ALIS is a bench design for Battery Park, a territory that serves as a platform for exploration in the design of public space. This bench is constructed by utilizing the process of renewable plastic injection molding. This process is a common form of method for manufacturing plastic products, usually you can find the application in urban playful equipment. Once user engages with ALIS, the lightness of this object re-informs user’s understanding of initial static nature of the object.
ALIS acknowledges this well established vernacular not for its style, but rather for its desire to exist simultaneously as commodity and art. The structuring of this desire, rooted in functional and economic logic, becomes the formal and material expression of ALIS. ALIS efficiently redistributes external forces through its composite skin system. This skin system maintains a constant surface enclosure thickness while responding to areas of higher impact stress by the integration of fiber bundles. The networking of these bundles comes together to form deeper cross sections in material thickness thus providing optimum structural integrity. Subversive by day, these strands emerge as the sun sets to establish an alternate formal dimension.

Tuvie has received “ALIS Battery Park Bench Design” project from our ‘Submit A Design‘ feature, where we welcome our readers to submit their design/concept for publication.
Anna Gotha has designed a heating installation that you can take anywhere with you. The idea behind this concept is that the existing radiators take up too much room wit conservative design. With this new radiator, Anna has made the radiator become portable and at the same time great design. This new radiator is named modulo, you can add or remove modules as desired, use your space as optimally as possible. The modules are designed with an upholstered aluminium core that gives you the opportunity to use the installation as a piece of furniture to lean up against.
When children start learning to ride a bike, some of them find that the learning process is pretty scary. They need to balance themselves, falling off the bike is unavoidable, even with most protective parents. Jyrobike attempts to remove the frustration and anxiety from your children when they learn to ride a bike, it’s an auto balance bike that keeps the rider upgright and stable, even when they tip or wobble.
The unique control hub built inside the front wheel makes this bike a magical one, it is inspired by well known scientific laws which you usually find in all gyroscopes or flywheels. It would be easier for your children to ride a bike with this technology.
Bicycle becomes more stables when it runs at higher speeds, therefore, by placing fast spinning disc inside the front wheel, the gyroscopic force will automatically balance the bike. As a child starts to wobble, Jyrobike helps to correct the steering and stabilizes both the rider and the bike. Thanks to its fast spinning disc that simulates high speed stability even while running at very slow speeds.
