Open Structures, Lukas Wegwerth

The Open Structures Project is just a great way for open regenerative designing and a real discovery for OWi. It is just a question of picking the right material there. Check it out, it is pretty self-explanatory.

As the berlin based designer Lukas Wegwerth who works really close with the project told us, the project has a bright future.

How to build a regenerative, cradle to cradle, waste-free world? Everything needs to be desgined eceoffective: in a way that is can easily be reused or recycled 100%. A dream also dreamed by OWi.

I am inspired and fascinated by toys for kids for a while now. Construction-kits to build always new things. Constant assembly and dissasembly. Bricks stay the same but worlds change.

For the goal of a regenerative world this is of course a great thing to look at. Yes, how about an easy to use, reuse and recycle kit of widely spreaded metal parts as a basis for real products or at least their skeletal structures?! The parts just need to have a high quality that makes them long-lasting and possible to remelt into new parts of the same quality. With a set of standard-parts we could manage a lot. Everything would need to be be openly arranged: Openness would bet he key to that. If you buy a wasching machine, a dryer, a toaster etc. you know what is inside and that you can easily reuse or resell it.

Solar Sinter – melts sand to glas

english, deutsch

/* english */

Ok. This is not OS. But the idea is simple and pretty convincing: Melt sand into glas-objects just with solar engery and without any chemicals. Glas can return to sand of course with the time. A project by Markus Kayser. Thanx.

/* deutsch */

Ok. Das ist kein Open Source Projekt. Aber die die Idee ist einfach und überzeugend: Mit Sonnenergie und ohne irgendwelche weiteren Chemikalien einfach Sand zu Glasobjekten schmelzen. Das Glas kann natürlich im Laufe der Zeit wieder zu Sand werden. Ein Projekt von Markus Kayser. Danke
