When I want to mark a book I always put a paper in the page to mark, but with this it’s much better because the Bookmarker, witch is thinner than a human air, can mark books and never lose them because it has nifty strap that wraps around my book, can write and erase with the pen and can have post tits. With this I never lose my place again, and never lose my bookmark.

Thinner, Intelligent.

This artifact its composed by tree peaces the principal, witch has the post tits and the pen, the nifty strap to put around the book when the bookmarker is inside the book, and the post tits to put inside the principal part. The post tits are a movable part. This artifact is all in plastic, unless the nifty strap, so to have the form that the maker has to be used, has a technique for producing the molding. The bookmarker it’s assembled to the nifty strap by a node on the point of the bookmarker, and the post tits are pasted in the spot made for them in the bookmarker. Because it’s made in plastic this object is recycling.

Simple, Normal.

The Bookmarker is an object in plastic but it has parts that aren’t, like the nifty strap, which is an elastic, and the post tits, witch are paper. This object is projected to be in contact with a person always but it can have two functions, can write or simply can be used to mark some book when the person stops to read, so its always projected for a person but it is an multifunction object. I think that the color of the object is very simple, normal and soft. The object is very thin, ergonomic and light because this object is done in plastic.

Practical, Multifunctional.

This object has a lot of functions but the main function is to mark books, but he has also post tits to glue on the books and he has a pen that writes and erases. I think that the form of this objected speaks for it self, in other words I think that by the form you know that the object is a bookmarker and that it has post its, and a pen, because it is very clear. I also think that the form is adaptable to the hand and the material, witch is plastic, is soft and light, so that makes the artifact very comfortable and easy to grab and write. In my opinion this object is used to complement something, because you only use him when you are reading something so you can write on the book, or put the post tits, or mark the book. So to use this bookmarker a book is always needed.

The positive aspects oh this artifact are that is a multifunctional object and because it is very light and ergonomic to write.

The object can modify the book if the person writes on the book, but if the person only uses the Bookmarker as a bookmarker, he doesn’t modify the book because the object is very thin to spoil the book.

When I’m reading a book I always underlining words or phrases and the Markerfool is basically a portable color printer that is designed to provide a wide range of colors which helps me to understand better the underlining and I don’t have to have more markers. The gadget has a touch screen display that shows the right color for me to use, so I can do the color that I want without having more markers but just having one.

Uncomfortable, Functional.

This artifact is composed by a lot of peaces, in the exterior he has the pen cap and the principal body witch is composed by a touch screen and in the interior it has all the electronically part. The electronically part has tree devices that allows the marker to do colors, that are the rechargeable batteries, the color transform chip and the CMYK ink box, that is filled with four basic colors. This marker is composed by tree geometric primitive parts two rectangles twitch one his cute in one point, and a square, which it’s cut in one of the points to. This object has a pen cap, which is a square, and movable part and it is connected to the main body by fitting. This artifact is all in plastic, unless the touch screen, so to have the form that the maker has to be used, has a technique for producing the molding. Because it’s made in plastic this object is recycling.

Clean, Light.

This artifact it’s composed by to different materials that are the plastic, witch is in the main body and in the cap pen, and the glass, which is in the touch screen. This object is used only when he is in contact with a person because it is a marker and to write he needs a person, so he was projected for persons. I think that the white and the black are two colors very clean, simply and practical because this colors look good with everything and because it has the touch screen in black, we can understand the different parts that composed the artifact. The chosen material it’s very good for a marker because it’s very light, soft and practical.

Innovation, Smart.

This artifact has two main function witch is underline words or phrases or do drawings in papers to experience the color and that is very important when I’m studying or simply reading a book or simply drawing, but this artifact it’s always used to complement an action. I think that the form of this objected doesn’t look like a marker at all, it looks like a USB disk and to understand how this works its very hard to understand, you always have to have instructions to learn how that works. In my opinion the form of the marker doesn’t look very comfortable to the hand because it’s very square and should be more round. This artifact is mainly used when we are in contact with the reading because his main function is too complementary a reading of any book (studying book, book to entertain or magazines), so this artifact his for individual use.

The positive aspects are that it’s a marker very practical because you only have to have one marker because he has every color you need and because of the chosen material that is very light and soft. The negative aspects are the form of the marker because I think that is not very ergonomic. I think that the artifact could be improved if the form was more round to be more ergonomic.

This object it’s made to change books in a reversible way because the marker servers to underline words or phrases or to draw something in papers so we cant erase what as been written.

The positive aspects of the artifact are the size, shape, mechanism adaptability and lighting system. The negative aspect is not being on the market yet. The artifact could be improved if it were produced in other colors.

While we’re reading or studying and we need to underline something, we use a normal, pen or pencil, most of the times when you don’t have a precise hand the lines are winding so it doesn’t look very nice. This device helps to draw straight lines without using a ruler helping to move the ball in one direction only. First we attach the device to the pen, using the installed measuring wheel indicated on the product, we can draw the exact desired line length in both a horizontal and vertical direction, as well as strokes in 45 degree angles.

Rectangular and with a wheel

The Constrained Ball has more than one element, the support for the pen or pencil, the mounting area is made​with a flexible rubber material helping it adhere to the attached pen or pencil and the wheel. This masterpiece, which held the writing support is has also the display that measure the line. The wheel allows us to draw the exact line length both horizontal and vertical direction, as well as strokes in 45 degree angles. It’s an object with a moving part, the wheel, that allow us to move only in one way direction avoiding winding lines. The object is not recyclable.

Practical and useful

The device is designed to run straight lines without effort and in a simple and practical way it performs multiple functions. The main function is to run straight lines (underline). The secondary is to be able to length lines in both horizontal and vertical directions, as well as strokes in 45 degrees angles. It is easy to use and comfortable as it overrides the effort of trying to make a straight line. The device comes into contact and is related to reading and the support because it is used to underline text, therefor, influence the reading in the sense that emphasizes aspects that were previously read, easing later to identify them, also alters the media (book, magazine …). It is used together with a book or a support to scratch, it can be used only per one person each time. This devise can be replaced by the ruler, it is a suitable replacement for the same result, though less practical. It’s made​for young (from more or less 10 years old) and old people, but it’s most indicated to adults and can be used in a private or public space. The time is unlimited, it depends in what we need to underline.The positive is that you can do strait lines in a quicker and comfortable way. The negative is that you lose control of the training of you’re hands to do strait lines.
This product could be improved if it were produced in several different colors, it would be a way to please everyone like certain age groups like children who are repeatedly stimulated by color and shape of objects. Eventually it could be created pieces with the colors of the various countries Flags however, the color of the device would lose simplicity and minimalism and will become visually tiring for most users.The devise it’s made to change the support, it could be reversible or irreversible. Reversible if you use the pencil without pressing the paper.

The Archive Series has been exhibited for the first time at the Royal Danish Art Academy Fall Show 2005. The main purpose of this library is to blur the borders between art and design creating a way for the reader to travel with their own library. While reading we can actually walk and read at the same time, “the average reader can read about 240 words per minute a 300 page book normally takes 9 hours to read, non stop, if you read while you walk, you can read a book in about 43 kilometers if you read and walk, watch out for traffic”. We can step inside own balance library and reading will coexist as refuge and transport in the imagination.

The circular library is made of only one component, a shelf, this component contains a certain number of books so that you can walk and sit in the library and maintain the same balance. The piece doesn’t contain hinges, however may or may not be a static object because it is a circular piece that moves with the the reader’s interaction. The library is made of wood. In order for the wood to bent precisely, the subject had to be assembled by combining several narrow strips of wood. Once installed the product should not be dismantled, only books are put or taken according to the weight of the user. Being the object of wood it can be recycled.

The bookstore is only made of wood, two huge circular shapes form a giant circular shelf. Every object is made to contact with the reader in the act of reading, both as a support to keep the books as to interact with the reader. The reader may keep books, as well as sit and walk with them simultaneously. The color gives us naturalness, simplicity and tranquility. The material gives us balance, curiosity and comfort.

Indicare 2 tag che identifichino le qualità funzionali dell’artefatto. – Absurd and non functional

This object is thought to interact with the reader in the act of transporting and reading the book together. The main function of this object is to store books, since it functions as a library, but has a secondary function, also important, sitting or walking with the books always bringing the library back. Because it is a different subject matter and a little absurd to understanding not just immediately, only after some observation you can came to the conclusion of its usefulness. The use is not very complicated but is not ether functional or practical. Caring a library, read and move at the same time, without hitting any object, becomes difficult to perform. The object enters into relation with reading in the conduct of transport as in reading. It is impractical to walk and read at the same time so it can be an interesting experiment but the action of reading it could be also difficult. It is to be used individually in progress, if it is stopped, you can sit two people in the object. This object has to be used with shelves full of books otherwise there is imbalance and makes it dangerous to walk together with the object. Can be replaced by other conventional shelf for books as well as a chair but can not perform the same action. It would be a proper replacement, more vulgar and less absurd, however, less fun. This object was made for an exhibition at the Royal Danish Art Academy Fall 2005 Show and Main Library University of Roskilde (public). It’s not being produced for sale to the public, this book can be used by children and adults, however books be placed or taken from the shelf to be proportional with the users weight. Their use is unlimited because when the reader does not use the object to read always use it to keep books. The positives are the possibility to interact with books and reading in a different, creative and dynamic way. The negatives are the lack of functionality and usefulness of the product, as well as the lack of security because it is not a static obstacle, it should not be kept in a domestic environment. The artifact could be improved if it was created a adjoin piece that could hold the book shelf to a certain place (wall, floor,…).

Clear and protective

The primary function of this object is to keep objects and protect them. The understanding of its use is clear, easy and comfortable. The artifact is a support to hold books before or after a reading. It is used by one person, individually and without any object complement. It is not possible to produce the artifact at home or customize it. This showcase has a more oriental aesthetics and its not completely made of glass what is totally different from the normal showcases. This is normally used in a private space. The positive aspects of this artifact are that we can see into the showcase, but not completely, and that the materials are not cold. The downside is that it can be mistaken with a closet.
