UNIST future designers (School of Design and Human Engineering) had been displayed their masterpieces from December 18 to 23, 2015 at the Industrial Design Graduation Exhibition in Luminarie gallery, Seoul. Total 14 products including furniture, construction, daily necessities, and means of transportation caught a lot of observers’ eyes. These products all represented the convergence of engineering and design.
There are two main pieces to introduce from the exhibition: MiSTIC and Deeeep wash.
First, MisTIC, the humidifier, is united with a speaker and a film projector. It satisfies users’ hearing and sight senses while maintaining indoor humidity. This special kind of humidifier can show you the video by using its steam and play the music. In this creative product, the technology of speaker, film projector, and humidifier is all combined.
Second, there is a washstand that gets bigger following the water pressure from the tap. Deeeep wash is the product that helps people use the wash stand neatly by controlling the amount of water in the water stand. This washstand made of silicon has a tiny hole under itself. The operating principle is that the hole gets automatically bigger as the amount of water from the tap gets larger. Therefore, the users can avoid wasting water and use the stand without messing it around.
This graduation exhibition in Seoul is to commemorate the graduation of industrial design track of School of Design and Human Engineering, UNIST. At the exhibition, not only the graduation works but also the outcomes of the Creative Design Engineering School were introduced.
The concept of display, Connexio, is the Latin word means the connection and conclusion. It means that two different categories end up with one conclusion without losing each one’s origin. Prof. Yunwoo Jeong (School of Design and Human Engineering) says, “We tried to show the design that can represent the mission of convergence education at UNIST. Students presented the understanding of engineering and business administration in their designs creatively.”
Prof. Henri Christiaans (Dean of School of Design and Human Engineering) says, “It is special since our students put the convergence technique of human engineering, business administration, and technology into the design. This is the reason that UNIST students will become the leading designers who will rule the industry in the future.”
