Driven by an obsession of how people record and recall memories, MCAD student Kirsten Camara designed the Analog Memory Desk, what could be the ultimate sketching surface. The desk has a built-in mechanism for scrolling 1,100 yards of butcher paper on rolls embedded in its legs, a sort of tablecloth of memory that records months or even years of random ideas, doodles, and coffee rings. The desk isn’t available for purchase, instead Camara released detailed blueprints through a Creative Commons license so you can build your own. (via Design Milk)

Unexpectable Light

December 19, 2010

Unexpectable is an interesting table and light system designed by Jenna Postma, a recent graduate of the art academy of Groningen in Holland. The table surface has an embedded panel that works as a light switch and a small crank on the side that adjusts the level of the light. See a video of it in action. (via design milk)
