SEESAW -Info Interactive Object-

SEESAW is an info interactive object that corresponds to various data available via the Internet. It sits there like an interior ornament, and quietly changes its form and color to let you know things you want to be aware of, such as, energy balance between generation and consumption at home, your health condition or maybe how are your stocks performing. It expresses information as a "scenery" in your room, and while we often get numb out of so many "numbers and letters" on displays, SEESAW is a simple approach to live in this info-flooding world of today.

Inspired in collaborations with NTT Smile Energy.
Engineered and prototyped by ripple effect.

Yauchi

Mr.Yauchi is the maestro in cutlery sharpening and finishing in Sakai, a region known for producing high quality cutleries. His elaborate works are condensed into this compact kitchen knife, such as the glittering hairline finish created by a wooden grind whirl used for traditional Japanese cutleries. The octagonal grip was inspired from sashimi knife, which offers adequate feedback to hand for delicate handling, yet the head is carved round for fingers to settle gently for various positions of holding. Those two counter expressions are divided by the diagonal contour, emphasizing the contrast and characterizing the design of this product.
