Experiencing Local Energy Levels
High energy-consuming appliances have been inextricably linked with the daily life today, we try to expand thinking about how to save energy by design. To learn more about daily objects energy consumption, they have been redesigning a series of products around the theme of 'Erratic Appliances', the series contain too many objects that are located in the home environment. These critical practices seem to embody the importance of energy.
The series of objects expose energy issues, in various ways and direct feedback to user. To increase energy awareness that happens critical design through from within, not by means of external preoccupied by form.
To help users to pay more attention to their consumer behavior and habits, they need to know these material properties related expressions in aesthetics. Thus, they design a series of 'Erratic Appliances' through form and construction questions to show the crisis of global energy consumption. So far, their work has been focussed to make energy related issues, to do this, they have tried to rediscover life around appliances.
Obviously, these erratic appliances are not meant to improve our live or redesign existing designs, but act as a difficult form with might force a hermeneutic reading. This way, the project are mainly purpose for the problem-finding rather than problem-solving. Not only for reflecting upon the ideas of design, but also increasing the poetic distance.
