The Manual Thinking studio will be closed for the month of August. In the meantime, taking advantage of our workspace, visible at street level in the centre of Barcelona, we have teamed up with IED Barcelona and Cofrad to showcase the outfits designed by IED´s fashion design students. Also, the vivid composition gives an example of an active workshop like the ones that take place during the rest of the year, with a slightly different choice of clothing perhaps.
If you are interested in working with us, if you would like to assist to one of our workshops, or if you have any other question, please write us at email@example.com, and we´ll get back to you in September!
Feel free to take and tag pictures. Happy holidays!
The Manual Thinking Box is a wall organizer that lets you store all your objects beautifully, at hand and at sight. Each module consists of a square base that is fixed to the wall, available in a variety of colors, and a transparent box which can be easily placed and removed from the base.
Like the other products of the Manual Thinking range, the Manual Thinking Box has been created with creative teamwork in mind. In Luki´s studio for example, the Manual Thinking Box are housing hundereds of items, such as inspirational objects, material samples, tools and materials for prototyping by hand. The participants, although new to the studio, can localize and take out whatever object they need at any moment for improvement idea creation and visualization. Instant creativity!
The Manual Thinking Box can be used to create an inspiring workspace, to organize your office materials at sight, to let your kids store their toys, to keep your bathroom accessories neat and clean, to display your collections… the possibilities are infinite!
Manual Thinking is created by Luki Huber (Luzern, 1973) and Gerrit Jan Veldman (Leicester, 1983), who initially developed the tool for internal use in their product design studio situated in Barcelona. The tool has taken shape and has been tested during extensive collaborations with clients where organization, creativity and teamwork have been essential for success.
In December 2009 the design studio moved to its actual location in the center of Barcelona, which has been arranged as a space where clients are invited to co-create on their projects together with the studio’s team members and other strategic guests.
The Manual Thinking tool plays a central role in this process, enabling newly formed teams with participants of different backgrounds and nationalities to work with each other in an effective manner from the very minute they enter the studio!
Manual Thinking is used for the idea generation, concept creation and proyect management of the range of products designed by Luki Huber for the Spanish kitchenware brand Lékué. On this map an overview is visualized of the products created between 2006 and 2010, amongst which the lemon squeezer, decopen and family of steamcases.
