BECAUSE - High efficiency and responsibility - Orderliness of the internal structure of the human body

WAIT... WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE TIDY ENVIRONMENT?

- Chaos can lead to physical and mental anxiety and fatigue - Strong sense of space reality - Human fear of disease and bacteria

BUT Studies have shown that people are more creative in a chaotic environment. A chaotic environment can break the habit of thinking patterns and make the brain more active.

Design Reflection A clean environment can make people feel calm and happy, and a chaotic environment can stimulate people's creativity. Two different environments have a great impact on people's psychology and behavior. So can we change the way people think by creating a chaotic environment? How will the way and frequency of changing the environment affect people's psychology and behavior?

Project 2

FOR-FREEDOM Help people who 'fear of missing out' to realize freedom and no longer be bound by mobile phones. 10 weeks 2019.04


FEAR OF MISSING OUT

FOMO'S PECULIARITY

USER RESEARCH

Performance of FOMO crowd

From comments and interviews

Nowadays, we keep staring at the screen and constantly injecting various information into the brain. Many people suffer from FOMO. This social anxiety is characterized by 'a desire to stay continually connected with what others are doing'.

I'm crying because this is about me.

I always have felt like I am missing out. I deleted all my social media apps from my phone, even if it hadn't trigger the attack.

People with loss phobia always feels that other people have experienced something very meaningful in their absence.

It may lead to constantly checking of emails and social media updates, making people unable to participate fully in real life.

I have spent my whole life dealing with this. I learned to focus on my own thinking and feelings. This allows me to move forward with my life in a more purposeful way.

You miss out life when you coonect to social media.

INVESTIGATION & ANALYSIS From a survey on FOMO

56% 56% are afraid of missing something if they don’t keep an eye on their social networks.

52% 52% have considered taking a “vacation” from one or more sicial networks in the past year.

24% 24% plan to stop or take a “vacation” from using at least one of their social networks.

32% 31% for those 18-34 years old.

SUMMARY By chatting with the FOMO people and analyzing their comments, I found that they always pay too much attention to others and

ignore themselves.They also feel very sad and regret afterwards.


CAUSES

Deep analysis of FOMO Population

But most people can't put down their phones right away.Transfer their attention and let them travel immediately. No product can help them control themselves.

Long-term or temporary spiritual needs are not met.

Ignore one’s own value and pay too much attention to others.

SOLUTIONS

Temporarily satisfy spiritual needs

Put down your phone and divert your attention

Calm down and focus on yourself

Go out and relax


ATMOSPHERE

QUESTIONNAIRE

People have different needs, but they all prefer to do what they want and feel relaxed.


SENSORY EFFECTS Starting from the senses

I didn't think about taste because it is subjective and difficult to experiment with.

90% of the information comes from vision. Color has the biggest impact.

EXPERIMENT About sensory

THINKING PROCESS Sketch & Model


THE STORYBOARD

FORCE ANALYSIS

I also want to take a walk by the sea...But...

FOMO When you can’t control yourself.

Take out the blindfold.

Adjust the volume.

Push your phone into the ‘for-free’ box Then the box starts working.

The box senses and blows the wind with the sea flavor.

Put the blindfold back.

Project 3

A modular office cooperative equipment for better collaboration. 8 weeks 2019.05


Background Analysis The social competition is more and more vigorous, and continuous innovation thinking and development is the trend of the times. It is necessary for us to reconsider the design of the office space.

Artificial Intelligence Natural language processing and artificial intelligence technology have been integrated into our daily life.

Big Data The power of big data is getting more and more stronger, providing deeper insights and helping companies achieve their digital transformation plans.

5G The main advantage of the 5G network is that the data transfer rate is faster than the current network speed. Another advantage is its lower network latency (less than 1 millisecond), while 4G is 30-70 milliseconds.


Traditional Conference Space

Needs to wait

Low participation in remote meeting

The idle conference room wastes space

Serious atmosphere inhibits creativity

Poor office environment

New Conference Space 1. Companies like Wework and Regus can provide office space and rent at any time according to your needs. 2. Be more free and more relaxed but will never affect the formal atmosphere of the meeting.

3. Small collaborative spaces are gradually adapting to various needs of people.

However, the study found that audiovisual technology in most small collaborative spaces is not perfect. Frost & Sullivan points out that less than 2% of the world's 32 million small conference rooms support video conferencing.


User Research

Respondent Feedback

The data are based on an online survey of workplace needs in the Asia-Pacific region published by Polycom in 2018.The survey conducted a mixed survey of white-collar jobs. More than 62% of respondents work in large organizations with 500 - 10 000 employees, while the remaining 37% work in small and medium-sized enterprises with 1 - 499 employees.

96% of respondents said that collaborative technology can help them work more efficiently.

More than 60% of all countries surveyed in the AsiaPacific region use collaborative technology as the preferred tool for knowledge transfer.

More than 50% of respondents preferred to use collaborative technology in small meeting rooms.

74% of Asia-Pacific respondents are using audio, video and content sharing to connect with remote participants.

Companies in all Asia Pacific countries or regions surveyed have at least 3-5 small meeting areas.

60% of respondents in the Asia-Pacific region said they would be happy to use collaborative technology.

The market not only has a large demand for small conference space equipment, but also needs to be improved in many aspects.

1. Small collaboration spaces are often used for internal meetings, creative workshops and customer meetings.

2. Contact with remote participants is an important agenda for employees in the Asia-Pacific region.

3. Nearly half of Chinese and Indian respondents may use small meeting spaces three to five times a week.

4. Audio conferencing and content sharing are the most useful technologies in small collaboration space.


Why do people use small collaboration spaces?

Pay attention to the communication between people.

Contact the person outside the meeting Internet access

Teleworkers need to feel the company's culture in depth.

Project 4

EYES MEET LIGHT Installation Art Design 4 weeks 2019.09

I am a willful child. I want to draw a lot of windows on the earth, so that the eyes that are used to darkness get used to the light. —GU CHENG


Poet Introduction Gu Cheng He is also known as the poet of "Spiritual Romanticism", not to be a fairy tale poet. He focuses on pure and beautiful things in nature and creates an ideal world of fairy tales. He is a born poet. Gu Cheng’s early fairy tale poems are simple in language, with the characteristics of children's language. They are ethereal and pure. Their sentences are usually very short, and their artistic conception is very beautiful. The exquisite artistic sense combines all sounds, colors and light to create a wonderful world. Gu Cheng's poems are naturally formed, which are far away from the complicated social life, but he is close to the true state of the quiet and cosmic life.

Atmosphere romantic

He and his wife

Research His poems make me smile, let me feel the sunshinine on my face, perceive that the light and shadow are interlaced, pure and beautiful, which just like a refracted stained glass, also like a wonderful world seen through sugar paper.

Space

Material

His poetry reminds me of some transparent, colorful and childhood-related materials.

“Let all eyes that are used to darkness get used to the light. "I thought of using light and dark contrasts throughout the space, and multiple light sources bring visual impact.

Form

Shadow

His poem "I want to draw a lot of windows on the earth, let the eyes that are used to darkness get used to the light" reminds me of the form of light and windows.

Different materials have different shapes of shadows.


Brainstorm



I AM A WILLFUL CHILD



- I want to draw a lot of windows on the earth, so that the eyes that are used to darkness get used to the light.



 

 



  







 

 

      







 



Maybe I am the mother-spoilt child. I am willful, I hope every moment as beautiful as colorful pencils. I hope can draw on the beloved white papers, to draw the clumsy freedom. To draw an eye that never weeps. To draw a piece of sky. A feather and a leaf belonging to the sky, a green night and an apple.


Experiment Three

Experiment Two

Experiment One

Design Experiments Beginning

Material selection

Lighting selection

I tried to pile the sugar paper into a transparent plastic ball and observe the effect of light. I found that the reflection of light is not obvious.

I tried the reflection of the mirror. The objects in the mirror are inaccessible, but they are real, like a beautiful dream. And the mirror can make full use of the light.

This time I used an LED bulb, but it was too big to cover and not pretty either.

Glue selection

Lighting selection

I tried to paste the sugar paper into the transparent ball, but found that 502 glue would fade the sugar paper.

This time I used some mini bulbs, but I could not turn them all on or off at once.

Expocy experiment

Lighting selection

I tried to pour the crystal epoxy into the shredded sugar paper and found that it worked well under the light. However, I found that if too much epoxy is poured at one time, it will cause the paper to fade and deform the mold.

I used LED light belt this time, but its fixing method is complicated.


Models

The first model

I tried different lights in warm and cold tones, and found the white LED light to be the most suitable. However, the sugar paper piles underneath, looked not beautiful enough.

Spatial distribution

The second model

Warm light source makes the overall color yellow, lacking a pure and transparent feeling. In addition, the black background is too dark.

New model

I tried to place a sphere filled with transparent epoxy on a flat light box. The effect was excellent, the color was pure and filled with fairy tale feeling.


Making Process Pour transparent epoxy resin and sugar paper into the container.

Large molds need to be poured several times separately, then left to cool.

Collect sugar paper. Then shred them.

Cut the mirror sticker into a round hole of the appropriate size; then build a 40 cm cube with the plate.

Paste the mirror sticker on the square box, and finally stick the square box on the light box. Stick the hemisphere to different positions of the box.

Remove the protective film, paste and finish.


She hasn't seen the dark clouds, her eyes are always the color of clear sky, her eyes are always on me. —GU CHENG


I hope every moment is as beautiful as a pastel. —GU CHENG
