High Tech - High Touch

:: High Tech – High Touch ::

In the Future Evolution House we want to redefine home control/management systems.

The future is touch technology with sensitive interfaces, clear symbols and a user friendly intelligent system. We are working on it being an iHouse – i.e. with an electronic control system that is as easy, instinctive and elegant to use as the iPhone.


Project Smart Control:
The LIFESTYLE FOUNDATION are a design company from Tirol who are developing a special and completely new form of room control system – with Home Apps that can be projected onto any space such as the wall or desk.

 



Project Smart Material:
A smart glass that changes from opaque to transparent at the touch of a switch separates (or unites) the “kin” part of the house from the “hub”.


 

PARTNERS:
We are working with these innovative companies on the project. Please click on the logo for more information:

We are drawn to Dornbracht by their consequent design and philosophy around the theme of water.

Minimalism meets technical expertise, plus innovation, and excellent personalized professional advice. And they still find time to support the arts, explore world food culture and bathing rituals and innovate.

Alape is not just about sinks. It is about individuality and shaping space. A great challenge for a bathroom, but one that they rise to with great success.

In a time where bathrooms are becoming ever more central to interior design, they have responded with a clear and clever range of simple but stunning sinks.

Italian kitchen design at its best.

"Duemilaotto" by our favourite designer Piero Lissoni stands out for its distinct tactile look. A bold but beautiful combination of elegant kitchen block and cupboards contrasted cleverly with a weathered wooden dining table top. Made from pinewood salvaged from a 100 year old Italian mountain hut it brings individuality plus authenticity and history back into modern design.

Quooker is a small, simple but brilliant product that ticks all the boxes for being part of a future house.

It saves energy, makes life easier, and you can throw a bulky appliance (the kettle) away. The Quooker delivers boiling water on tap (literally), and as a British 3 litres-of-tea-a-day drinker, this is one of my favourite future house innovations.

The distinctive modern signature look of the flooring from this Danish company belies the fact that it was founded in 1898.

Four generations later they are still a friendly family firm, with carefully managed forests whose philosophy seems to say "we look after the trees, and you look after the wood."

Liebherr are constantly working to improve the efficiency of these traditionally energy-gobbling appliances.

The company do not just think environmentally, but also about the environment inside the fridge itself – with their BioFresh drawers to keep food fresher for longer.
