In the volume of silence

Future Shock has become a shock of the present. The speed of the future advent exceeds the speed of our adaptation to changes. The unnecessary information hid houses, friends, and even the sky from us. Time as a universal value becomes more expensive and inaccessible. Efforts at the information’s sorting and consumption exceed a useful effect of her. The need to stop at the right place at the right time is a prerequisite of the next step.

We have returned personal space to the man. The V1 chair gives you the retire in any room volume. Outside – one of the most durable yet lightweight materials, aluminum. Inside – felt – the nonwoven fabric, maximally absorbing the sound. The acoustic atmosphere of the chair’s internal volume allows you to focus on your thoughts and feelings. Large soft cushions are made of chenille with flock substrate and hollofayber is used as a filling. There is enough space both for single and joint rest.

Facts that made us take thought:

– The term “future shock” was defined by futurist Alvin Toffler in the eponymous book in 1970.

– The human brain is able to perceive and accurately process the information at a speed of up to 25 bits per second. Such speed of data assimilation enables a person to read up to three thousand books throughout life, on condition that each day he will take 50 pages of text.

– This July scientists have found a new speed record of data transmission via optical fiber – 43 terabits per second. Transmission of the two-hour movie channel in high definition with this channel takes a couple of milliseconds. The analog human can’t keep up with the rate and volume of such data transmission.

– As a whole for 100 years the movement speed of transport increased 100 times,timesspeed of communication systems operation has increased 10million times, the rate of data processing have increased 1 million times.

Stack your Mytos

I’ve featured the Myto by Konstantin Grcic earlier. In 2008 I took this photo of a stack of Mytos and then forgot about it until I rediscovered the photo.
