  2. 2. HEAD OR TAILS Tossing the coin will have the last result, HEAD OR TAILS will create different sensations, each side has different colours as well as different textures. Rome, June 2003 Product Designer: Elena Leurini
  3. 3. (S)TOOL (S)tool is made out of one sheet of one meter squared alumium foil, which is one millimeter thick. My aim of this design was to design a chair that could have as less wasted material as possible. According to this principle, I have used the technique of scoring and folding the aluminium sheet. In such a way, I have made use of the mechanic features that belong to this material, letting the aluminium plate communicate itself on its own. Eindhoven, December 2007 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  4. 4. (S)TOOL Eindhoven, December 2007 Product Designer: Elena Leurini
  5. 5. HARVEST HARVEST is a door handle, which produces itself on its own, following the time of Nature. By hanging a lock to a brunch, over time the wood will incorporate the piece. Eindhoven, June 2008 Story Designer: Elena Leurini
  6. 6. HARVEST Therefore, after a few years, during the process of logging, it is possible to harvest door handles! Eindhoven, June 2008 Product Designer: Elena Leurini
  7. 7. MANGIARE MANGIARE is a hay-box that warms up food by solar energy. This concept design is aimed at letting people experience the use of alternative energy on a daily basis. On a bigger scale, such a product would allow us to save big amounts of fossil carbon fuel. sucker sucker screw food Eindhoven, December 2008 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  8. 8. T(H)REE T(H)REE is a sustainable method to generate morphologies from natural shapes. Beneath the surface, amongst living creatures there are powerful connections which are asymmetric, deep and touching. Natural links are rooted in our own soul. Rome, March 2006 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  9. 9. T(H)REE Rome, March 2006 Applied concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  10. 10. T(H)REE Rome, March 2006 Applied concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  11. 11. THE FOREST OF PRODUCTS Trolleis Trolleis K K NOW HOW IT COULD BE THE FOREST OF PRODUCTS: THE FOREST OF PRODUCTS is a study about an alternative way to organize supermarkets. The starting point of this study was my observation that inherently through their design, supermarkets have the tendency to imposed superficial values of our society through advertising and controlling the passage of people, on a subconscious level. The aim of such a study is to look for solutions that can have the tendency to empower people and to be aware about their choices within the everyday grocery purchasing experience. Eindhoven, December 2007 Concept for a supermarket Designer: Elena Leurini
  12. 12. THE FOREST OF PRODUCTS Trolleis Trolleis Trolleis Trolleis Trolleis Trolleis K K K K K K A floor path could guide the customers amongst the products in a better A physical barrier could separate local The size of the colums could be related comunicative way, therefore not products, closer to the entrance, from to the output of the products. guiding the custode through aisles that imported ones’. they dont really need to go. Eindhoven, December 2007 Variety of the concept for a supermarket Designer: Elena Leurini
  13. 13. THE FOREST OF PRODUCTS NOW HOW IT COULD BE The hierarchy of products in supermarkets follows the logic of the eye-level. In such a way, customers are pushed to buy what marketing wants...is it possible dispose the products avoiding the marketing logic in order to let the customers free to choose what they really need? is it possible to lenghten the sight view? Eindhoven, December 2007 Concept for a different disposition of products Designer: Elena Leurini
  14. 14. PLAYNERGY Nowadays, the problem of over-consumption of electric energy is louder and louder in western societies. Within the context of the household, PLAYENERGY helps to decrease electric consumption by ringing when the amount of energy used in one room is too high or to low (stand-by). In such a way it advices the user and keeps him/her aware about electric consumption. Eindhoven, June 2008 Product Designer: Elena Leurini and Gionata Gatto
  15. 15. PLAYNERGY offers people the possibility to have discounts on their PLAYNERGY electricity bill by living them the possibility to visualise how much Energy they are consuming and therefore allowing them the consume within a given amount. Such a chance can be monitored through a web-site, where it is possible to check out in real time the amount of their electric consumption and create a friends network who are accessing the same information. Their discount increases according to the amount of friends who consume within that amount. Thus, PLAYNERGY pushes to cooperate, not to compete! Eindhoven, June 2008 System Designer: Elena Leurini and Gionata Gatto
  16. 16. ECO-BAG In-and-out, in-and-out, in-and-out. It describes the way we throw away products in our lives. The ECO-BAG helps to turn plastic net fruit bags and recording tapes into elegant night bags. Essen, July 2004 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  17. 17. KNITTED TAPE KNITTED TAPE is a charming and cheap material which appears to be more expensive because of its shiny exterior. It is a combination of an old industrial technology, such as knitting is, and a material which has never been used for this purpose before: recording tape. Rome, October 2004 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  18. 18. RE-BUILDING BAGS The building-bags are used only once and then they are thrown away, even if they are still usable. As I think that wasted materials are a resource, I’ve designed a range of bags, completely made out of building-bags. Brighton, June 2006 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  19. 19. MARCIASIEDI MARCIASIEDI is a system of seats with variable configurations for urban spaces and in particular for the context of Rome where there is a lot of reconstruction of existing buildings. It is designed by recycling the boards of the pedestrian paths, which are dismitted after reconstructional works. In this way, MARCIASIEDI reintroduces the same material in the same urban space, but with a different function. Rome, May 2007 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  20. 20. MARCIASIEDI The arrangement of the units, different according to their surfaces, allows spaces which are not linear, thus more coherent to instintive behaviour of human nature, inviting people to communicate each other. Granite Travertine Travertine Rome, May 2007 Configurations Designer: Elena Leurini
  21. 21. MARCIASIEDI The variety of disposed reconstruction materials depend on the historical period that the pedestrian paths were made. Differences in materials can include –travertine or granite-, sections, lenght and texture. Both, travertine and granite, are not metamorphic rocks and such a feature guarantees long term user durability. 250 Granite 250 Travertine 250 Travertine 200 250 250 Rome, May 2007 How it is made Designer: Elena Leurini
  22. 22. MARCIASIEDI The boards of the pedestrian paths become urban seats throug easy and regular works, such as cuts and holes. Furthermore, it’s possible to bring the stone back to its original colour by sanding its surface. - LT Rome, May 2007 Exploded Designer: Elena Leurini
  23. 23. MARCIASIEDI MARCIASIEDI is a product which belongs to the city either under a daily or historical profile: it is a sign which belongs to the collective imagery. Thanks to its strong identity, as well as, its flexible nature, Marciasiedi fits everywhere: central and surround areas, green and urban spaces. Rome, May 2007 Contexts Designer: Elena Leurini
  24. 24. STYLOKORN STYLOKORN is an edible material which can be wrapped around the equipment packed in carton boxes that are sent to emergency situations. This helps to turn wasted spaces into helpful ones, taking alternative tasty food along. Essen, February 2004 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  25. 25. STYLOKORN Packaging graphic design Essen, February 2004 Box Designer: Elena Leurini
  26. 26. SPLASH! SPLASH! is a new packaging for pasta which proposes the item as a portion, allowing customers to purchase only the amount of product they need. It has been developed according to two observations: that dried food doesn’t really need a packaging, especially if it has to be cooked in boiling water, and that pasta can stick to each other with a little water. Eindhoven, October 2007 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
  27. 27. SPLASH! Labels and information about the product can be signed by heat on a piece of lasagna and stuck on the portion, in order to eat the whole item. Eindhoven, October 2007 Story Designer: Elena Leurini
  28. 28. BANANAS’ STAMP As banana’s peel changes colour when a pressure occurs on it, why don’t we use such a natural feature and stamp the information directly on the peel instead of using unnecessary stickers? Zurich, January 2008 Concept Designer: Elena Leurini
