  3. 3. Mitosis Couch by Philip Quiros for ZERO1 This innovative project is more than a piece of furniture. It is a poetic expression about yearning to be something more. The couch represents a wing chair dreaming to become something it is not, and – as it is stretched and pulled to its breaking point – it finds that it can be only be what it has always been: a wing chair. The objective was to use a piece of furni- ture to express humanity’s desire to trans- form itself – however Philip Quiros took it a step further and built a beautiful and thought provoking couch that can actually sit two people quite comfortably - blending function with poetry through the magic of design and innovation.

  4. 4. XStat by Ziba for RevMedx Despite better body armor, bleeding to death remains a leading killer of soldiers on the battlefield. To save those with deep, noncompressible hemorrhages, Army med- ics needed a fast, foolproof solution that left their hands free to return fire or assist other wounded. Startup RevMedx had part of the solution, but needed help making it real. Ziba designed the right delivery mechanism for RevMedx’s revolutionary bleeding solu- tion: XStat. A one-handed applicator deploys compressed sponges, quickly and reliably, without tools or setup. XStat stops life-or-death bleeding in 15 seconds, with no need for continued manual pressure.

  5. 5. Renovo R5 Aero by Ken Wheeler for Renovo Bicycles This innovative bike features a lightweight, hollow, un-reinforced hardwood frame. The outer wood on this bike is wenge, the inner is fiddleback maple, stained gray. The R5 Aero is the road version of the popular triathlon frame featuring Renovo’s buttery-smooth yet carbon stiff and quiet ride quality. This combination is unequaled by any other frame material because wood is a natural shock absorber. The R5 features an aerodynamic seatmast and downtube, aero-shrouded rear wheel, internal headset and internal cabling or electronic shift wiring.

  6. 6. Salt and Pepper Mills by Scot Herbst for Slice As opposed to most other mills, this sim- ple, yet recolutionary vessel design allows you to elegantly pour the salt or pepper on your food – avoiding residue on the table. Additionally, the mill is made with a dia- mond-shape ceramic grinding mechanism that never rusts, is non-allergenic, odor free and exceptionally hygienic.

  7. 7. Dropp! Bowl by Niels Romer for MENU This silicon bowl has attitude and is an intriguing alternative to traditional think- ing – designed to serve fruit or bread in an innovative new way or simply function as a decorative container for keys, coins, and stuff. The unconventional shape of the bowl orig- inates from the image of a splash of paint frozen in time. Dropp! has a smooth shiny inside and a mat cool outside.

  8. 8. Bobble Water Bottle by Karim Rashid for Move Collective Bobble is made from recyclable materials, is free of BPA and features a replaceable carbon filter. Just fill the clever bottle with tap water and the charcoal filter pulls out impurities before you take a nice, refreshing sip.

  9. 9. Nike Free Flyknit by Nike Labs for Nike The Flyknit Racer, featherlight shoes feel more like a sock atop a sole. Created from knit threading rather than multiple layers of fabric, this revolutionary design required a complete rethink of Nike’s manufacturing process. The result is a shoe that’s more environmentally friendly and could reduce long-term production costs. Nike Free Flyknit was developed in close collabora- tion with Nike Sport Reseach Lab, a group of Nike scientists who focus on physiology, biomechanics, perception, and athlete per- formance to inform product development.

  10. 10. Photo Anagram by Ken Holden with BeMUZE Ken Holden developed BeMUZE, an iPhone app to provide a creative playground for anyone to explore pattern formation from any photograph. In this example, Ken started with a photo of moss covered branches, and using the BeMUZE app, he transformed the simple picture into a geometrically complex pattern that is both organic as well as precisely engineered. The app allows users of any age, cultural background, or talent level to create sophisticated designs without the need of artistic or technical knowledge. The innovative BeMUZE app serves to demistify design complexity through a simple and elegant user interface. The app is being used to generate patterns for a wide variety of applications from corporate branding to museum artwork.

  11. 11. Facet Knife by Alfredo Muccino and Scot Herbst for Slice Inspired by technology and humanity, this innovative knife features a multifaceted handle design that is remarkably ergo- nomic. The purpose of the Slice brand is to turn ordinary experiences (like cutting a piece of bread) into experiences that enrich our quality of life through the simple use of beautiful products that work extraordi- narily well. The knife incorporates ceramic blades, which are non-allergenic and highly hygienic, with an innovative numbering system that allows people to identity the knife while still in the knife holder.

  12. 12. 3D Printed Jewelry by Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg for Nervous System Nervous System is an experimental design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. Drawing inspiration from natural phenomena, they write computer programs based on pro- cesses and patterns found in nature and use those programs to create unique and affordable art, jewelry, and housewares with rapid prototyping methods by which all unique pieces can be manufactured at very low costs.

  13. 13. Adaptation of a copy of a 4th century B.C. Greek statue by Zack Dougherty 1:7 Scale model kit Nylon 3D Print 2013 3D scanned data derived from 26 digital images of the copy found in the MET and modeled using a 3D computer graphics program. The sinuous leaning pose of this youth brings to mind the famous statue of Pothos, the personification of erotic longing, that was much copied in the Roman period.

  16. 16. Victory Font by Plazm Design: Gus Nicklos, Joshua Berger, and Pete McCracken for Nike Victory is Nike’s official corporate font. Prior to its development Nike utilized Futura and Avenir as their primary typographic identity. Victory takes inspiration from both faces but uniquely embodies characteris- tics of the brand for which it was designed. As Nike states so eloquently in their brand manual: “It’s not about telling you what to say. It’s about providing a common lan- guage with which to say it.” With the Victory font, that is just what Plazm did. Innovation by Design An exhibition at Liquid Space PDX. Sponsored by Liquid Agency.
