VALENTIN LINDAU &
INTERACTIVE OBJECT, 2021
Enlightened by touch. You need at least two hands. Immediate, simultaneous contact. When three pairs of hands meet in an artistic interplay, the box not only shimmers brightly, but in a play of colours. The white box within the box was created using 3D printing and has a tricky interior that allows people and lighting technology to interact.
* ‘Dreimalzwei’ (Thricetwo) relates to the three pairs of hands and to ‘Zweineins’ (Twoinone), the title of the first semester project that I had taught at the beginning of Jonas’ and Valentin’s studies. / Dominik Harborth
Valentin Lindau & Jonas Schneider (Berlin/Germany) are product and interaction designers. The name of her studio – hint – stands for human interaction design. Don’t be afraid of autonomous systems: If you want to know exactly what a cobot is, what robots could learn from humans, how complex processes can be made more understandable and what digital services could do for us, you can find out at studio hint. Of course, they can also develop “real” products.
Dear Jonas, Dear Valentin, although we met purposefully by coincidence on the empty street in front of my office, I am happy about our planned walks, even when it was cold.
