VIZBI 2021

Visualizing Biological Data 2021 Art & Biology

From March 24-26 the VIZBI conference virtually took place at the EMBL in Heidelberg. We were designing and hosting the space for VIZBI. The conference included an Art & Biology event hosted by David Goodsell, coming with a DJ session with DJ David Jackson. We got a lot of positive feedback from the participants.

IDE Superform 2021 SHOW

Innovation Design Engineering exhibiting 45 chairs

From February 19 to 21, our amazing Innovation & Engineering Design Students will showcase their work at the virtual Superform 2021 SHOW. 45 chairs designed by the students are exhibited in the virtual space. The digital show will happen on enabling interactive exploration of the virtual chairs and serendipitous conversations. Each student designed her/his own room around the corresponding chair.
