Moniteurs has grown in recent years. More projects, more teams means more meetings. With the restructuring of the office spread over two floors, it became clear that the meeting rooms and their occupancy must be better communicated for everyone. A team from Moniteurs developed an object that enables better communication between the workspace on the upper floor and the conference room in the basement. It was to be combined analogously with digital and implemented in 3D printing.
Prototyping und Produktdesign
Skeuomorphism, a style in which objects imitate the material or shape of other objects, forms the design framework around the concept for the meeting indicator.
The concept idea is a miniature replica of our conference room on whose table a job object can be placed. This object is equipped with an NFC tag (Near Field Communication). An NFC reader installed in the table is connected to a micro controller and sends a message to the slack channel of the corresponding job as soon as the job object is placed on the table.
Das Zimmermodell bleibt aus Pappe, im Sockel wurden die Schaltkreise installiert . Der „Tisch“ wurde aus transluzenten Material gedruckt, LED Licht wurde integriert und bringt den Tisch zum Leuchten wenn das Job-Objekt aufgelegt wird.
