Henry Thomas in collaboration with K&i Design Studio.
The concept of the installation is based on contradictions and juxtapositions. Taking the location of the space into consideration, This way up enables you to descend into a world above.
The style of photography, graphic elements, merged images and contrasting expressions work together to create a different view of our environment.
A place where opposites meet... where city meets country, where images meet words.
A new space, where up is down and down is up."
This way up will be showcased at the Megaro bar in London until March 2014. All artworks are available for sale.
