Le design, une arme de choix dans l’accompagnement à la transition énergétique !

ON JUN 15, 2016
Ingénieur civil de formation, Thomas Duquesne est arrivé chez Stûv en 2006. Amené à coordonner l’équipe de recherche et développement, il y découvre la complexité vertueuse issue de la collaboration et de la confrontation des idées émanant des différents métiers de l’entreprise. Considérant le design industriel comme un outil de base dans l’accompagnement de la transition d’un modèle de croissance austère basé sur le consumérisme à celui de sobriété heureuse, il expérimente quotidiennement la force de cette dynamique créative dans l’accomplissement du projet d’entreprise Stûv : Proposer un ensemble de solutions durables contribuant à la volupté thermique dans le bâtiment.

Here's a piece and accompanying video from a recent presentation by artist Iamikan that was held as part of PechaKucha Night in Charleston Vol. 9, sent to us by gallery director Atmah Ja.Pecha Kucha, an international event, brings together innovative artists possessing expansive and visionary ideas with the intention of inspiring and igniting audiences the world over. At PKN Vol. 9, artist Iamikan was invited to lecture on his creative process, showcasing his collection projected on a 12x14 backdrop screen. His originality and uncanny flare to perform to his creative beat left the crowd suspended, taking the stage to animate a cartoon like character called “Master of Organized Chaos,” Iamikan’s mentor from a parallel universe training him in the science of computer programming and projection. Master OC and a seemingly vulnerable Iamikan meet “off of the grid” of earth tangible time for a final “stage of training/preparation”. Iamikan’s “windows” are fully updated, preparing him to be projected into the “earth's program,” 30 plus years before he will take the stage and lecture at PKN Vol. 9. This transition takes place in order to observe and assimilate nature’s intelligence as a technology to merge with “human-nature’s” technology. In quantum speed, right in front of the audience Iamikan gives a one of a kind performance demonstrating his philosophy “ The art of Infinite Possibility…Here's a look at the video: httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zmE8Z-J4hy4
3D Printing & Mass Customization
Matt Compeau and Bi-Ying Miao of Hot Pop Factory are very aware of the fact that digital fabrication technologies like 3D printing are becoming mainstream. In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Toronto Vol. 20), they discuss the emerging new movement; one where you'll be able to design every object you own, from your kitchen knives to your cell phone. This is the new industrial revolution, a transition from mass-production to mass-customization.
Getting Down and Derby
Finding passion always seems to occur when we least expect it. Alex Krosney went to her first roller derby bout in April of 2011 –- it was love at first whistle. In "Getting Down and Derby" we see that through a year of blood, sweat, tears, and track burn later Lex Go was born. A member of the Winnipeg Roller Derby League, Alex tells us (at PKN Winnipeg Vol. 16) how he became a skater on the All-Stars travel team and the captain of the home team that wins all the afterparties, the Valkyries’ Wrath. Alex illustrates, through her roller derby exploits, the transformative power the sport can have on any one -- especially for those in a period of transition.
The Orchestra in Transition
“In order to survive the orchestra needs to search for a balance between artistic tradition and economic reason.” Director General and Artistic Director for the South Netherlands Philharmonic Stefan Rosu knows that the classical symphony orchestra is facing dramatic change in recent years. In “The Orchestra in Transition” from PKN Maastricht Vol. 23, Stefan shows us that orchestras must adapt to survive, and he goes into depth on how it can do so without losing its essence in the process.
“I was really interested in how through autobiography, I could tell stories.” Heidi Hogden speaks about her illustration work, and how her insomnia was often a source of inspiration.

Our Treasured Non-Moments
“These little non-moments you think are nothing mean a lot to me.” Every time photographer Connie Tsang returns to her hometown to see her parents she’d get a bit sad — her parents were rapidly changing. In “Our Treasured Non-Moments” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 121, she speaks about the seemingly dull yet vibrant moments she captures of her parents as they transition from busily running their family restaurant, to easing into retirement, to slowly ageing before her eyes.
“I had a dream I was in Japan. Next day I bought a ticket to the country. Talk about following your dreams.” Fitri Ali tells us how he travels solo in search of ‘it’.

PechaKucha Night Chelmsford Vol. 1
Do we ever stop and ask the question, why do we do what we do? Could it be that we are going about it the wrong way and there's a better way – a more thoughtful way to achieving a fulfilled life? PechaKucha brings together people who want to inspire and be inspired. At each event, a host of speakers take up the challenge to present on the topics that mean the most to them by following the 20x20 rule: they only have 20 images and 20 seconds per slide, with no stopping! The format of the event has become so popular that's it's happening in over 1060 cities around the world. We can see why too, as the short format to the night works beautifully, with only 6 minutes and 40 seconds for each talk it keeps the speakers on their toes, as well as preventing them from waffling on for ages and hogging the stage! And it also works perfectly for the audience, allowing them to receive bite-size bits of info without having their attention drifting off (which often happens at longer events). We have to give a special mention to our amazing presenters James Wilkinson, Beverley Matthews, Lindsey Emrich, Tayo Jones, Tame Isomura, Megan Hocklin Bennett, Aytac Uzmen, Martin Plummer and Rachael Laurence. All of them together gave the most inspiring talks and a real connection was made. Also, I've got to give a mention to the team at The Transition who kept everyone well watered throughout the night, and the amazing team of volunteers who helped run the event with Martin and I, between them they helped create a really well-polished event. We'd love to know what you think over on our Twitter or Facebook. And as a final note, we are keen to get out plans for Vol. 2 out in the coming weeks, if you want to present at the next event we want to hear from you! Drop us an email.
