Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling

Fabricating the Modern Dwelling
Home  |  Building
An exhibition called Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling is holding in the Museum of Modern Art. This exhibition has invited five architects to each build a house on a vacant New York. One of houses by Massachusetts Institute of Technology associate professor Larry Sass. This project was called Instant House and attempted to "harness the speed and precision of laser cutters to fabricate simple shelters quickly and inexpensively". The design features grooves and notches so that the laser cut plywood panels can interlock without any traditional fasteners. The first prototype was assembled by five students who were equipped with only rubber mallets. Amazingly they were able to fully assemble the entire house in just two days. It's estimated that in large scale production the houses would only cost about $40 000.

Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos 561 Clock by Marc Newson

Jaeger LeCoultre Atmos 561 Clock
Home  |  Clock
Suspended in a bubble block of Baccarat crystal and powered by temperature change, Jaeger LeCoultre's Atmos 561 mechanical clock has been designed by Marc Newson. The Atmos 561 clocks don't need to be wound up. they get all the energy to run from small temperature changes in the encapsulated environment, and can run for years without human intervention. Its power source is a hermetically sealed capsule containing a mixture of gas and liquid ethyl chloride, which expands into an expansion chamber as the temperature rises, compressing a spiral spring; with a fall in temperature the gas condenses and the spring slackens. This motion constantly winds the mainspring. A variation in temperature of only one degree in the range between 15 and 30 degrees Celsius is sufficient for two days' operation. Cool!!

FANAWAY is a retracting blade ceiling fan. When switched off the fan blades automatically retract and conceal, visually transforming the unit into a slim, modern light pendant. Turning on the fan creates a centrifugal force which deploys the blades to circulate air within a room.
