Oiko Imagery

OiKo is a design office and materials consultancy firm focused on the transition towards circular economy. They design both from the knowledge of the matter and the user’s perception. They understand sustainability in design, as the study of the the environmental impact of both materials and energy, but also as a coherent response to the industrial, economical and brand needs.

Oiko required a way of communicating their extensive knowledge on matter, since material research is the base of their work.

The first +Halle’s Annual Briefing, Dwelling, centers on the deficit of moments to oneself in public spaces, and the human experience of seeking those moments out in the most public of places.

The first of these collections is Levels, by Form Us With Love, a bench system combining three heights and three lengths to create subtle divisions between people.

By sitting at different heights, different directions, and distances from one another, Levels can break the monotony of a space.

Out of Sight

“Glass ceiling” is a term used to describe the invisible barrier that keeps a given demographic from rising beyond a certain level within a hierarchy. The “Out of Sight” project reflects on gender inequality within the professional world, where women not only have lower salaries than their male counterparts, but also have fewe opportunities to progress in their careers. These three interactive objects invite the participants to manipulate them in a certain way, revealing invisible dysfunctionalities - a physical reinterpretation of the glass ceiling concept.

Sisters was a contemporary art and design exhibition that showcased and celebrated female perspectives, held on the 8th of Marth 2019. Together with Alejandra Perini, the project Out of Sight was created exclusively for the show. Curated by Sanna Völker for Ox Poblenou.

Objectar el Món

Objectar el Món is an event based around the role of designers in tackling the key problem of our time: the need to rethink ways of coexistence between human and non-human forms of life with the goal of ensuring their – and our – survival.

To this end, we invited product design professionals to bring an object that, in their opinion, meets the material, functional, methodological, consumption or production characteristics needed in order to cease the destruction of the environment, or even initiate processes to restore it. All the objects were exhibited to form a heterogeneous landscape that gives testimony to the diversity of problems we face, and also, the variety of positions we have to face them. A group of experts from different fields guided us through this landscape to broaden the common perspectives of the design scene on issues related to ecology.
