Rado Unlimited Spirit

SOFTlab is featured in a new section on the Rado website! We are the first in series called Unlimited Spirit. The short film was directed by Yaara Sumeruk. The shoot was a couple of months ago and a lot of fun. We can’t wait for the other spots! and we NEED one of those watches, they are ceramic and probably won’t break even when you are meeting with the worst clients!

Alpha to Zeta

Our good friend Michael Rees asked us to be a part of the show Alpha to Zeta. Michael has developed a sculptural user interface that produces a 3d object based on letters entered through a keyboard. Anyone one can develop a 3d alphabet. It is a great project we saw in the works a longtime ago when we were first starting the studio. the exhibition will include a number of artists that have created alphabets an models. Each model is 3d printed and will be on display. The screen cap above is a picture of our alphabet in action! The opening is this Thursday and will be  alot of fun. Details below:

We sent out the funnel kits to our Mom and Pop pledges for CHROMAtex.me just in time for Christmas. Thank you all for your support!

We designed the packaging and instruction manual in the studio. Carrie definitely got crazy with the CheeseWiz! Check out more images of the packaging after the jump…

SOFTlab @ The Center for Architecture

We will be speaking about our work 6-8pm January 25th at the CFA as part of the New Practices 2010 Lecture series. If you are in town it would be great to see you there. The New Practices Exhibition over the summer gave us a chance to reflect on our work and think about how we got here. The most popular question we get asked is “what do you guys do?” We will hopefully answer this on Thursday through some of our work and we will talk about our biggest design project: our studio.

For full details and to RSVP you can visit the CFA website.
