The Radio Backpack Station is selected out of 384 submissions from 70 countries for the Climate Action Challenge of What Design Can Do!
During Dutch Design Week 2017 the Low & Bonar in4nite project will be launched. In4nite is an exceptional collaboration between Low & Bonar, marketleader in high performance materials and ten designers with substantial background in various disciplines.
The Radio Backpack project of former Age of Wonderland fellow Iman Abdurrahman and Studio Joris de Groot is selected by WSIS (World Summit on the Information Society) as Champion for category 12 e-environment. The mobile radio station functions as a mini-database by collecting and sharing data to predict future natural disasters such as tsunamis and volcanic eruptions. This is just one step away to winning the major prizes. The announcement of its main winner will be during the WSIS Forum 2017, 12-16 June, in Geneva.
Studio Joris de Groot is invited to show their work during the Fashion & Design festival in Arnhem. Together with the other designers from his workshop building HE Studio’s, they have build an interesting pop-up expo. Which is based on the idea that it should be experienced from outside the exhibition space.
They turned an empty store in the centre of Arnhem in a pop-up exhibition which can be seen as an threedimensional haute couture window shopper.
Exhibition: 2 June till 3 July (doors open every Saturday)
