Athena, your world everywhere

design Eugenia Minerva, 2016

What will happen to the traditional bookshelf when books lose their physical side? This is the question that prompted the creation of the Athena project.

In the last decade, the way we access information on a day-to-day basis has dramatically changed. Items such as books, music and pictures have ceased to be tangible objects to become files existing on the web or in the cloud. With the Internet of Things now a reality, and the presence of devices such as smartphones and tablets increasing in our lives, a revolution in information storage is required.

The answer to this is Athena.

Athena is much more than just an ordinary bookshelf. Thanks to an embedded Raspberry PI computer the size of a credit card connected to a hard drive, Athena will manage all your digital items, categorizing them automatically. Athena also champions connectivity with external devices, so that you can have your entire digital world at your fingertips. Just connect via wi-fi your smartphone, e-reader or smart TV and you are ready to enjoy the content of your Athena library whilst charging your personal device. Fancy some more reading material? No problem! Athena is preloaded with content from Project Gutenberg which means your shiny new bookshelf already comes with over a whopping 40,000 free e-books!

Athena is also available in a special ‘Contract’ version that can be integrated within public spaces such as waiting rooms, train stations or airport. With so many free titles available, Athena well and truly breaks cultural barriers by making culture available to everyone.

Athena is a revolutionary product that combines the heritage of the past with the complexity of the future using a clean, simple design and state of the art technology.

Breaking the chains of the physical, Athena frees your world making it available everywhere.

Athena, your world everywhere

design Eugenia Minerva, 2016

Cosa diventerà l’oggetto “libreria” quando tutto il suo contenuto perderà fisicità?

Questa la domanda da cui è nato il progetto Athena.

Nell’ultimo decennio il modo in cui abbiamo accesso alle informazioni sta cambiando da un giorno all’altro drasticamente. Libri, musica, video e immagini hanno perso la loro consistenza materica, diventando file che viaggiano nel web. Con Internet of Thing ormai divenuto realtà e i dispositivi “smart” prepotentemente entrati nelle nostre case si sta rendendo necessaria  una rivoluzione anche nella conservazione e fruizione dei dati.

Athena vuole essere una risposta a queste riflessioni su come sta cambiando il nostro modo di gestire, fruire e conservare ciò che amiamo e che nutre la nostra anima,  su come cambiano i luoghi e gli oggetti destinati a questo sia nella casa, che negli spazi pubblici.

Athena è molto più che una semplice libreria. Grazie ad un piccolo computer incorporato (Raspberry Pi), poco più grande che una carta di credito, Athena archivierà i tuoi contenuti multimediali organizzandoli automaticamente in categorie; potrai anche accedervi direttamente dai i tuoi apparati “smart”, così avrai tutto il tuo mondo digitale a portata di mano. Connetti semplicemente  via wi-fi il tuo smartphone, e-reader, o la tua smart-TV ad Athena e potrai fruire di tutti i tuoi contenuti multimediali anche mentre ricarichi i tuoi dispositivi.

Vorresti altro da leggere? Nessun problema! Athena  è precaricata con contenuti del Progetto Gutenberg, il che significa che la tua nuova libreria è già fornita di 40000 e più e-book gratuiti!

Infatti, nella sua versione “contract”, Athena diventa un punto lettura e divulgazione culturale da inserire nei luoghi dell’attesa, mettendo in pratica quello che è lo slogan del progetto “rompere le barriere dell’ignoranza e dell’analfabetismo”.

Tutto questo in una forma che rompe l’archetipo di libreria attraverso un rovesciamento delle misure tipiche dell’oggetto tradizionale, lo epura da ogni fisicità per farlo dialogare nell’ambiente domestico con la qualità di un segno grafico.

Athena diventa un tramite tra un passato tangibile e un futuro evanescente.

OneTwoThree Table

The two main features of methalcrylate are transparency and colour.
These are not conventional stackable tables where each table is placed on top of the other. This coffee table is actually
made of three separate transparent tables combined together to form one colorful mix.
But if you need an other table…here it is!
ONE, TWO, THREE…colours!

Towerbridge desk

A functional desk should give space to all stuff we need on it but leaving free space for working, reading, sketching.

With Towerbridge I’d like to give an answer to this need. The principle is very simple: desk has holes for threaded broomstick fixed with wooden bolt, that hold shelves in 2 different length.

You could decide how many shelves and where to put them according to your needs.

It’s all made in natural beech wood.

Max&Moritz lamp

The idea comes from the stacking wooden rings for children. The aim is to have a small lamp with a playful and emotional aspect, thanks to natural wood in 4 essence: walnut, beech, pine, mahogany. Rings are handcrafted with lathe and can be moved to change the final shape: so Max became Moritz just turning one ring.

Max and Moritz are inseparable and if you say hallo, they greet you swinging.

I enjoy discovering the playful aspect of items and tools that are employed in our every day life. Often using the caliper in my work, I once noticed how it resembles a mouth talking and there it came the inspiration for a series of talking puppets called Callypuppets!

Callypuppets are suitable for both small children and older children and there’s no limit to the amount of stories and adventures they can create! They can even put on mini shows by building a small stage with the packaging provided. Thanks to its natural finish, you can also paint it in your favourite colour!

Callypuppets are made of laser cut wood and assembled in my own studio with non-toxic glues. It is a toy designed with children in mind, so we use only natural materials and no small pieces.
