Infinitum Table by Lou

infinitum_table_lou_1

Infinitum is an arduino-powered table that turns on when items are placed on it, and which turns off when they are removed. This table is designed for people who never tidy up, but leave their belongings everywhere. The designer decided to design a table that would light up when objects were placed on it, giving people a beautiful backdrop for their objects and the illusion of an infinitely deep hole in the floor. This would also encourage users to tidy up before they left a room because the light would only switch off once there was nothing left on the table.

house-RIIHI-by-OOPEAA-1
This private residence in Alajärvi, Finland was completed in 2014, and was designed by OOPEAA (Office for Peripheral Architecture). The house blends in with the surrounding landscape through its shape and materials. The composition subtly recalls the feeling of a traditional Finnish farm, in which wooden cottages were arranged so as to form a protected inner courtyard with the buildings facing the courtyard. In this case, the three buildings, the house, the atelier and the garage, give shape to an intimate garden, creating an optimal microclimate around the house by minimizing the impact of the northerly winds blowing in the valley.
