Metronome DS

< >

The DS Metronome Technology project is about creating a full range of Hi-Fi devices for an audiophile audience. The Metronome Technology Company is designing and manufacturing by hand all the material to ensure highest quality of sound.The range includes a player, a server, a converter, a power supply and a remote control designed like a system. Also, each device must make its function readable in the sound production chain. The project's approach has been to give a sensitive face to an electronic technology. A singular piano keyboard device for controlling the devices engages a gesture that reconnects to the touch of an analog musical instrument. Another major challenge lies in the production scenario in which 90% of the parts produced are common to all types of devices. The overall structure is designed as a chassis on which specific parts are placed according to the nature and role of the device in the range. The economic approach of the design articulates an optimization of the processes with the qualities of an artisanal manufacture.

Global design studios of the new university residence Ponsan Bellevue consisted in a comprehensive reflection on management of interior space, different functions, uses and furnishings, lighting and aesthetics for all types of habitat: individual studio (16m2), studio for people with limited mobility (18 m2), family studio (28m2). In consultation with the architects of the project, we proposed a different typology from that of the cell or flat miniaturized by designing a space able to be reclassified according to the uses. As the backbone of the interior design, we designed a furniture articulating the main functions (cooking / work / receive / rest ...) and releasing living space. Our approach promoted lasting and honest materials as well as openness and flexibility to avoid "retractable" or over-specialized. Beyond the technical aspect, the goal was the sustainability of the design in terms of uses and aesthetics, its adaptability to different lifestyles, cultures and personalities of the students.

The design of server CTRL is continuity of the approach engaged with the computer Alt. 
The bias of reusing the trunk of the computer echoes a desire for economy of industrial resources, as well as material and energy implemented for its production. Both entity and core of the network, the server can be used alone or clustered in multiple configurations: wall hanging, storage in a rack, stack or alignment.Adaptability of installation and possibility of dividing the servers solves a major cause of energy expenditure that is cooling the heat generated by this type of material.
