This is a concept design project for Facebook Oculus Team. The design challenge is to explore augmented and virtual reality by designing a future flex space for the firm Oculus. The workspace/meeting pod should transform in some way to accommodate different programs and allow for multiple modes of being in the workplace.

The design concept is simply taking from the Oculus logo. An oval created from two perfect circles, we found a huge potential in this simple shape. After all the trials and errors, we developed four different uses with four oval shapes furniture pieces.

The first phrase is SCULPTURE. While serving as a gigantic art piece, people can also lay on it, lean on it, or sit on it. The second phrase is THEATER. When all four furniture gathered and tilted to 30 degrees, it will serve as both a theatre and a small town hall area. Phase three is named CONFERENCE. Following the name, the pod will become a conference space holding up to 8 people at once. Phase four is named INDIVIDUAL. Whenever it is necessary, all four furniture can be detached from each other and serve as an individual focus pod.

このデザインはFacebook Oculusチームのためのコンセプト・プロジェクトです。設計課題はOculus社のために柔軟かつ多目的空間を設計し、建築/室内設計におけるAR/VRの可能性を探索することです。Oculusが求めているワーク+会議空間は、異なる需要に応じて、デザイン自体が変形しながら相応する環境を作り出し、従業員に使用させるものです。

外観デザインはシンプルにOculusのロゴを参考にしました。二つの円が隣合わせで作り出された楕円であり、私たちこのシンプルな形の中に大きな可能性を感じました。試行錯誤のすえ、最終的に4つの同じ楕円形の部品からなる4つもの異なる形態と用途のデザインが出来上がりました。

最初の形態は彫刻です。4つのパーツがバラバラに配置されていながら回転し、巨大な彫刻を形成すると同時に、従業員は空間内で横になったり、寄りかかったり、座ったりすることできます。第二形態は劇場です。遠隔操作で4つのパーツを1カ所に集めて30度に傾けると、小型な劇場または舞台が現れてプレゼンテーションの場として使えます。第三形態は会議と呼ばれ、その名の通り,ポット(POD)は8人を同時に収容できる会議空間へと変身できます。最後の形態を独立個体と呼び、必要に応じて4つのパーツはそれぞれから切り離され、独立した個人集中空間へと変貌し仕事場としても使えます。

这件作品是为Facebook Oculus团队的概念设计项目。设计课题是为Oculus公司设计一个灵活的多功能空间来探索增强和虚拟现实在建筑/室内设计上的可能性。Oculus所要求的工作+会议空间需要在某种方式下进行转换,从而适应不同需求并形成相对应的环境提供给员工所使用。

本件作品的外观设计简单地借鉴了Oculus的标识。在由两个完美的圆圈组成的椭圆上,我们发现了存在这个简单形状中的巨大潜力。经过无数次的推敲和研究,我们最终以四件相同的椭圆形部件开发出了四种不同的形态和用途。

第一个阶段是雕塑。当四个部件乱而有序的错落旋转,形成一件巨大的雕刻艺术品的同时,员工可以通过躺着,靠着,或者坐在上面与其进行互动。第二个阶段是戏剧。通过远程遥控将四个部件聚集一处并倾斜到30度,这时它将形成一个剧院和一个小型的展览发布空间。第三阶段名为会议。如同这个名称,pod将成为一个可以同时容纳8人的会议空间。第四阶段叫做独立个体。当有需要时四件家具可以彼此拆分变形为一个个单独的个人专注空间用于工作。

OCULUS: THE DESIGN

HOW IT WORKS

PHASE 1: SCULPTURE

Phase 1: Sculpture. It serves as a multi purpose structure the public can interact with whether he or she wants to lay on it, lean on it, sit on it, or even attempt to scale it.  

PHASE 2: THEATRE

Phase 2: Theatre. This serves as both a theatre and a small town hall area. You have the opportunity of showing any type of film or video or you can leave the screen alone and make a presentation yourself.

PHASE 3: CONFERENCE

Phase 3: Conference. In this position the structure serves as a collaborating space where you can host different types of meetings or maybe just sit down to eat your lunch for the day.

PHASE 4: SOLO

Phase 4: Solo.  In this exploded position the Oculus structure allows you to sit down by yourself and focus, or you can share a table with someone to have a coffee or collaborate on a project.
