For all those in the business of designing desirable, joyful experiences, or if you’re looking for a little interaction satisfaction, then this Pre-Work Talk has your name on it – possibly, in lights! On Tuesday, November 13, we’re looking at the creative ways designers are playing with Human-Machine Interaction (HMI) in spatial contexts, and how these could be applied to other day-to-day products and services. Come and see where the light, sounds, and surfaces can guide you.
Our first speaker is product and project manager Sebastián Mealla, who specializes in HMI and user-centric design. Sebastian has worked on the design of digital products for the creative industry, spanning from music to wearables and interactive machine learning. Lately he’s been focusing on cutting-edge lighting technology to create high-impact experiences for architecture, entertainment, retail and hospitality, as well as creating disruptive business models around the concept of 'lighting as a service' through his company ProtoPixel.
We will then be stepping into the interactive spatial world of creative director, author, and lecturer Tobias Sievers. Tobias also plays around with the fun side of HMI, mixing visuals, sound and space to design engaging, entertaining, and delightful experiences for anything from museums, to stores and stages. He will be sharing insights from his new book ‘Handbuch Mediatektur’ in which he provides criteria on how to develop and optimize mediatecture ideas and concepts to really electrify a space and immerse an audience.
Come and see the possibilities and be inspired! Join us from 8:30am for a warm cup of coffee, then talks take place from 9 – 10am. See you at our studio at Paul-Lincke-Ufer 39/40.
