Some amature (my) photos of the Flat Nouveau Chair prototype at the Helmrinderknecht Design Gallery exhibition at the Vienna Design Week. 6mm aluminum, laser cut, Bent by hand.
Posted by ronenkadushin on September 24, 2012
The Flat Nouveau Chair was designed especially for the Helmrinderknecht Gallery exhibition at the Vienna 2012 Design Week.
This chair takes its inspiration from Art Nouveau, a movement that has strong origins, and presence in Vienna. It is a piece that reflects at more than a century of cultural evolution of this style, from classic motifs, typefaces, 60’s psychedelic art that made an Art Nouveau revival, and commercial use of the style. The chair is a generous and humoristic sculptural expression around Art Nouveau.
The Flat Nouveau Chair has a unique structural configuration and hinge mechanism that were developed by Ronen Kadushin. It is cut from a single sheet, and bent to shape by hand with no need for machines. It is also an Open Design, meaning, anyone can download the design files of the prototype and self produce it or change it.

2—3-07.12, Sala Teatre, CCCB , Barcelona, Spain
I will be a speaker at an the Open Design/ Sharesd Creativity international conference forum that seeks to explore and debate the emerging landscape of openness and exchange that is taking shape around practices such as open code, creative commons licensing, co-creation, de-localisation and collaboration.
Digital technology and social networks have reached a point of maturity from which a new industrial culture is emerging, revolutionising the processes of creation, mediation, distribution and consumption. Taking design in all its expressions and forms as a starting point, the conference will be an important international forum of ideas, working platforms and specialised practices that are transforming the articulation of design with society, economy and culture.
Designers, architects, artists, editors, web activists, programmers, curators, lawyers and cultural analysts will explore over two days the reality and the potential of open design culture, from new business models to the most experimental creative practices.
Conference convenor: Viviana Narotzky, design historian, writer and curator

Three of my Recent Uploads Collection chairs were produced in Japan as part of the “The form of Co-Creation: the reality in the Digital Fabrication Era” exhibition. At the Kyoto City University of Arts Art Gallery.
From the exhibition text: ““Design” means a kind of scheme of interface with synthesizing the innovative network and the production system. In this scheme, artists and designers play very important roles as professionals who critically verify the potentials or vision of our environment, or as incubators who raise the creativity of co-creation through introducing their efforts to users. They are considered as the frontiers of the new world of creation.

"The aim of the Creative Industries Convention 2011 is to examine closely the possibilities of Open Design: is it more than a theory? Can it be used as a new working method or – even as a new business model?"
