Project Description

Smart Office

Description:

Have you ever imagined a life that is completely prepared for? The lights and air-conditioning are on once you enter your office, a coffee ready on your desk with your computer automatically switched on? You are not far from your dream anymore as you can have them all with smart living.

In response to the government’s policies to develop Hong Kong into a smart city, the public and private sectors have gradually started to embrace innovation and technology for a people-centric and sustainable living environment. The「DesignXcel」team was excited to learn that the collaborator, NowHere Design Limited, shares the same vision to further the progress both in integrating design and smart strategies into our community.

In order to visualise how innovation and technology may impact and facilitate our daily life in unexpected ways,「DesignXcel」connected the architecture graduate Derek Tam, and the two creative media graduates, Ivory Tsoi and James Wong, with Tony Lau, Creative Director of NowHere to work together on the Smart Office demonstration unit.

While Derek had to deal with physical interior design and architectural construction of the demonstration unit of 9 sqm., Ivory and James were looking for ways to virtualise the wonderful “prepared for” experience into a digital edition of equal interactivity for popularisation.

In their design, both groups had to factor in a series of personalised smart automation features such as centralised lighting control, computer workstation, smart glass walls that work accordinging to occupancy and daylight sensors for automatic atomisation, motorised shades and drapery, touch screens and remotes, A/V control system, user interface and many more. The space also makes use of a special mobile smart office desk from POSH Office Systems (HK) Ltd., a height-adjustable system that merges ergonomic design and self-monitoring function that responds to your needs and choices, be it sitting or standing posture, one can regularly stretch the body. Ultimately, the collaborative efforts amount to display the luxury for a painless system of office support that is energy-saving, people-friendly and smart.

你可曾想過如果人生每一步都被預先安排好,生命會是怎樣?試想像一下,當你緩緩步進辦公室時,燈光及空調已事先啟動,一杯香濃的咖啡正安放於你的辦公桌上待你享用,以及已有備用狀態的電腦靜靜等待你的到來。今時今日,這不再是夢,因為這一切,智能生活都能為你辦到。

回應政府希望把香港發展成智能都市的政策,香港的公共和私營界別亦着手把創新科技迎入一個以人為本的可持續發展生活空間中。當得知現在設計有限公司(NowHere)抱持於社區中融入設計和智能科技的相似概念時,《設計列陣》團隊亦非常雀躍,欲作進一步的探討。

為了能具體展現創新和科技對我們日常生活出乎意料的正面作用,《設計列陣》團隊牽引了建築系畢業生譚迪洋、兩位創意媒體系畢業生蔡雅怡和黃浩賢,以及現在設計的創意總監劉志海,一同在智能辦公室的示範空間上合作。

譚同學主要負責室內設計和建築,完成一個九平方米的展示空間;而蔡同學和黃同學則負責為這個「預先安排妥當」的奇妙體驗創作一個數碼版本,為大眾提供同樣高互動性的網頁。

在他們的設計中,於各組畢業生都要考慮到一系列的個人化智能調整功能,如中央燈光控制、電子化工作空間、根據使用檢控及日光檢測系統自動調節霧化程度的智能玻璃牆、機動化窗簾、輕觸式屏幕和操控、影音調控、用家介面和更多其他項目。當中更特別加入科譽(香港)有限公司的流動智能辦公桌,一個結合人體功學設計及自動檢測功能的系統,可隨意調節高度,按個人需要選擇轉換坐姿或站立,定期舒展。而以上種種,都是希望能透過此合作計劃向大眾展示一個既環保且用家為本,而又具智能元素的辦公室配套系統,一嚐無顧慮的奢侈。
