The End Of Warm Beer And Junk Mail As We Know It?

The End Of Warm Beer And Junk Mail As We Know It?

Design Exposure 2007 Opens.

The days of arriving home from work without a cold beer in the fridge are numbered, if the clever idea of a forward-thinking design student becomes a reality.

Huski is a beverage cooling system designed to rapidly lower the temperature of a drink in moments, and without the aid of a power source it has energy saving advantages.

It is one of 30 innovative designs being showcased at Britomart Pavilion for Design Exposure 2007, an exhibition of research projects by graduating students from Massey University’s Auckland School of Design.

The three day event starts on Tuesday 13 November and unveils product designs including the Huski, which converts liquid carbon dioxide contained in an ‘ice stick’ into dry ice for cooling bottled drinks, and Quash Board, a dance mat which promotes vital exercise for children living with diabetes, while assisting with lowering their blood glucose concentration to healthy levels.

Azhar Mohamed, Massey University’s Regional Director Auckland, College of Creative Arts, says the calibre of students’ work this year sit amongst the best the School has seen so far.

“The work being exhibited has come from New Zealand’s emerging designers who have an ability to explore and conceptualise ideas, and who have a talent to think in innovative and divergent ways.

“It is an opportunity for anyone interested in design, be it in a professional or personal capacity, to view the work of, and chat first hand with, the designers of our future - tomorrow’s designers,” he said.

Azhar said the exhibition also highlights the concept of E:Box, a unique letterbox designed to minimise paper waste by accepting downloads of junk mail in digital form, eliminating the need for traditional paper brochures and leaflets.

Other designs include a visual display celebrating the life and achievements of New Zealand racing driver and designer Bruce McLaren.

In their final year of a four year degree, the 30 exhibiting designers are of 200 elite students studying at Massey University’s Auckland School of Design and majoring in transport design, industrial design or visual communication design.

The public exhibition is free to enter, and opens at Britomart Pavilion during 13-14 November, 10am – 6pm and 15 November, 10am – 1pm.
