This has been the driving force for coming out with new ideas, be it concept cars or hybrid fuels, the motto is keep improving! On the same lines comes the 1963 Corvette inspired speed boat concept. Designed by Swedish designer Bo Zolland, the concept uses many of the design features of the 1963 Corvette including even the split rear window, rounded windscreen, tapering rear roofline, and side windows, and the louvered deck hood.

Entry to the 1963 Corvette speed boat concept is via the Gullwing doors. As Inside is the seating for five people. The Proposed power for the concept comes from a variety of engines with the maximum horsepower output of 550 hp with the estimated top speed being 70 knots.

INBOX Digitize and Manage Paper Documents by ENTWURFREICH and Christoph Ptok

Who wouldn’t agree, that the increased use of digital media hasn’t contributed at all to a visible reduction in daily paper consumption? To the contrary, the increased use of personal computers and printers from the 1970s up to today’s heavy use of PCs, smartphones and tablets linked to printers has caused a sevenfold paper consumption. Take alone Germany, where during 2004 in the range of up to 800.000 tons of paper for administrative purposes were used. This piles up to a 16,000 km paper tower, assuming 80g/m² paper weight. Imagine, the international space station ISS would pass by such a paper tower at a base level of 400 km during its orbital journey.

When does the paperless era start?

In order to introduce the paperless era, we need first a simple and intuitive means to translate analog papers easily into digital formats. Current available solutions for digitizing are associated with a rather complex and painful experience for the user. As a result, handling of a physical folder is still more intuitive and faster than the user experience in current digital systems. Although, filing, storage and retrieval of paper documents within folders has proven to be effective, it has to be said, that this paper-based process does require an underlying process of discipline and self-structuring.

So, the problem is not the availability of fit-for-purpose technology, but rather the fact, that the needs of consumers are not fully understood. Traditional suppliers of products serving the transition of analog to digital document formats are looking first of all for stepwise incremental technological improvements. They neither question the general product concept nor do they focus on a basic redesign of the customer’s product handling experience.

Based on this assessment, industrial designer Christoph Ptok and Entwurfreich initiated a cooperation to explore, how an innovative process for digitizing and maintaining print media could look like.

How to simplify the process of digitizing?
How to support optimally the transition from analog to digital media?

Introducing : INBOX

INBOX is a concept for the 21st century impacting the transition from analog to digital universe. The combination of scanner, storage box and app-based interface enables a simple process of document management.

Felipe Campolina Designed A Skyscraper With Portable Housing

As the space in our cities disappears little by little, a young architect named Felipe Campolina, came up with a solution, which not only is beautiful it also minimizes the impact on nature. Felipe inspired himself from a movement in Japan postwar. In the 50s, there was a group of architects called Metabolist. They worked with prefabricated units. Having this noted down, Felipe started the design of a portable house unit. This was developed with a construction system that approaches both, environmental and social issues. The unit is made of standard OSB plate, thus defining flexible living areas that can be progressively coupled and adequate for transport. The unit is also equipped with windows in tempered glass, green roof and walls and a system that allows the reuse of water. Once the portable unit has been given it’s final touch, the creation of the skyscraper that will be composed of hundreds of these portable housing units was taking shape.
